WOLVERHAMPTON’S Speedway riders are chasing the double – starting next week.

The Monmore Green side face the first leg of their Play-off semi-final with Belle Vue in Manchester next Monday, September 18.

And on a rare Wednesday night home outing they take on Somerset 48-hours later in their Knockout Cup semi-final first leg – their next Monmore Green meeting with a clear week this week.

The return takes place at Highbridge on Friday September 22 before the return leg of their Play-off with Belle Vue on Monday September 25.

Skipper Fredrik Lindgren, who is also still in the race for the world title, said: “It’s an exciting time for everyone at the club and we’ll be looking to get through both semi-finals to have the chance of winning the league and cup double.”

Lindgren also represents the Parrys International Wolves this Saturday – ironically at Belle Vue – in the Premiership Riders’ Championship.

Thankfully Lindgren will be ready for action after a horrifying looking crash in Saturday’s Grand Prix in Germany when he was controversially excluded.

He said: “I missed the start completely and going down the back straight in last place all of a sudden the riders in front of me swung left fiercely.

“I reacted to the situation too late and rode into the rear of the rider in front of me and crashed heavily and was then disqualified from the re-start.

“In all the disappointment I am still very happy to walk away from this crash with my body intact without sustaining any injury.”
