WOLVERHAMPTON preserved their proud unbeaten home record with a hard fought 50-42 win over Swindon at Monmore Green on Monday.

And Parrys International Wolves boss Peter Adams believes his side can start looking ahead to the play-offs and the defence of their title in September.

“It’s in our own hands now and we’ve been on a good run of form,” said Adams. “It’s ours to lose, but Swindon made us work really hard and when they come to us again in September I expect a thriller.”

Freddie Lindgren top scored again for the Monmore men with 13 and Adam Skornicki made a superb return from injury with 10. Leigh Adams scored 12 for the visitors.

Too many last places proved costly for Swindon. Wolves only failed to score in five races, and one of those was when Matt Wethers spun off when third in heat 7.

The Aussie was thrown from his machine, taking a heavy fall on the last turn. After lengthy treatment, he was taken from the track by ambulance with suspected concussion.

Heat 15 produced the race of the night. After a tight first turn, Lindgren powered to the front, unaware of the battle behind him. Skipper Tai Woffinden slipped under the Robins pairing on the back straight of lap two, but by the last lap he had been picked off by both visitors.

WOLVERHAMPTON 50: Freddie Lindgren 13, Adam Skornicki 10, Tai Woffinden 9, Ludvig Lindgren 7+2, Ty Proctor 5+3, Nicolai Klindt 3, Matt Wethers 3.

SWINDON 42: Leigh Adams 12, Grzegorz Zengota 8+2, Simon Stead 8, Morten Risager 6, Mads Korneliussen 6, Justin Sedgmen 2+1, Cory Gathercole 0.
