Marc Sneyd’s golden-point drop-goal earned Salford a third Super League win in five games and condemned Wakefield to a fifth straight defeat.

It was 13-13 on full-time, Mason Lino’s penalty levelling for Trinity before he and star man Sneyd traded drop-goals.

The hosts had led after four minutes when Ryan Brierley sent Matty Costello through a gap to go under the posts.

Trinity replied through Corey Hall and Reece Lyne before Chris Atkin gave Salford a 12-10 lead at the break.
