Ade Gardner, pictured, and Francis Meli scored a try each for St Helens

The Reds have not won on Merseyside since 1980 and have now lost 29 successive matches at Saints after tries from Ade Gardner and Francis Meli with Lewis Charnock adding the extras.

Salford had not troubled the scorers until Liam Foran crossed over with 12 minutes left and while Marc Sneyd crossed late on - and converted - there was not enough time to complete a comeback that had nonetheless ensured some Saints nerves.
