WOLVES 51 SWINDON 41

Monday June 30, 2014
PARRYS International Wolves bounced back from their first home loss of the season in perfect fashion with a hard-fought 51-41 win over Swindon at Monmore Green.

Having suffered a disappointing defeat against against high-flying King's Lynn last week, Wolverhampton got back to winning ways with a determined performance.

It was a much-needed win for Peter Adams' men to get their play-off push back on track - and Adams was delighted to see his side claim all three points.

He said: "Obviously we were pleased to get back to winning ways and pick up all three points.

"Swindon are a tough side but I think they were let down in one or two positions, and we were able to capitalise on that which was good.

"It keeps us right on the tails of the pacesetters in the top four and that's where we want to be, ready to pounce at the finish."

Skipper Tai Woffinden led the hosts in impeccable fashion with a spectacular paid maximum, whilst flying Pole Piotr Pawlicki also stormed to four race wins to form a formidable spearhead for the Monmore men.

The heat-leader pair combined for a crucial 5-1 in heat 13 to all but secure all three points for their side after the duo had powered Wolves to victory with excellent showings.

Whilst Woffinden and Pawlicki accounted for seven race wins, Ty Proctor, Ricky Wells and Jacob Thorssell all chipped in with useful performances in the main body of the side.

With Joe Jacobs and Tom Perry also adding creditable scores at reserve Wolves were able to emerge victorious thanks to a strong all-around team display.

WOLVERHAMPTON 51: Tai Woffinden 13+2, Piotr Pawlicki 13, Jacob Thorssell 7, Ty Proctor 6+1, Ricky Wells 5, Joe Jacobs 4+1, Tom Perry 3+1.

SWINDON 41: Steve Worrall 11+2, Peter Kildemand 9+1, Troy Batchelor 8+2, Simon Gustafsson 6+1, Nick Morris 4, Dakota North 2, Nathan Greaves 1.

Elite League points: Wolverhampton 3 Swindon 0.
