Total Super League Meetings: 49 (17 wins for Salford, 32 wins for Cas) 

Salford return home this week with head coach Paul Rowley enjoying the spoils of a 22-20 victory over his former club Leigh to stake their claim for a play-off berth later in the season. 

The Red Devils are set to be boosted by the returns of Joe Burgess and Oliver Partington. Burgess scored 15 times in red and white last season, and is a huge benefit to the side as his partnership with Ken Sio seems to pay-off on an almost weekly basis. Partington is a handy asset for a team that often needs to rotate its forwards, and his return is great timing. Deon Cross is a nemesis of Castleford’s, scoring a try in all three appearances against Cas last season.

The Tigers sees a few more returning than Salford. Gareth Widdop returns from illness, Adam Milner’s suspension is over and two youngsters replace some absentees in Brad Martin and Sam Hall. Joe Westerman is suspended for this one, with Albert Vete, Jacob Hooken and Jason Qareqare also missing from Andy Last’s 21-man squad. 

Sportsman Stat: No team has made more errors in the Betfred Super League this season than Castleford, making 106 so far this year in comparison to 79 from Salford.
