DANNY Ford is hopeful star Jack Holder will be available for Pirates' next meeting after a crash at Wimborne Road on Monday evening.

Holder careered into the air fence in heat one of Poole's 51-39 SGB Premiership victory over Wolves.

The Pirates number one limped off the track with a groin injury and sat out the rest of the meeting.

He is set to miss his meeting for Vastervik in Sweden tonight.

However, co-promoter Ford believes the Aussie charger could be available for next Monday's trip to Wolverhampton.

Ford said: “Jack certainly did the right thing withdrawing from the meeting on the doctor’s advice.

“He will miss his Swedish meeting as he is struggling to put any weight on his leg, but we’re hopeful he will be fit for our meeting at Wolverhampton on Monday.”

Pirates utilised injury rider replacement in Holder's absence and powered to a convincing triumph on home shale.

Nicolai Klindt led the way with a 17-point haul, while Josh Grajczonek (9+5), Brady Kurtz (10+2), Nico Covatti (7) and Richie Worrall (6+1) all contributed.

Ford said: “Nicolai was superb all night and backed up brilliantly by Brady, Josh, Nico and Richie.

“Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen had an off night by his standards but it was a fine team effort and I’m delighted with the performance, particularly because we were down to six men for the whole meeting.”
