WOLVERHAMPTON managed maximum points from their 50-43 Elite League win over Peterborough at Monmore on Monday - but only just.

They needed a last race 3-3 to see off a determined challenge from a gutsy Panthers side inspired by the brilliant Kenneth Bjerre who scored 17.

Fellow Grand Prix ace Freddie Lindgren was the top Wolves rider with 13, dropping his only points to the tiny Dane.

There was an excellent standard of racing in front of the Sky Sports cameras with Wolves all-time great Sam Ermolenko watching from the studio.

Heat 7 was a thriller with Wolves reserve Matt Wethers battling against Panthers duo Troy Batchelor and Rory Schlein. Wethers finished third on a 4-2 with Parrys International Wolves skipper Tai Woffinden winning the race.

That was typical of a hugely entertaining meeting which saw Bjerre win his tactical ride in Heat 11 to keep the scores close.

Boss Peter Adams said: "I thought it was a decent performance from the boys and we're pleased with the result.

"We were below par in some areas but we're working on that and it's nice to keep the unbeaten home record."

WOLVES: Freddie Lindgren 13, Tai Woffinden 10+2, Nicolai Klindt 10, Adam Skornicki 5+2, Matt Wethers 5+2, Ty Proctor 4+2, Ludvig Lindgren 3.

PETERBOROUGH: Kenneth Bjerre 17, Rory Schlein 9, Krzysztof Buczkowski 7+1, Troy Batchelor 6+1, Danny King 3, Matt Tressarieau 1, Craig Cook 0.
