WOLVES 47 COVENTRY 43

Monday March 15, 2010
DASHING Dane Nicolai Klindt was top man for Wolves in their 47-43 win over Coventry in a breathtaking Speedway season opener at Monmore on Monday night.

Klindt, who is highly rated by his national bosses, won his last two rides in a superb 9+1 haul to help the reigning Sky Sports Elite League champions secure a welcome success with the return at Brandon on Friday.

Joe Screen made an impressive debut – 16-years after he came within a whisker of joining the club – with 9-points.

But the fans were the real winners on a night of spectacular racing from both teams with fans enjoying great value for money.

Controversy erupted in Heat 6 when Freddie Lindgren made a daring dive under Bees ace Eddie Kennett who went crashing towards the airfence at high speed. The Swede was rightly excluded by referee Barbara Horley who took what seemed like an eternity to make her decision.

Wolves threatened to open up a comfortable lead and force new Bees boss Alun Rossiter into his first tactical move for the club, but his riders kept plugging away with skipper Chris Harris in magnificent form.

Wolves star Klindt said: “I realise this is a big season for me and I have to do well. I’m trying new frames on my bikes and I feel really confident about the coming months.”
Parrys International Wolves face Lakeside in the first leg of the Elite Shield next Monday at Monmore.

WOLVES: Nicolai Klindt 9+1, Joe Screen 9, Fredrik Lindgren 8, Ty Proctor 7+2, Tai Woffinden 7+1, Ludvig Lindgren 4+3, Joe Haines 3.
COVENTRY: Chris Harris 14, Rory Schlein 9, Edward Kennett 9, Josh Auty 3+1, Ben Barker 3, Filip Sitera 3, Christian Hefenbrock 2+1.
