WOLVERHAMPTON are back on top of the Premiership after a thrilling 48-42 win over Belle Vue on Monday.
The Aces led by eight points after eight races before Wolves levelled the scores with three to go as Nick Morris and Ryan Douglas got the better of Steve Worrall.
Douglas then teamed up with Luke Becker in Heat 14 to put the home side ahead for the first time, and Sam Masters defeated Dan Bewley in Heat 15 with Morris third – Bewley’s second place being enough to secure a league point for the Aces.
Morris (13+1) and Masters (13) led the way for Wolves with Bewley scoring 11 for the visitors.
Wolves boss Peter Adams said: “The team battled hard. It’s not the first time we’ve done that and came on strong in the second half of a meeting, and I think there’s a pattern developing here.
“Thankfully we were able to arrest the slide and put ourselves in a very good position at the halfway point of our season.
“Belle Vue were well worth a point and they contributed so much to a fabulous evening’s entertainment.”
Aces reserve Jye Etheridge (5+1) said: “We gave them a very good run early doors and we are disappointed to have missed out on the win, but that’s speedway and we can’t take away from the Wolves.
“We had a little bit of rain come over around halfway through the meeting and they seemed to adapt much more quickly to conditions after that than we did.
“Monmore can be a tricky track, but we still came away with a point which is obviously much better than coming away with nothing.”
