Lindgren and Proctor in bad high-speed crash

WOLVERHAMPTON staged a remarkable recovery to snatch an Elite League point at Swindon - despite having two riders injured.

WOLVERHAMPTON staged a remarkable recovery to snatch an Elite League point at Swindon - despite having two riders injured.

Wolves were 18 points down with four heats to go, and had already lost star man Freddie Lindgren and Ty Proctor after a high-speed crash in Heat 5.

An 8-1 in Heat 12 brought them back into contention and they then took 5-1s in the last two races, the latter coming when Robins skipper Leigh Adams was disqualified for bringing down Tai Woffinden.

That left Swindon as 48-45 victors on the night, taking two points rather than three, and Wolves taking pride in adversity with less than a fortnight before they defend their title in the play-offs.

Boss Peter Adams said: “It was a bad smash and both Freddie and Ty were in trouble, there was no way they could have continued, they were knocked out cold.

“It’s one of those results where you feel really satisfied and hopefully there is nothing long term in terms of Freddie and Ty and their injuries.”
