Parrys International Wolves put in a battling display at Poole - but it was not enough to save them from a 52-38 defeat at the hands of the runaway league leaders.

Wolves performed admirably in the first half of the meeting - and after 9 heats they were still only 6 points behind and looked to have real chance to take a shock away point. However, the class of their opponents showed in the latter stages, with a 5-1 in heat 13 putting to bed Wolves' hopes.

Robert Miskowiak once again performed well - top scoring on 12 - whilst Ty Proctor earned his 3rd consecutive heat 15 appearance.

There were a number of problems for Wolves that cost them though. Number one Fredrik Lindgren experienced a rare off night on a slick Wimborne Road track, whilst Ricky Wells failed to beat an opponent until his final race.

Tai Woffinden also managed only one race win - and there are fresh concerns over his fitness after he popped his shoulder out in a heat 13 spill, leaving the stadium in some discomfort despite taking his place in the rerun.

After the meeting, captain Freddie Lindgren said: "I am really proud of the team, they put in a battling performance out there. I had a real nightmare meeting and I am not sure what went wrong. I have got to go back to the drawing board now.

"We have got a few days off because of the British Final next Monday, so I have some time to try and tweak my engines a bit and hopefully I will have some more speed when I get back."
