WOLVERHAMPTON wrapped up their regular Elite League programme with a 55-38 defeat at Peterborough on Monday.

Aiming to bag a victory as they prepare for the play-offs, the Parrys International Wolves were unable to take at least a point on the road for only the fourth time this season against an in-form Panthers side.

The meeting was expected to be crucial in the play-off race, but Peterborough learnt earlier today that their top four hopes were over after King's Lynn won an appeal to have their victory over them earlier in the season reinstated.

Despite their earlier disappointment, the home side continued their strong form to outclass the battling Wolves.

Wolves team boss Peter Adams was not too concerned by his sides performance, admitting he was simply happy to avoid injuries ahead of the business end of the season.

Said Adams: "The main concern at this stage of the season is just to get everyone away from these meetings in one piece so it was job done in that respect.

"There were some negative points and some positive points, but the important thing is we are all fit and raring to go for the play-offs.

"Every time we come to Peterborough we seem to do either really well or really badly but this meeting was a bit in the middle really."

Star man Tai Woffinden (PICTURED) led the charge impeccably for the visitors - notching 14+1 including a tactical ride win to keep their hopes of a point alive.

Yet he received minimal support - with Nicolai Klindt the only other rider to make double figures as he staked his claim for further guest bookings in the play-offs with a strong showing.

Heat leader duo Fredrik Lindgren and Adam Skornicki both suffered frustrating evenings whilst Ricky Wells battled hard for little reward after a fast heat one win.

With Robert Miskowiak and Ludvig Lindgren also failing to score Wolves lacked the firepower to take at least a point on a difficult night.

PETERBOROUGH 55: Krzysztof Buczkowski 14+1, Patrick Hougaard 9, Joonas Kylmakorpi 9, Kenneth Bjerre 7+1, Norbert Kosciuch 7, Ryan Fisher 5+1, Dakota North 4+1.
WOLVERHAMPTON 38: Tai Woffinden 14+1, Nicolai Klindt 10, Ricky Wells 5, Freddie Lindgren 5, Adam Skornicki 4, Robert Miskowiak 0, Ludvig Lindgren 0.
