After a month of frozen pitches, cup defeats and draws Salford City got back to winning ways yesterday, completing a double over Wakefield with a two goal home win.

A ponderous first half had match-rusty players almost yawning along with the crowd, apart from a Rhodri Giggs free kick that flew just over the bar and a cast iron penalty appeal turned down by the ref when Cayne Hanley was hauled to the ground.

But the second half squealed into action after less than five minutes as Darren Hockehall buried a penalty, given by the ref this time when Rhodri Giggs was bundled over in the area.

From this point Salford City were totally dominant and could have tripled the score with a wave of breakaways down the left and right, and through the centre. The win was finally sealed when Jamie Rother, on as a sub after a long injury lay-off, hit an unstoppable shot that rattled the inside of the post before crossing the line. Giggs could have made it three with a scizzor kick that flew just past the post but the result was never in doubt, bar a Wakefield chance that clipped a post.

Salford City have got back to winning ways and will be looking to build on this for the next game a week on Tuesday when Whitton Albion are the visitors to Moor Lane. Kick off 7:45pm
