Salford Red Devils vs Wakefield Trinity
The Salford Red Devils welcome Wakefield Trinity to the AJ Bell Stadium for this round 18 match up from the Rugby Super League in a game that will have a massive say on which of these 2 struggling teams will play themselves back into the paly-off race and which, if either, will be dragged into the relegation scrap.
On their day, both of these 2 clubs can be a danger for anybody and they have the quality to impress even against the best but both teams have small squads and both have been hit hard by injuries and a lack of confidence from recent losses.
Salford start the round in 7th place, where they are 2 points behind 6th place Wakefield but with London at the bottom just 4 points behind Salford, the team that loses this one will be looking over their shoulder, especially if those at the bottom pick up more points this weekend. On the other hand, Castleford in 5th are just 2 points ahead of Wakefield, so a win will put them in the paly-off picture and put Salford on the edge.
Wirth things so tight in the mid-table, matches between those sides are simply must wins.
Both teams have now lost each of their last 4 matches, with Salford winning just 1 of their last 5 at home and Wakefield winning just 2 of their last 5 on the road.
With such little form between the 2, it is difficult to predict the outcome of this one.
On top form, both teams are amongst the most exciting to watch but both have been far below par recently and their free flowing attack of the early rounds has all but disappeared.
That was especially evident for Wakefield against Leeds but on the plus side their defence has remained relatively strong and in a game such as this, that should be enough for the win, although this one could easily go either way.
