Star player set to return for Salford Red Devils

Salford Red Devils are set to host Castleford Tigers on Thursday night and Paul Rowley has been able to name a 21-man squad this week, having been limited to 20 last week.

The Red Devils defeated Leigh for the second time this season when they played on Saturday and only narrowly came out on top in a 22-20 win at Leigh Sports Village.

Rowley will hope his team can build on that having lost their last two before the weekend.

The most significant name on the team sheet is Oliver Partington who had been excellent at loose forward prior to his injury.

His ability to be a ball-playing forward is something that’s key to the way Salford play under Rowley and he’s certainly a huge boost should he made the 17-man squad for Thursday.

Partington is the only returning player but he’s a massive boost if fit.

Centre Tim Lafai remains out and Andy Ackers will look to build on his return last week with a second straight game.

Alex Gerrard and Adam Sidlow also remain on the side lines but the Red Devils are slowly returning to fitness and they’ll need that given the huge fixtures they have coming up.

Following Castleford they head to Perpignan before the international break at the end of the month.
