A strong second-half performance helped Hull Kingston Rovers to a 28-18 win over Salford City Reds in the Super League.

The visitors dominated the opening 40 minutes, with tries from Matty Ashurst, Stephen Wild and Wayne Godwin giving Salford an 18-6 lead at the break.

Cory Paterson got the hosts off to a strong start in the second half, scoring his second try of the match inside the opening two minutes.

Further efforts from Craig Hall, Travis Burns and Michael Dobson helped KR to a 10-point lead with less than six minutes left to play.
