Pat Richards marked his return from a 17-week injury lay-off with a brace of tries and 5 goals as Wigan took a step further to securing the League Leaders' Shield on Monday night with a 38-6 win.

The Warriors now need one more win from the remaining two regular season fixtures to go into the play-offs as League Leaders for the second time in three years and to make it a third season in succession the Warriors players have brought silverware to the DW Stadium.

Wigan's first half points all came in the second quarter of the half as Salford's defence stood its ground despite Wigan's dominance of the territorial battle.

The first try from the man the Wigan fans call Superman came after 13 minutes. Richards returned a Daniel Holdsworth kick to run 30 metres before being brought down. From the resulting play, Richards got back into position to take a George carmont pass and slide in at the corner despite the attentions of Danny Williams to open Wigan's account.

Straight from the kick-off the Warriors were attack was once again led by Richards who broke free and could probably have scored himself but he chose to make sure of a second Wigan try by handing on to the supporting Sam Tomkins who has now scored in the last three consecutive home games against the City Reds.

Five minutes later, Richards added his second try as a Matty Smith cross field kick found the waiting winger who managed to ground it just before tumbling over the dead ball line for Wigan's 200th try of the 2012 campaign.

In the remaining 20 minutes of the half, the Warriors struggled to make attacking moves stick as they continued to pile pressure on the visitors, with the best scoring chance coming in the last minute of the half when from a scrum, Finch and Hock linked to make a gap but Tomkins overran the final ball which could've seen him through for a second try.

It took nine minutes of the second half for Wigan to resume the scorning as Salford withstood more pressure on their own line. Matty Smith eventually found a way through after having to regain his feet after a slip and the former Salford half managed to wriggle free enough to pop the ball up to Darrell Goulding who wasn't going to be stopped despite having two defenders on his back as he crossed the line.

As the hour-mark approached Jack Hughes was rewarded for good support play with his first try since June's away trip to Catalan. Brett Finch looked to take on the Salford line and was confronted with little else but space which enabled him to easily send the youngster over for his third first team try.

The Warriors continued to probe as Salford rarely got out of their own half, and George Carmont looked to find a way for Richards to return with a hat trick with 15 minutes to go but his pass was forward.

Instead, Harrison Hansen was next to score two minutes later, and Sean O'Loughlin added to this when Jeff Lima made a break up the middle from 40 metres out before passing to his captain to race clear for Wigan's last try.

The City Reds were undeterred though and even in the last minute were prepared to push for a try which they were rewarded with when Jordan James scored in front of the away fans for the final try of the game.
