Summary:l

This extra midweek came commenced a tough run of four games in six days for Wigan to end the regular season. Their play off place was secure anyway but finishing top of the table was still to be decided and a poor run of form could see them lose a home play off advantage. Wigan would have gone top of the table with a victory here but in the end perhaps were grateful for a draw. Salford had built an 8-0 lead by half time after tries from Rees and Cook and a goal from Bevan. That lead became 10-2 into the second half before Wigan began a fight back which made it 10-10 after tries from Charlie Seeling and Bert Jenkins. Then a penalty goal from Johnny Thomas put Wigan 12-10 ahead but Salford found a penalty to level late on.
