WOLVES 43 POOLE 47

Monday April 30, 2012
WOLVERHAMPTON suffered late heartbreak in a Monmore thriller on Monday.

Parrys International Wolves were beaten 47-43 by reigning champions Poole after a night of crashes, controversy and superb racing.

Nicolai Klindt, who had enjoyed an impressive meeting, crashed out of his last outing in Heat 12 and suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

After the track was flooded on Sunday, it served up some exciting racing for the loyal fans and the Sky Sports viewers.

Wolves took the lead for the first time in the meeting in Heat 8 and by the end of Heat 9 they were 29-25 up.

But former Wolves man Ludvig Lindgren was the Pirates hero in Heat 14 to partner Dennis Andersson for a 5-1 to level the scores going into a last heat decider.

And European Grand Prix winner Chris Holder came good when it mattered most to partner Darcy Ward for a matchwinning 5-1 over Freddie Lindgren and Tai Woffinden in Heat 15 – the first time they had been ahead since Heat 4!

Wolves boss Peter Adams said: “We didn’t deserve that, it was very cruel. It’s very frustrating and it’s one we let slip from our grasp. I’m very disappointed because our home form is vital.”

WOLVERHAMPTON 43: Freddie Lindgren 12, Nicolai Klindt 8, Tai Woffinden 8, Ricky Wells 8, Ty Proctor 4+1, Pontus Aspgren 2+1, Lukasz Sowka 1+1.

POOLE 47: Chris Holder 9+1, Darcy Ward 9+1, Ludvig Lindgren 8+2, Adrian Miedzinski 7+1, Dennis Andersson 6+2, Ricky Kling 6, Todd Kurtz 2+1.
