LEICESTER 53 WOLVES 37

Saturday May 30, 2015
PARRYS International Wolves were unable to add any points to their Elite League tally as they slipped to a 53-37 loss at Leicester.

The defeat was the Wolves' fourth consecutive loss on their travels on a tough and frustrating night against their Midland rivals.

Promoter Chris Van Straaten said: "It's been hugely disappointing tonight. You only have to look at the programme and see that your No.1 has only picked up two points - the chances are you're going to have struggled.

"That's no overall criticism of Freddie (Lindgren) though because all riders have off nights. He always gives it his best, he always works hard and he just can't put his finger on what went wrong for him tonight.

"This is a relentless format and if you've already got one or two riders missing and one or two others have off nights then your hands are always going to be tied.

"It is concerning but we have to put tonight behind us; there were some encouraging signs here and there - especially from Peter (Karlsson).

"We've got a chance to bounce back quickly against Swindon on Monday and we'll be looking for another home win to take us into the World Cup break."

Guest Jason Garrity continued his fine form with a classy 13 point haul to top-score from reserve.

Peter Karlsson also impressed with a usual reliable performance from the Wolves skipper.

Ricky Wells and Jacob Thorssell both suffered very mixed nights with some impressive looking rides but both would have been targeting much bigger points.

Freddie Lindgren endured a night to forget at No.1 whilst young guest reserve Max Clegg looked on the pace in his three rides.

LEICESTER 53: Jason Doyle 14+1, Szymon Wozniak 10+2, Nick Morris 8+1, Sam Masters 6, Simon Lambert 5+1, Richard Lawson, 5, Stevie Worrall 5
