WOLVES 48 COVENTRY 42

Monday June 27, 2011
WOLVERHAMPTON edged out reigning champions Coventry 48-42 in an Elite League thriller at Monmore on Monday.

The Parrys International Wolves were pushed all the way by their neighbours on a night of good racing and a close scoreline which saw the home side claim two league points and Coventry one.

Talented Polish youngster Przemyslaw Pawlicki was the last heat hero for the visitors as he beat home favourite Freddie Lindgren for a vital win and with Eddie Kennett third the 4-2 handed the Bees a point.

That was the only point Lindgren dropped. He’d slipped past Emil Sayfutdinov in heat 1, exchanged passes with Kennett in a thrilling last lap of heat 6, and repeated the feat in heat 13, before grinding to a halt as he crossed the line.

Wolverhampton Boss Peter Adams said: “I’m very pleased to claim the win against a full strength Coventry side because they are very powerful.

“What particularly pleased me was the fact that our reserves, Ricky Wells and Tyson Burmeister, contributed 14+2 between them which was decisive.

“But it was a tremendous match which could have gone either way and Coventry played their part and probably deserved a point.”

WOLVERHAMPTON 48: Freddie Lindgren 14, Ricky Wells 11+1, Tai Woffinden 9+1, Peter Karlsson 7+1, Ludvig Lindgren 3+1, Tyson Burmiester 3+1, Ty Proctor 1.

COVENTRY 42: Peter Kildemand 11+1, Przemyslaw Pawlicki 11, Edward Kennett 8, Emil Sayfutdinov 5+1, Ryan Fisher 4+1, Kenni Larsen 3+2, Simon Lambert 0.
