Noble wants his Salford side to build on their victory over Widnes

Jordan James

For Salford City Reds coach Brian Noble, whilst the win was good, he wants his side to go one step further and consolidate their performance by building on it in the coming weeks.

The win moves the Reds off the bottom of the ladder, with the game going back and forth, before a late try by Jordan James sealed the game for the Reds.

With the improvement in his side’s performances evident, Noble says the key is consistency as his side looks to work their way up the ladder.

“We’ve improved massively on last week and hopefully we can keep that going. It’s a thrill to climb off the bottom but that’s only a by-product of our hard work,” said Noble.

“If we focus on the ladder, we’re in big trouble. The challenge is staying off the bottom of the ladder. This place has been rocking for a while and it’s important we bring in some stability.

“It was really good to get on the end of a result like that, now we know how to close games out.

“The way we did it was Viagra 100mg pleasing. I’ve always said we’ve got some points in us, the challenge is to keep the other team out when they get near our line.”

It was a different story for Widnes coach Denis Betts, who was left wondering what could have been, with his only real positive aimed at half Joe Mellor who scored a hat-trick.

“They came in with a real point to prove,” he said.

“They came to our place and we put them to the sword and that was something we talked about.

“We didn’t really have a lot to throw at them. I’m sat here a bit bewildered. We were a bit devoid of ideas at times. We looked a bit flat.

“We controlled a large part of that game and I felt we had enough opportunites but we lacked a cutting edge.

“Joe Mellor was one of few with lots of energy and enthusiasm. When we got ourselves level, I thought we were going to kick on but you’ve got to give lot of credit to Salford. They worked really hard for each other and stuck to their task.”
