COVENTRY 44 WOLVES 46

Thursday May 20, 2010
WOLVERHAMPTON enjoyed one of their best nights of the season with a dramatic away victory in a thriller at Coventry.

Freddie Lindgren and Ty Proctor were the last-heat heroes for the Parrys International Wolves, who covered admirably for the absence of skipper Tai Woffinden due to a wrist injury.

And the performance of Nicolai Klindt was also worthy of high praise as the Danish youngster picked himself up from a high-speed spill at the start of Heat 3 to notch a double-figure score.

The lead changed hands frequently in a terrific contest, with Wolves' early four-point advantage wiped out by the home side who went 31-29 up with five heats to go.

But Lindgren and Proctor then combined for two stunning 5-1s in Heats 11 and 13, the second of which came against Coventry's top duo of Chris Harris and Rory Schlein.

Wolves couldn't relax, though, as they conceded a 5-1 in Heat 14 to go into the last race two points ahead, and when Harris out-gated Lindgren with Schlein third into the first bend, a draw looked on for the home side - but Proctor quickly cut back inside Schlein to move into the crucial third place the jubilant visitors required.

COVENTRY 44: Chris Harris 13, Richard Sweetman 9+1, Rory Schlein 7, Przemyslaw Pawlicki 5+1, Edward Kennett 4+1, Ben Barker 4, Filip Sitera 2+1.

WOLVES 46: Freddie Lindgren 16, Nicolai Klindt 12, Ty Proctor 9+4, Joe Screen 6+2, Joe Haines 3, Ludvig Lindgren 0, Tai Woffinden r/r.
