Freddie Lindgren bidding to continue fine form for Wolverhampton Wolves

Sport | Published:

Freddie Lindgren is bidding to continue his fantastic start to the season with another Wolverhampton victory at home to Rye House.

The Wolves skipper has been in sensational form in 2017 – he's unbeaten in two home matches and is joint leader of the World Championship after finishing runner-up at Saturday's Speedway Grand Prix opener in Slovenia.

Lindgren admits he is feeling as good as ever and is backing his side to start where they left off after an impressive 55-37 win over Rye House last week.

"It's been really good at home so far for the whole of the team," Lindgren said ahead of the SGB Premiership clash. "We've won all five of our home meetings and our new-look side showed what we're now capable of against Rye House last week.

"We just need to race how we did then and a win over King's Lynn would keep us right up there and would keep our run going.

"Personally I'm feeling as good as ever. I'm going into Monday on the back of a paid maximum and a full maximum too and I'm carrying momentum from my performance in Slovenia on Saturday so I'm really looking forward to it."

Wolves title winner Tai Woffinden is ninth in the fledgling World Championship standings.

Meanwhile, Cradley boss Will Pottinger has issued a rallying cry to his side ahead of their Bank Holiday clash with Lakeside at Monmore Green tonight. The Motor Market Heathens will take on the National League newcomers immediately after Wolves' fixture, at approximately 7.45pm.

Pottinger's side got their season off to a bright start but have suffered two straight defeats including Saturday's 56-31 reverse at Eastbourne.


Pottinger said: "It's been a tough couple of weeks for us, but we showed at the start of the season what we're capable of and we just need to iron out a few issues.

"It's important for us to get back to winning ways against Lakeside, and we'll hopefully improve upon our first meeting at Monmore Green a couple of weeks ago.

"Lakeside have some very capable riders so we're expecting another tough meeting, but we'll just go about our business and to bounce back from the last two meetings."

Cradley will welcome back No.1 Tom Perry after he missed Saturday's defeat at Eastbourne due to an SGB Championship meeting.
