What is the lowest attendance to date if someone knows? I don't think it'll be lower than last week if I'm honest.

Ill go for Salford by 10.

London will be targeting this game to get off the mark for 2013, so I predict they will score at least 24 past our shaky defence. Broughton should play this week and with Foran & Mauro arriving from Aus today we have a much stronger team in theory - jetlag and lack of practice with the squad balancing this for now. If we show the passion, effort and fight of last week we will win 36 - 24 ......

Also I hope the traditional Friday 8pm KO, the win last week and new players will boost the crowd to over 3000. Our average gate was 5600 last year so some of those will be back. Heres hoping anyway :rolleyes:

The fact that London scored 18 points away at Wigan should be enough information to steer Salford well away from any complacency.

Broncos have followed the trend of playing a half back at full back and if this is repeated for this game I expect Sarginson to have a busy night now that the side with the lowest number of tries from kicks last year appear to want to amend that statistic.

I have concerns about the pace of the London wingers and the experience at hooker.

Long coach trips also seem to aid team bonding on occasions but Salford will win this game to remove any lasting memory of the game last year at the Stoop.

Last year now seems a million miles away as the new Salford begins to emerge and move forward one red square at a time.

Expect Mauro to get a run out wih Jewitt missing.

I still think Salford are weak and unpredictable which probably means a good London win. They never let us believe a game is in the bag.

Salford by 6, attendance 4158.

I'm not sure Reds would get that against 2 decently supported teams, let alone London, who might have <100 travelling support

The good thing about this fixture is that anything other than a draw is a good result as far as widnes are concerned

Set off for the game at 5:15pm. Stuck in traffic jam on M62. One hour to cover about 2 miles. Gave up at 7:30pm near Brighouse and went back home. Not happy. We're losing, too. Got some beer in on the way home. There will be some drowning of sorrows in a bit.

Can imagine quite a few will have done the same. With Salford being in the position they're in, the motorway traffic problems tonight and the fact they're playing London, it might actually be a scarily low attendance.
