Poole Pirates equalled a 57-year-old club record when they beat Peterborough Panthers 50-39 at home on Wednesday.

The Pirates shook off a resilient Panthers' side, minus rider Michael Jepson Jensen because of illness, to register their 10th successive win.

At the halfway stage, only three points had separated the two sides.

The move of the night came in heat 9 when early backmarker Darcy Ward slipped through the traffic for Poole to produce a distance victory.
