EASTBOURNE 61 WOLVES 32

Saturday August 18, 2012
WOLVERHAMPTON went down to a 61-32 Elite League defeat at Eastbourne on Saturday.


Parrys International Wolves were unable to improve upon their away record at Arlington as the play-off chasing Eagles gave a solid all-round display.

Czech rider Lukas Dryml returned to form for the home side with a paid maximum, and they were also well-served by former Wolves man Ludvig Lindgren who proved to be a useful guest at reserve.

Lindgren’s elder brother Freddie was Wolves’ top man by a distance, the Swede winning his second and third outings, the latter in Heat 11 being as a tactical ride – although with the scores at 44-16 it was damage limitation by then.

Nicolai Klindt and Pontus Aspgren continued their comebacks from injury, Klindt grabbing Wolves’ other race win in Heat 12, and Jacob Thorssell was visiting the tough Sussex venue for the first time.

Wolves will be desperate for a better night at the office on Monday when local rivals Birmingham provide the opposition in a big local derby at Monmore Green.

EASTBOURNE 61: Lukas Dryml 13+2, Timo Lahti 11+1, Simon Gustafsson 11, Lewis Bridger 8, Ludvig Lindgren 6+3, Cameron Woodward 6+2, Edward Kennett 6+1.

WOLVERHAMPTON 32: Freddie Lindgren 13+1, Ricky Wells 6, Tai Woffinden 5, Nicolai Klindt 4+1, Pontus Aspgren 3, Ty Proctor 1, Jacob Thorssell 0.
