Salford temporary head coach Alan Hunte has revealed he would like to take the job on a permanent basis.
The 42-year-old has been in charge since
Phil Veivers' departure
and led the Reds to a much improved performance in the
23-23 draw with Wakefield.

if he wanted to lead the Salford City Stadium side, he said: "Of course, who doesn't want to be a Super League head coach?
"I've still yet to find something that I'd rather do more."
Hunte on Salford owner Dr Marwan Koukash
“He's such a positive guy, but he demands success, and I want to be part of that”
The former St Helens, Hull and Warrington centre finished his career with the Reds and was the head of youth development before being asked to take charge of first-team affairs.
New multi-millionaire owner Dr Marwan Koukash promised changes at the club following the 38-4 home defeat by London Broncos, and
chief executive Ed Farish revealed Australia head coach Tim Sheens
was on their list.
Great Britain coach Brian Noble is also rumoured
to be a target but the club have said
Hunte will remain in place
for another week at least.
"If I was to keep the job it means that the team is going in the right direction and with the new owner that can only be a good thing," he added.
"He's such a positive guy, but he demands success, and I want to be part of that success especially having been at the club for so long and seen the ups and downs.
"The last six months have really been tough, hopefully the next couple of months can see the tide turn and us become a real force in rugby league."
