DEPLETED Wolverhampton went down 49-41 at the hands of runaway Elite League leaders Poole at Monmore on Monday.

Parrys International Wolves are badly missing key riders and it told in the middle part of the meeting as the Pirates took control.

Freddie Lindgren was top man for the Monmore side with 12+1 and guest rider Eddie Kennett, in for the injured Tai Woffinden, notched 11.

Said Lindgren: "It is disappointing, but Poole have been in very good form so far this season and they are still unbeaten.

"We are still very depleted at the moment, and it is only me and Ty Proctor left from the team that started the season, and it is hard."

Pirates raced into a 14 point lead between heats 9 and 12, and although Wolves restored some pride with a 4-2 in heat 13 and a maximum in the penultimate race of the night, it was too little too late, as the loyal home fans were left disappointed.

With GP star Chris Holder being defeated only once on his way to 14, and Chris Harris guesting for Darcy Ward in impressive style, it was always going to be an uphill task for the hosts - and in talented Aussie youngster Sam Masters they had strength in depth.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Fredrik Lindgren 12+1, Edward Kennett 11, Ty Proctor 8+1, Kenny Ingalls 5+1, Robert Miskowiak 4, Jacob Thorssell 1, Tom Perry 0, Lukasz Sowka R/R.

POOLE: Chris Holder 14, Sam Masters 10+2, Chris Harris 10, Ricky Kling 6+2, Dennis Andersson 4+3, Kyle Howarth 3, Kyle Newman 2+1.
