Result: Warrington Wolves 24-20 Salford City Reds

An under strength Warrington side hold on for a tight 24-20 win over Salford to put pressure on league leaders Wigan

Warrington had to survive a late scare during their 24-20 victory over Salford as they climbed up to third in the Super League table.

The teams seemed very even in the first period as Rhys Williams scored a brace of tries for the hosts only to be matched by Salford's Ashley Gibson.

Gareth O'Brien's second conversion was the only score seperating the two teams.

Warrington stepped up their game in the second period and extended their lead with a converted Ben Currie try.

The home side were further ahead as O'Brien once again converted following a try from Garreth Carvell.

As Warrington made late substitues Salford almost forced their way back in to the game when Daniel Holdsworth capitalised on a mix up in the hosts' defence.

Danny Williams latched onto a loose ball to touch down in the final stages to worry Warrington but the home side held on for the win.
