Salford City Reds head coach Phil Veivers is confident the Super League club will win a stay of execution in their battle against a winding-up order on Monday.

The City Reds face a court winding up order with debts of £600,000, an action started by sponsor Steur Gregsson but continued after its settlement by HM Revenue and Customs and two former players, Vinnie Anderson and Luke Patten.

Salford, who beat Championship side Swinton 52-12 in a pre-season friendly on Sunday, had to cancel an earlier game against Leigh as Veivers was unable to raise a team.

The City Reds tactician is hoping the crisis club can now secure an adjournment in their case to finalise a deal with a consortium and retain their Super League status.

"I cannot change what (Monday) brings, we will just wait and see. But what I am hoping for is very simple, I am very optimistic," he told the Daily Star.

"Things have been as difficult as you would expect but I have to give the players the credit they deserve. They have turned up at training in the right frame of mind and trained with intensity."
