Dragons hunt win.

CATALANS Dragons head into tonight's Super League basement clash looking for a third win of the season over Salford City Reds.

The Reds lost 24-12 at home to Kevin Walters' men in March and were beaten 30-8 in the Challenge Cup in Perpignan last month when a 27-hour journey took its toll.

With European flights restored, Shaun McRae's men will be better prepared for tonight's game at the Gilbert Brutus Stadium and will be buoyed by their 42-34 win over St Helens last Saturday.

"The last time we played, they were a bit unfortunate with the big bus trip," acknowledged Walters, who will give a debut to scrum-half Brent Sherwin.

"Their preparation will be much better and they're coming off a good win against Saints so they'll be confident.

"They have played some good football against in the past, we're very mindful of that, and they've had a few more wins than us."
