WOLVERHAMPTON'S unbeaten home run continued with an impressive 49-41 win over Ipswich.

The Parrys International Wolves made it four out of four in the Sports Insure Premiership at Monmore Green on another night of spectacular Speedway in the Black Country.

The hosts knew a good start would be of high importance - and they found themselves six points ahead after two races when Sam Masters and Steve Worrall combined for a 4-2 in the opener before Zach Cook and Leon Flint struck a 5-1 in Heat Two.

Four 3-3s in the next five races followed before the Wolves restored their six point lead in Heat Eight when Worrall and Flint delivered a second 4-2 of the night.

That enabled the visitors to introduce No.1 Jason Doyle as a tactical substitute in Heat Nine alongside Emil Sayfutdinov - and they secured their first 5-1 of the fixture to move within two points.

Masters and Worrall came up with the perfect, instant response though as they raced to yet another maximum together in the tenth.

Ipswich won the next two races and with the Witches renowned for finishing strongly this term and just four points between the teams, you could sense the tension on the terraces.

But an absolutely enthralling Heat 13 saw Masters and Rory Schlein outdo Doyle and Sayfutdinov as the Wolves took a huge step towards victory with their third 5-1 of the night.

That was quickly followed by a fourth when Ryan Douglas and Zach Cook fired home another as the hosts sealed the two league points with a race to spare.

Masters, Schlein, Doyle and Sayfutdinov then did battle once more in Heat 15 - but on this occasion it was the Witches' spearhead who came out with a maximum from a fine final race in a gripping league contest.

The Parrys International Wolves are back in action for their traditional Bank Holiday double against Belle Vue next Monday (May 29).

They travel to Manchester at 12 noon before heading back to Monmore Green for an 8pm start in their home leg as the Club celebrate their 95th Anniversary.
