London Broncos survived a late Salford fightback to secure a 19-16 victory which kept alive their hopes of winning promotion back to Super League.

Tries from William Barthau, Scott Leatherbarrow and Jamie Soward, plus Barthau's drop-goal, helped the Broncos into a 19-6 lead with 10 minutes left.

However, Josh Griffin crossed twice late on to set up a nervy finish.

The win draws London level on points with fifth-placed Salford with one game of The Qualifiers remaining.
