WOLVERHAMPTON gained revenge over rivals Birmingham with a hard fought 51-39 in front of a bumper Monmore crowd on Monday.

The result, together with Swindon's win over King's Lynn, puts three teams on 48-points and looking good for the play-offs.

And although Tai Woffinden deserves the plaudits for his brilliant unbeaten 14+1 score, Parrys International Wolves chief Peter Adams was keen to heap praise on reserve Jacob Thorssell (pictured) who matched the score of the current world number two.

Said Adams: "I don't normally single riders out but Jacob was brilliant, to score like that was a major factor in us gaining all three points.

"It was a fabulous speedway meeting and the three points go a long way towards us securing a place in the play-offs."

Birmingham made the better start and were 8-4 up after two outings, but Wolves refused to press the panic button and improved as the meeting progressed.

There was the usual offering of exciting racing for the fans to enjoy, including a big contingent who had made the short trip across from Perry Barr.

The key moment was in Heat 10 when Freddie Lindgren and Thorssell combined for a maximum to open up a six-point gap and they never looked back.

Birmingham still had a slight chance to pinch a consolation point in Heat 15 but they needed a maximum and Woffinden won a spectacular race to hand the Monmore men all three points.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Tai Woffinden 14+1, Jacob Thorssell 14+1, Adam Skornicki 9, Freddie Lindgren 8+1, Ricky Wells 6+2, Ludvig Lindgren 0, Ty Proctor R/R.
BIRMINGHAM: Martin Smolinski 10, Jason Doyle 9+1, Nicolai Klindt 6, Chris Harris 5+3, Danny King 3+1, Ben Barker 3+1, Josh Auty 3.
