Wigan and Salford go head to head in crucial playoff clash

Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils will clash in what could be a crucial game in the race for the playoffs at the DW Stadium.

The Warriors have had a good rise since Magic Weekend, where they were only two points off the bottom and they are now only outside the playoffs on points difference.

As for Salford, they are on a good run themselves and will be eager to hold onto that final playoff position.

Wigan come into the game unchanged from their win at Huddersfield Giants last week.

As for Salford, they welcome new signing Tui Lolohea into the squad. Ken Sio and Ben Nakubuwai also come in in place of Lee Mossop and the suspended Adam Walker.

The game kicks off at 7.45pm

Key Battles

Liam Marshall vs. Jake Bibby- The two are set to become teammates next season, but both have their own strengths, Marshall with his speed and Bibby with his footwork, should make for a fascinating contest.

George Williams vs. Jackson Hastings- Two of the most exciting players in the league, and rumours will not go away about the pair potentially being teammates next season, but both are very tricky players and will be a handful for opposition defences.

Prediction

I think Wigan will carry on their good form into this one, they have been showing more than a few signs of life lately. I will go for them by four points.
