Poole visited Wolverhampton yesterday in an attempt to follow up on their last meeting.
Poole knew that the away meeting against Wolves would be tough, and so it did. It was back and forth during the meeting. Always were the two team within a couple of points from each other.
Poole started out good, but Wolves fought back. However, in the end Poole brought themselves in a good position. In the very last heat Wolves needed a 5-1 heat win to draw the meeting, but Poole managed to narrow Wolves’ heat advantage to a 4-2, which meant they won the meeting by 44-46. Nicolai contributed with paid 9 points.
“Another great team performance from the mighty Pirates. Skipper Joshua stepped up to the plate and really delivered in heat 15 when I had bike issues, to seal the win. I had a good and steady night with points in all of my heats, so pretty happy personally. It was great to race at Wolverhampton again where it all started 10 years ago.”
Poole will race at home against Belle Vue on Thursday.
