BELLE VUE 54 WOLVES 39

Wednesday August 05, 2015
WOLVERHAMPTON suffered a 54-39 defeat against Belle Vue despite putting in a battling effort at Kirkmanshulme Lane.

The Parrys International Wolves have suffered a number of heavy defeats in recent weeks, but with Peter Karlsson and Tobiasz Musielak in fine form they put in a much more creditable display.

However, they were once again unable to earn as much as a consolation point for their efforts as they left their tenth successive away meeting empty handed.

Skipper Karlsson led Peter Adams’ side superbly as he enjoyed a welcome return to form in the No.5 spot.

He threatened to see them launch a late fightback as he took a tactical ride win in heat 10 before joining forces with Freddie Lindgren for their only 5-1 in heat 13.

Although it was not enough to see them end their miserable way form, Karlsson was keen to take plenty of positives from what was a determined effort in difficult conditions.

Karlsson said: “Of course we are disappointed we didn’t get anything, but we didn’t do too badly considering our away form recently.

“We’ve had some heavy defeats, but we pushed all the way until the end in tricky conditions and were in the mix for a point.

“It wasn’t a bad performance, there were some positives to take from it, and credit to the boys who really tried hard and gave it their best.”

Karlsson received superb support from all-action Pole Tobiasz Musielak, who raced to the best score of his Wolves career so far with a spectacular display.

Jacob Thorssell also battled to six points with a solid performance at No.2, but Lindgren struggled to build on his match-winning display against King’s Lynn on Monday on a tough night.

With Ricky Wells enduring a nightmare evening and reserve duo Lewis Blackbird and Josh Bates also struggling to match their Aces counterparts, Wolves were undone by the play-off chasing Aces.

They will nonetheless return to action in search of a second consecutive home win as Swindon visit Monmore Green on Monday (7.30).

BELLE VUE 54: Craig Cook 14, Matej Zagar 10+1, Steve Worrall 8+1, Stefan Nielsen 7+1, Max Fricke 6+1, Scott Nicholls 5+1, Josh Grajczonek 4+2.

WOLVERHAMPTON 39: Peter Karlsson 15, Tobiasz Musielak 10, Jacob Thorssell 6, Freddie Lindgren 4+2, Lewis Blackbird 2+1, Josh Bates 2, Ricky Wells 0.
