CHRIS Holder and Bjarne Pedersen stayed cool to seal Pirates’ first league win in 10 matches when they bagged a final-heat 4-2 over Krzysztof Kasprzak to clinch a 46-44 victory over Belle Vue.

The Aussie got away from the tapes in front of Wimborne Road track specialist KK and then rode superbly to peg him behind for four laps.

Pedersen also did a cracking job, comfortably coming home in third to grab the point that ensured Poole grabbed their first win since March.

In between, the Dorset side had drawn one league match, then lost a club record-equalling eight in a row as they fell to the bottom of the Elite League.

Pirates chief Matt Ford has confirmed changes will be made following their league clash at Swindon.

And it showed, with jobs on the line, as Joe Screen and Daniel Davidsson dug deep to produce nine and eight paid 10, respectively, to give solid backing to Holder, who plundered 14, and Pedersen, who bagged 10 paid 11.

Pirates: 1 Bjarne Pedersen 10+1, 2 Ales Dryml 2, 3 Joe Screen 9, 4 Daniel Davidsson 8+2, 5 Chris Holder 14, 6 Tomasz Piszcz 1, 7 Paul Hurry 2+1.
