WOLVERHAMPTON were left frustrated by a 49-41 defeat at Eastbourne on Thursday.

The Monmore men were looking good for a consolation point from the meeting but Eastbourne notched two successive 4-2 wins to deny them late on.

Freddie Lindgren was top scorer with 10+1 and former Monmore favourite David Howe made an impressive return to the side as a reserve guest in place of Ludvig Lindgren with 8+2.

Adam Skornicki started well with five-points from two rides before he tailed off and skipper Tai Woffinden suffered an exclusion.

Boss Peter Adams said: “A lot of the talk before the meeting was about us staying safe before our play-off match at Poole on Monday, but my experience is that if you start looking for trouble then you find it.

“We treated this meeting the same as any other as best we could, we went for the win and we came up short.

“It was a very good meeting, it could have gone either way and we travel back home disappointed. At least we came through it unscathed!

“David Howe was excellent, a lot of his points came from the back and I was very impressed with him. It was nice to see him back in Wolves colours.

“Now we turn our thoughts and attentions to Poole on Monday. We are not giving up, we go there in what is effectively a one-off meeting to decide who goes through to the final.”

EASTBOURNE: Cameron Woodward 12+2, Joonas Kylmakorpi 12+2, Matej Zagar 11, Simon Gustafsson 8+1, Lukas Dryml 5, Ricky Kling 1, Tomasz Jedrzejak R/R.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Freddie Lindgren 10+1, David Howe 8+2, Tai Woffinden 6, Nicolai Klindt 5, Adam Skornicki 5, Ty Proctor 4+1, Joe Haines 3+1.
