Wolves edged out
by Gary Skentelbery
SALFORD made it a hat-trick of victories over the Wolves this season with a thrilling one point victory at the Willows.
A drop goal from Andrew Dunemann was the difference between two committed sides in a pulsating clash.
Salford are now favourites to clinch 5th spot ahead of the Wolves with just four games remaining.
The Wolves looked set to end their jinx against the Reds as they led 12-22 early in the second half.
But some dismal defending undid all their good work as the home side ran in four unanswered tries in an 18 minute spell.
The Wolves gallantly led by their inspirational skipper Lee Briers fought back, but ran out of time.
The Wolves led at the break and stretched their advantage to 22-12 with a Chris Bridge try and a penalty from playmaker Briers.
But the Reds ran in four tries during a blistering 18-minute spell.
Warrington hit back through Michael Sullivan and Brent Grose but Dunemann's drop-goal kept the Reds clear.
