WOLVERHAMPTON pulled off an amazing bonus point after a courageous 48-45 Elite League defeat at Swindon on Thursday.

Reserve Ludvig Lindgren romped to a stunning 13+3 haul from a busy night of racing as he took seven rides to cover for injured brother Freddie and Australian ace Ty Proctor.

Skipper Tai Woffinden notched three wins in his 12-point haul as the Parrys International Wolves staged a late recovery, including a Heat 15 maximum from Woffinden and Nicolai Klindt.

Adam Skornicki also revived memories of last October’s play-off glory in Wiltshire with a brilliant tactical ride.

Peter Adams’ men were up against it from the moment both Freddie Lindgren, one of the top riders in the world on current form, and talented Aussie Proctor pulled out. Both were knocked out after a dramatic high-speed crash in Heat 5 which handed Swindon a 5-1.

Said Adams: “It was a bad smash and both Freddie and Ty were in trouble, there was no way they could have continued, they were knocked out cold.

“Obviously they are going to be feeling rough and we need to take a look at them with the next few days in mind.

“It was a brilliant result, Ludvig was sensational – and we would have won if I had been able to use Woffy (Tai Woffinden) for double points in Heat 14, but when Leigh Adams was excluded in 13 that ruled it out.

“It’s one of those results where you feel really satisfied and hopefully there is nothing long term in terms of Freddie and Ty and their injuries.”

SWINDON: Simon Stead 11, Grzegorz Zengota 10+1, Leigh Adams 9, Mads Korneliessen 7+2, Justin Sedgmen 6+2, Maciek Janowski 4, Morton Risager 1+1.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Ludvig Lindgren 13+3, Tai Woffinden 12, Adam Skornicki 7+1, Nicolai Klindt 7+1, Joe Haines 2+1, Ty Proctor 2+1, Freddie Lindgren 2.
