Salford coach Phil Veivers criticised his side's decision-making after they crashed to a 38-4 home defeat to London Broncos.
The City Reds failed to build on last weekend's win over Hull KR and are now bottom of the Super League table.
Veivers said: "Even though we were 22-0 down at half-time I didn't think there was much between the sides.
"We conceded four tries to kicks but I told the boys at half-time we could still be in the game if we scored the first try.
"But our confidence slipped when we could not come up with a try. We made wrong decisions all night."
Australian duo Liam Foran and Vic Mauro made their debuts for Salford, just two days after arriving in the country.
Veivers added: "They will have been suffering jet lag but Liam showed some neat touches and Vic took some pulling down. There is a lot more to come from them and the side.
"It's a job in progress but I'm the worst loser in the world and we are finding it pretty tough at the moment."
Broncos coach Tony Rea paid tribute to Tony Clubb, who made his first appearance of the season after a groin injury.
Rea said: "Tony was a late call-up but put his hand up to play and is a real strong part of the Broncos. He is a terrific footballer and a dominant character in the middle.
"Defence is a strong attitude and we showed that as a team tonight. Our wingers responded well to our kicks but we have talent right across the field."
