What Wolves speedway team manager Peter Adams told the club after their last home play-off defeat.

Wolverhampton speedway team manager Peter Adams has praised and apologized to the club’s devoted fans following their latest home play-off defeat. Sheffield defeated the Parrys International Wolves 50-40 in their sixth consecutive play-off match at Monmore Green, dating back to the 2017 Grand Final.

The hosts got off to a good start and found themselves four up after four races.

But, after winning three of their first three races, the Monmore men won only one more race in the final 11 – and Adams conceded it ‘just wasn’t good enough’.

“When you look at the programme, they produced 11 race winners out of the 15 heats and no matter who you are, you can’t cope with that,” he stated. “In a match like this, you have to produce a preponderance of heat winners, and we couldn’t do it.”

“You need a good start, a good middle, and a good finish; the start wasn’t bad, but the rest just wasn’t up to par.”

“The fans have been absolutely fantastic, not just this season but year after year.”

“They were tremendous again and Porky (Ian Jones – centre green presenter) whipped them into a bit of a frenzy, it’s just a great shame that we couldn’t produce the result the were looking for.”

The second leg takes place tomorrow night (7.30pm) at Sheffield’s Owlerton Stadium.
