PARRYS International Wolves put up a resilient fight before eventually going down 50-43 against Coventry at Brandon.

Wolverhampton displayed a battling performance despite the absences of Fredrik Lindgren and Ricky Wells - yet they were unable to snatch an unlikely point following a nervy last heat decider.

And team boss Peter Adams was pleased to see his side looking back to normal after a dismal evening at Birmingham on Wednesday.

Said Adams: "It was frustrating not to get a point in the end, but I thought we put in a very good performance given the circumstances.

"It was a battling display from the boys, and we looked much more back to our normal selves."

The ever-dependable Tai Woffinden put in a strong performance at No.5 - yet it was Adam Skornicki who top scored with a typically battling display which included a double points win heat eight to force Wolves back into contention.

Swedish youngster Jacob Thorssell starred at reserve as he scored in every ride on his way to double figures - whilst his partner Ludvig Lindgren also made a useful contribution despite a mixed night.

Yet guests Rohan Tungate and Lewis Kerr struggled to make an impact whilst replacing Wells and Lindgren respectively as the visiting Wolves fell agonisingly short of what would have been an excellent point.

Coventry 50: Krzysztof Kasprzak 14, Kozza Smith 13+2, Grzegorz Zengota 7, Scott Nicholls 6, Stuart Robson 5+2, Aaron Summers 5+2, Michal Szczepaniak R/R
Wolverhampton 43: Adam Skornicki 13+1, Tai Woffinden 12, Jacob Thorssell 10+2, Ludvig Lindgren 6+1, Rohan Tungate 2, Lewis Kerr 0, Ty Proctor R/R
