WOLVERHAMPTON'S home Elite League fixtures were completed with a shock 48-42 defeat at the hands of Belle Vue.

And the club suffered two injury blows on an eventful night with Grand Prix leader Tai Woffinden suffering a leg knock and talented young Swede Jacob Thorssell a suspected broken arm.

The result saw Parrys International Wolves miss out on a return to the top of the table with away meetings to come at Belle Vue next Monday, September 2, and Peterborough seven days later.

Influential No.1 Freddie Lindgren (pictured) was disappointed with the outcome against an Aces side who have struggled until recently.

He said: "It's definitely not a good result for us, but losing Jacob early on was a massive blow for us.
"It was a bad night at the office really, but we have to make sure we put that behind us as soon as possible."

Lindgren led the home side with a strong display - Ricky Wells and Ludvig Lindgren also put in solid performances - with the latter forced to take seven rides having earlier lost his reserve partner.

But new signing Robert Miskowiak and his Polish compatriot Adam Skornicki both endured frustrating evenings as Wolves slipped to only their second home defeat of the season.

WOLVERHAMPTON 42: Freddie Lindgren 11+1, Tai Woffinden 10, Ludvig Lindgren 7+2, Ricky Wells 7+1, Adam Skornicki 3, Robert Miskowiak 2+1, Jacob Thorssell 2.
BELLE VUE 48: Craig Cook 13, Andrew Tully 12+1, Max Fricke 11+2, Kevin Wolbert 5+1, Ulrich Ostergaard 5+1, Matej Zagar 2+2, Magnus Zetterstrom 0.
