Thursday 8th October, 17:30, Super League Round 15, Emerald Headingley Stadium, Leeds, Huddersfield Giants versus Salford Red Devils Match Preview

One could forgive Salford for taking their eye off the ball in the league given their recent Challenge Cup exploits, but the Red Devils occupy ninth having won their last two league games against Hull FC and Warrington. Huddersfield have gone one better with three wins in a row to move them up to sixth, including a simple 32-22 victory over Hull KR over a week ago.
