WOLVERHAMPTON picked up their first Elite League win of the season in a hard fought clash with Eastbourne at Monmore.

The 51-41 scoreline was enough to hand the Parrys International Wolves all three points on offer and dyanamic duo Tai Woffinden (14+1) and Freddie Lindgren (11+1) were unbeaten by an opposing rider.

Lindgren, however, was involved in a spectacular crash in the last race and was unable to take his place in the rerun thanks to an arm injury.

Boss Peter Adams said: “It was a nasty crash and Freddie has hurt his arm but we expect him to be OK. He looked a bit uncomfortable afterwards and couldn’t ride in the rerun.

”We’re delighted to pick up the win, it’s a nice feeling and there are a lot of plus points to come out of it. It gives us something to build on.

“I don’t like singling riders out, but I was particularly pleased with Thomas Jorgensen who came in for Ricky Wells and scored well.”

For the record, Wolves rode under protest at the visitors’ late switch of riding order, with guest Danny King moved to number three, and rider replacement being used for Simon Gustafsson at number one.

WOLVERHAMPTON 51: Tai Woffinden 14+1, Freddie Lindgren 11+1, Nicolai Kilndt 9+2, Ty Proctor 9, Thomas Jorgensen 8, Lukasz Sowka 0, Pontus Aspgren R/R.

EASTBOURNE 41: Danny King 11+1, Timo Lahti 8+1, Lewis Bridger 7, Cameron Woodward 6+3, Lukasz Dryml 5+2, Denis Gizatullin 4+2, Simon Gustafsson R/R.
