WOLVERHAMPTON slipped to a 57-36 defeat at fellow title hopefuls Peterborough on Friday.

The Monmore men were without both doubling-up reserves Joe Haines and Chris Kerr but the Panthers were worthy winners with a solid all-round display at the East of England Showground.

The scoreline could have been much worse for the Parrys International Wolves but for a brilliant 8-1 in Heat 11 when Freddie Lindgren – on a tactical ride for double points – partnered Ty Proctor.

Kenneth Bjerre, who leads the World Championship after two Grand Prix rounds, continued his fairytale season with 16+2 points for the Panthers.

The sides meet again at Wolverhampton’s Monmore Green Stadium on Monday next, May17, when new signing Matthew Wethers makes his debut.

Top scorer Lindgren said: “Peterborough is always a tough place to visit and it’s a disappointing result, so we just have to put it right at home on Monday.”

PETERBOROUGH: Kenneth Bjerr 16+2, Krzysztof Buczkowski 15+1, Troy Batchelor 9+1, Lewis Bridger 8, Craig Cook 6, Ales Dryml 3, Niels Kristian Iversen R/R.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Freddie Lindgren 15, Tai Woffinden 7+2, Nicolai Klindt 6, Ty Proctor 5+1, Ludvig Lindgren 3, Richard Lawson 0, Joe Screen 0.
