Hull KR v Salford (R11) preview

Salford City Reds, five points clear of Huddersfield Giants less than a month ago, could find themselves three adrift of the Giants at the foot of the engage Super League if results fail to go their way on Sunday.

While the rejuvenated Giants aim for a fourth successive win when they take on Harlequins RL at the Galpharm Stadium, the Reds face a crucial trip to fellow strugglers Hull Kingston Rovers, who have slumped to 10th place on the back of five straight defeats.

Salford have lost their last three matches, conceding 117 points in the process, and have once more lost their inspirational captain Malcolm Alker with a knee injury - but coach Karl Harrison remains optimistic.
