RICKY Wells gave a stunning solo display but failed to prevent Wolverhampton from slipping to a 54-40 Elite League defeat at Belle Vue.

Califonian ace Wells was sensational at reserve but received little support from his colleagues – including Grand Prix star Freddie Lindgren – as the Parrys International Wolves became the first team to lose to the Manchester side this season.

Wells won three of his seven outings, including a rare appearance in Heat 15, as he romped to a 16+2 haul but only Robert Miskowiak joined him in Wolverhampton’s list of race winners.

Frustrated team boss Peter Adams said: “It was poor in almost every department apart from Ricky Wells who was sensational at reserve.

“I’ve said before if there is a better reserve in the Elite League right now I haven’t seen it.
“And it’s a good job he was with us because it would have been a debacle without him.

“We’re not going to offer any excuses, we’ve won at Belle Vue before but with this team we’re not going to win anything.”

BELLE VUE 54: Renat Gafurov 12+1, Craig Cook 9+1, Artur Mroczka 9, Rory Schlein 8+2, Charlei Gjedde 8+1, Ales Dryml 8+1, Patrick Hougaard R/R.

WOLVERHAMPTON 40: Ricky Wells 16+2, Freddie Lindgren 9, Ty Proctor 7, Robert Miskowiak 7, Pontus Aspgren 1, Lukasz Sowka 0, Tai Woffinden R/R.
