WOLVERHAMPTON let a handy lead slip as they crashed to a 47-42 defeat at home to neighbours Coventry on Monday.

Parrys International Wolves suffered their sixth home reversal of the season in front of a big crowd on a baking hot night.

They raced into an early lead, with 5-1s in heats 1 and 3 helping them to build up an eight-point advantage.

But a number of mistakes allowed Coventry to move into a one-point lead after 12 heats, before Kenni Larsen and guest Cameron Heeps secured the win for the visitors.

Number one Fredrik Lindgren led the way well with 12 points, whilst Ty Proctor also added an excellent 8+1. However, bike problems for Tai Woffinden and a total of four exclusions came back to haunt Wolves, as they tailed off in the latter stages after their bright start.

Robert Miskowiak (7) and Ricky Wells (5+2) both scored solidly in the middle order, but with neither reserve scoring after heat 2, it left Wolves short.

Said Woffinden: “It’s bitterly disappointing to lose against your local rivals but you can’t win them all I suppose. I know my own score should have been better and it’s a bad result for us.”

WOLVERHAMPTON 42: Freddie Lindgren 12, Ty Proctor 8+1, Robert Miskowiak 7, Tai Woffinden 7, Ricky Wells 5+2, Matej Kus 2, Jacob Thorssell 1+1.

COVENTRY 47: Kenni Larsen 10, Scott Nicholls 9+2, Chris Harris 8+1, Adam Roynon 6+2, Cameron Heeps 6+1, Eddie Kennett 4, Aaron Summers 4.
