Salford v Wakefield

Written by Callum Walker

Neither side has experienced much joy in 2020 so far with both Salford and Wakefield recording just one win – Salford against new boys Toronto and Wakefield in a surprise victory over Warrington. Both sides also lost last weekend, against Leeds and Castleford respectively.

Team changes

Ian Watson welcomes back Lee Mossop, Dan Sarginson and Josh Johnson to his Salford squad with Krisnan Inu, Tyrone McCarthy and Jack Ormondroyd dropping out.

Wakefield boss Chris Chester has had to make two enforced changes from the side that lost to Castleford with Ryan Hampshire (broken jaw) and Joe Arundel (ACL) succumbing to injury, with Connor Bailey and Alex Walker replacing the duo in the 21-man squad. Chris Green is back from a spell on the sidelines as James Batchelor makes way.

Last time they met

Salford enjoyed its success over Trinity the last time these two sides met in a 44-20 triumph back in June 2019. Prior to that, however, Salford has dominated Trinity at home making Salford a 70% chance to win this game at home, will history once again repeat itself? or are we seeing the likes of a new and unpredictable Trinity we shall see soon?

ERL Prediction

Trinity did well against Warrington a fortnight ago, but the conditions and state of the pitch did a lot to help them. With conditions once again predicted to be foul, Wakefield may well spring a surprise against last season’s Grand Finalists who have yet to really click into gear.

Wakefield Trinity for the win.

If we had to pick a Line

Wakefield +4.5
