TERRIFIC Tai Woffinden continued his blistering form with a full house in Wolverhampton’s tense 48-45 win over Birmingham at Monmore on Monday.

Woffinden went through the card with a 15-point haul in a derby clash which Parrys International Wolves seemed to have under control.

But a late rally from the Perry Barr side saw them take it to a last heat decider and it was Woffinden who was the home hero.

The meeting was rushed through because of rain falling constantly but the track held up remarkably well and both sides deserve great credit for getting a result.

Woffinden won the last two heats to seal the result for the Monmore men who breathed a huge sigh of relief and remain on course to preserve an impressive record of just one home league defeat in three years.

Ty Proctor battled through the pain barrier after a weekend crash at Eastbourne – including a brilliant third-to-first swoop in Heat 8 – to score two wins in his three outings.

And even though youngster Joe Haines failed to score, he was well and truly on the pace with some determined racing.

Said Proctor: “It’s very uncomfortable, the back of my leg is black and blue and it’s tough.

“I can hardly bend my left leg as I would like but it’s a long winter and I want to race as much as possible.”

WOLVERHAMPTON: Tai Woffinden 15, Freddie Lindgren 9+1, Peter Karlsson 8, Ludvig Lindgren 7, Ty Proctor 6, Ricky Wells 3+1, Joe Haines 0.

BIRMINGHAM: Danny King 12, Scott Nicholls 10+2, Daniel Nermark 9+1, Claus Vissing 5+3, Ales Dryml 5, Ulrich Ostergaard 2+2, Ben Barker 2.
