WOLVERHAMPTON withheld a late Peterborough fightback to take all three Elite League points with a 51-43 victory at Monmore Green.

After racing into a 15 point lead after nine race, Parrys International Wolves looked set for a comfortable win against a struggling Panthers.

Yet a 5-1 from the visitors in Heat 13 reduced the deficit to eight and set up a nervy finale - but Wolves held on for a narrow win thanks to a last race win from skipper Fredrik Lindgren.

And Lindgren was pleased to escape with maximum points - whilst he also praised Tai Woffinden for riding through the pain barrier to contribute 6+2 before withdrawing after three rides.

He said: "I'm pleased with the performance from the team, and Tai did a really good thing for the team trying his hardest to ride three heats even though he was in a lot of pain.

"Everyone had some moment of brilliance that contributed to the win, and I was glad I didn't let the team down and won heats to get us all three points."

Despite not enjoying his best evening, Lindgren still bagged a useful 11+1 from the No.1 position, whilst Adam Skornicki continued his good form with 10+2.

Ricky Wells and Ludvig Lindgren also made solid contributions - yet it was youngster Jacob Thorssell who proved the star man with a career-best 11+1 from reserve.

WOLVERHAMPTON 51: Freddie Lindgren 11+1, Jacob Thorssell 11+1, Adam Skornicki 10+2, Ricky Wells 7+1, Ludvig Lindgren 6+2, Tai Woffinden 6+1, Ty Proctor R/R.

PETERBOROUGH 43: Kenneth Bjerre 19, Ryan Fisher 11, Kenni Larsen 10+2, Patrick Hougaard 2+1, Dakota North 1, Nicolai Klindt 0, Linus Sundstrom R/R.
