Denis Betts hails Widnes resolve after fightback to beat Salford

Widnes celebrate

Coach Denis Betts praised his side's resilience after Widnes came from behind to beat Salford.

The Vikings won 32-18 on Thursday, adding to victories over London Broncos and Huddersfield Giants, to maintain their 100% start in Super League.

Widnes had produced a similar fightback to defeat the Giants six days earlier.

"I'd like to get to a situation where we don't have to do that, but you see a resilience and a character that will hold us in good stead," said Betts.

Widnes are one of four clubs - along with St Helens, Castleford and Leeds - to have won their first three fixtures in 2014.

After hammering London in their opening fixture, they turned around an eight-point deficit to beat Huddersfield on 28 February and trailed twice against the Red Devils before racing to victory in the final 20 minutes.

"It's a good start. You've just got to keep doing your best week-in, week-out," Betts told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"I know it sounds like a cliche, but we just keep turning up week after week wanting to put in a solid performance and being committed to what were trying to achieve."
