Elite League: Lakeside Hammers 55 Wolves 37

Lakeside Hammers reignited their Elite League play-off ambitions with a much-needed win over Wolverhampton at the Arena-Essex Raceway.

Swedish star Kim Nilsson produced a faultless, six-ride paid maximum, while skipper Andreas Jonsson also went unbeaten as the Vortex Hammers claimed a convincing victory.

British duo Lewis Bridger and Edward Kennett also roared to double figures to cover the absence of Richard Lawson, while Lewis Kerr recorded a race win in what was an excellent team display.

It was a perfect response from the Purfleet outfit after their shock home defeat against Poole a fortnight ago.

And co-promoter Jon Cook was in jubilant mood after comfortably dispatching the league leaders for the second time this season.

Cook said: “It was a fantastic performance from the team and a great way to recover from the home defeat

“All the plaudits go to Kim Nilsson for a truly immaculate paid maximum, although AJ, Edward and Lewis Bridger were absolutely superb as well.

“We’re just delighted with the team effort and the way the lads showed fantastic spirit to bounce back from that defeat against Poole last time out.

“It was just what we needed, and it sets us up nicely for our next home meeting against Swindon next Friday.”

Hammers: Kim Nilsson 17+1, Andreas Jonsson 11+1, Edward Kennett 10+2, Lewis Bridger 10+2, Lewis Kerr 7+1, Robert Mear 0, Richard Lawson r/r.

Wolves: Max Clegg 7+3, Peter Karlsson 7+1, Jacob Thorssell 7, Kyle Howarth 6+2, Fredrik Lindgren 5+1, Rory Schlein 5+1, Sam Masters r/r.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
