FOR Pirates fans starved of speedway, this was worth the wait.

Having not seen their team at Wimborne Road for almost a month, the Poole supporters were treated to a resounding home win – and one that never looked in doubt.

Despite not turning a wheel in anger in the Elite League since their victory over Coventry on May 9, the Dorset outfit clicked into gear almost immediately.

This latest display – both professional and accomplished – fired another warning to their title rivals with a 56-36 victory over Wolves.

Having received news of former Pirates star Leigh Adams’s crash in Australia, the celebrations afterwards were understandably low key among a Poole side containing four of the speedway legend’s compatriots.

Pirates sent their best wishes to Adams, who reportedly sustained serious back injuries while training for an off-road desert race.

Speaking after starring in the victory over Wolverhampton Wolves, both Chris Holder and Davey Watt admitted they had found it difficult to ride in the meeting.

That made the success all the more admirable, as they comfortably saw off Wolves to continue their imperious form on home territory.

Pirates: 1 Chris Holder 10, 2 Dennis Andersson 7+2, 3 Davey Watt 10+1, 4 Jason Doyle 7+1, 5 Darcy Ward 12+1, 6 Christian Hefenbrock 1, 7 Renat Gafurov 9+2.
