Salford interim coach Alan Hunte will be hoping his side can build on last week's encouraging performance against St Helens as they prepare to face table-toppers Huddersfield.

  • Alan Hunte: Looking for another positive display from his Salford team
  • Anthony Mullally: Back in the Huddersfield squad after his spell at Batley 

The Reds gave Saints a real scare before succumbing to a narrow 14-10 loss at Langtree Park last Friday to give themselves renewed belief heading into the Easter double-header.

Lee Gaskell is set to make his Salford debut at centre after joining them on

loan from St Helens while interim coach Alan Hunte has handed a first senior

call-up to centre Edwin Okanga-Ajwang, who will be vying with Niall Evalds to

take the place of injured winger Danny Williams.

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson will be hoping for a positive response from his troops after their resounding 28-2 reversal at Warrington last time out.

Having been recalled from his loan spell at Batley, prop Anthony Mullally gets a spot in Anderson's party in place of the rested Larne Patrick.

Meanwhile, 18-year-old back-rower Peter Aspinall is named in the senior squad for the first time this season.

Salford 19-man squad: Broughton, Gibson, Howarth, Foran, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild, Godwin, Nero, Boyle, James, Neal, Fages, Sneyd, Owen, Evalds, Griffin, Murphy, Okanga-Ajwang

Huddersfield 19-man squad: 1 Scott Grix, 3 Leroy Cudjoe, 4 Joe Wardle, 5 Jermaine McGillvary, 6 Danny Brough, 7 Luke Robinson, 8 Eorl Crabtree, 9 Shaun Lunt, 10 Craig Kopczak, 11 Brett Ferres, 13 David Faiumu, 18 Aaron Murphy, 19 Jamie Cording, 20 Jacob Fairbank, 21 Dale Ferguson, 22 Anthony Mullally, 23 Matty Dawson, 25 Peter Aspinall, 29 Stuart Fielden
