WOLVERHAMPTON suffered a 57-38 defeat at Eastbourne in their opening Elite League meeting of the season last night.

The Parrys International Wolves appeared to run out of steam in the latter stages of the Arlington clash with Eastbourne making full use of their home track advantage.

Freddie Lindgren was the top Wolves rider with 12 but that included six-points as a tactical ride and he could find no answer to fellow countryman Simon Gustafsson who notched his first five-ride maximum in his British career for the Eagles.

Peter Adams’ men had kept the scores close in the early part of the meeting but they were not helped by machinery trouble suffered by key rider Tai Woffinden, who took a tactical outing late on when borrowing Lidnrgen’s bike.

On the positive side there was an encouraging display from reserve Ricky Wells with 7+2.

EASTBOURNE 57: Simon Gustafsson 15, Bjarne Pedersen 12+1, Lewis Bridger 9+1, Joonas Kylmakorpi 8+1, Lukas Dryml 7+3, Cameron Woodward 6+2, Dawid Lampart 0.

WOLVES 38: Fredrik Lindgren 12, Peter Karlsson 8, Ricky Wells 7+2, Tai Woffinden 4, Ty Proctor 3, Ludvig Lindgren 2+1, Tyson Burmeister 2.
