IPSWICH skipper Steve Johnston paid tribute to Piotr Swiderski, as the elated Witches won on the road for the second time in three days.
Johnston, who had to withdraw from the meeting because of a knock he took in heat 10, watched on as the Witches' main Pole came up with a match-winning heat 14 ride.
“I was going to take my last ride, but I started seeing stars and it was best I pulled out,” Johnston said.
“I told Piotr to go out and win the thing and he did just that. What a hero.” Witches team manager Pete Simmons said: “We were running out of bikes at the start of the meeting with Chris Schramm having all sorts of problems. But we have come good. That's five straight wins, it would be nice to go to Poole and make it six.”
Wolves boss Peter Adams said: “I said when we were eight up it wasn't all over. Credit to Ipswich, they have the luxury of a top rider at reserve.
