Wakefield and Salford prepare for final match

Wakefield Trinity and Salford Red Devils meet at Headingley Stadium in their final match of the season.

Following the decision to end the season now, rather than in two weeks, both sides cannot reach the playoffs, thus this is their final game.

Salford still would have had a chance at being in the standby spot, but were deducted three wins last night over a long-standing debt.

Both sides come into the game in good form. Wakefield have won three of their last four matches, while Salford have won two out of three since Wembley.

The match kicks off at 5.30pm and the referee will be Liam Moore.
