Terry Newton, Brian Carney and Danny Tickle grabbed two tries each as Wigan easily beat Salford at the JJB Stadium.

The Reds took the lead when a Newton pass was intercepted by Stuart Littler, who had a walk-in to the line.

But Tickle hit back for the hosts before Carney and Newton (2) made it 24-6 at half-time.

Andrew Brocklehurst replied for the visitors after the break but tries from Carney, Joel Tomkins and Tickle sealed it for the Warriors.

Afterwards, Wigan coach Ian Millward praised the efforts of two-try hero Terry Newton.

"Terry was fantastic - he played really, really well. He really put his hand up and most of our tries came from him," he said.

I can sum up our performance in one word - pathetic
Salford coach Karl Harrison

"His ball selection was very good, and he was inspirational for us because of our injury problems.

"Our attitude was great and if we keep winning, we can still make the play-offs."

Salford coach Karl Harrison was furious after his side's third defeat to Wigan this season.

"I can sum up that performance in one word - pathetic," he said. "Certain players were poor and it is up to them to come up with the answers why.

"We came here full of confidence and I thought we had a good enough team out to win the ball game.

"But we got out-enthused, and that's just not good enough. They won all the collisions.
