Friday 23rd October, 17:30, Super League Round 17, Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens, Wigan Warriors versus Salford Red Devils Match Preview

It’s second versus eighth as Wigan take on Salford in a bid to confirm their place in the top four. The Red Devils, however, are likely to have a hangover from their Challenge Cup defeat to Leeds at the weekend which could let the Warriors take advantage. Wigan, meanwhile, won bravely against Warrington, 18-14, to halt a two-game losing run.
