Salford Red Devils can make play-offs, says Gleeson

Salford Red Devils centre Martin Gleeson insists his side can make the play-offs, despite a stuttering first-half of the season which has brought much controversy.

The Red Devils sit 11th on the Super League ladder after the first chunk of the season, and have already replace head coach Brian Noble with Iestyn Harris, as Marwan Koukash continues to chase success in Salford. However, despite the turbulence, Gleeson is still certain that given time, the Devils will improve and make the top-eight.

When asked if they can make the cut, he said: “I firmly believe that.

“We are going in the right direction and a few areas just need tightening up, which they will do as we move along We are going to get better now and we’re all buying into what Iestyn’s brought in.

“We’re very inconsistent within a game. We’re good for 10 minutes and then poor for the next 10. We need to concentrate on getting that 80-minute performance this weekend.

“Iestyn has really lifted the intensity of training and he’s trying to implement some new systems. We’re nearly there, but just a few individual defensive errors with the ball are costing us.”
