Salford Red Devils building a reputation - Iestyn Harris

Salford Red Devils are beginning to build the reputation of a winning side, says their head coach Iestyn Harris.

The Super League side were in impressive form as they beat Wigan 24-18 to record their third win in a row, and they now sit third in the table.

The result ended a run of 17 successive defeats by Wigan for Salford.

"A reputation is built over a few months and a period of time, it's not built up over three or four games," Harris told BBC Radio Manchester.

"You've got to start somewhere and I think the players really want to build a reputation of being a consistent team.

"It was third versus fourth today and it's going to be first versus third next week (when Salford face Leeds) so you've got to have that consistency when you're taking the big teams on."

"We're starting to build that reputation, but there is a long way to go with that."

Salford will find out on Wednesday the result of Rangi Chase and Weller Hauraki's charges by the Rugby Football League for incidents against Huddersfield on Friday, with Hauraki possibly facing further punishment after his red card against the Warriors.
