Late tries from Justin Carney and Niall Evalds earned Salford Red Devils victory at struggling Huddersfield, who remain bottom of Super League.

A brace of tries from Ukuma Ta’ai, plus further scores from Jake Connor and Jermaine McGillvary, established a 24-18 lead with 12 minutes to play.

But Carney and Evalds both crossed in a three-minute spell late on to secure a fourth win of 2016 for Salford.

The Giants have won only one of their eight games this season.

Former Giants prop Craig Kopczak had given Salford an early lead and Gareth O’Brien added another for the Red Devils, only for the visitors to trail 12-10 at half-time after tries by Ta’ai and Connor.

Josh Griffin’s score restored Salford’s advantage, but McGillvary’s effort and a second for Ta’ai looked to have earned a second Super League victory of the season for Paul Anderson’s men, before the visitors snatched victory in the closing stages.
