DUDLEY Heathens have gone level with Newport at the top of the National Speedway League table after clinching a bonus point from their 50-45 defeat at Bournemouth on Wednesday.
The former Cradley club, who share their home meetings between Wolverhampton and Birmingham, looked destined for a heavy defeat but a late rally salvaged a valuable point in their bid to book a play-off place.
Aussie ace Jake Anderson saved his best form of the season for the last two races in his 14-point haul which included a tactical ride and he partnered skipper Lee Smart for a stunning 5-1 maximum in the last race to send the travelling and loyal Heathens fans home happy.
Boss Will Pottinger said: "The first thing I need to say is to thank our fans. We must have had well over 100 people down here, many of whom stayed over after the rain-off at the Isle of Wight on Tuesday. I can't thank them enough, they made a load of noise by the starting gate.
"Even though we lost it feels like we won in many ways. We had a couple of riders who struggled, but they have the chance to put it right in our home meeting at Wolves on Tuesday against Rye House - we're looking forward to that one. We could have lost this by a big margin on a slick track which suited Bournemouth, but we dug deep and showed a lot of character. I'm satisfied with our efforts."
Heathens will be gunning for maximum points when they face Rye House at Monmore Green, Wolverhampton, next Tuesday, April 17 (7.30).

DUDLEY Heathens have gone top of the National Speedway League table in their debut season after a storming 67-26 win over Rye House at Wolverhampton.
Heathens, backed again by another bumper following, were dominant from start to finish with skipper Lee Smart unbeaten by an opposing rider on 13+2.
Barrie Evans was impressive with 10+1 on his home debut for the former Cradley club, dropping just a point in his four rides.
Australian ace Micky Dyer had his best night in Heathens colours so far with 12+1 and he earnt a call-up into the last race as a reward for his efforts.
Boss Will Pottinger said: "We were awesome right from the first race and it's a lovely feeling to be top of the league. We're looking good for the play-offs now but we have to keep our feet on the ground.
"I know the entertainment isn't as good when one team wins a meeting like that but our fans loved seeing the boys dominate. Hopefully we can keep on improving now we're into the latter stages of the league season."
Heathens are next in action next Wednesday, August 25, when they face Weymouth Wildcats at Birmingham's Perry Barr Stadium in more National League action.

DUDLEY Heathens turned up the heat on the National League leaders with a stunning 58-33 win over Newport at Wolverhampton on Tuesday.
Skipper Lee Smart was unbeaten with a brilliant 11+1 score - but the top Heathen was 16-year-old local lad Ashley Morris who notched 11+2 including a dramatic Heat 15 win.
The former Cradley club remain third in the table with the play-offs fast approaching - and they're in a great position to challenge for top spot with a trip to the Isle of Wight coming up on Thursday.
Morris was involved in some spectacular racing, using his increasing experience of the Monmore Green track to pass riders superbly.
And fellow youngster Tom Perry, in his first season as a Speedway rider, was at his brilliant best when he went from third to first to beat Luke Priest and tactical rider Todd Kurtz early on.
Heathens boss Will Pottinger said: "This is a much better result than we expected, we rode our socks off and everyone enjoyed themselves out there.
"Newport are a fine team and we have done a good job on them. Now we need to keep this form going in the remaining weeks of the season."

DUDLEY Heathens pulled off a sensational last-gasp 49-44 win at the Isle of Wight on Thursday to go second in the National League.
Aussie ace Jake Anderson had one of his best nights of the season with a 13-point score and he was the last heat hero alongside skipper Lee Smart who bagged 14+2.
The former Cradley club suffered a nightmare start when they lost key reserve Richard Franklin with concussion after a crash in the second race. Ashley Morris, Franklin’s reserve colleague, deserves wonderful credit for his 9+3 from seven outings.
They found themselves 17-7 down but Smart won a tactical ride in Heat 5 to inspire a 7-2 to reduce the deficit to 19-14.
But Heathens’ misfortune struck again when Tom Perry was penalised with a 15-metre handicap for touching the tapes, but he still managed third place with Anderson nothing a fine win and Will Pottinger’s men were just 24-21 down.
Heathens managed to take the lead for the first time in the meeting with a maximum 5-1 from Smart and Micky Dyer in Heat 11.
It looked like Heathens could take a major grip on the match in Heat 13 as Smart and Barrie Evans were set for a maximum before Evans slipped – and just one-point split the sides with two heats remaining.
Heathens held a slender one-point lead going into the last race after Anderson’s Heat 14 win – and he partnered Smart in the all-important last race decider.
At the second attempt to run the race, Anderson and Smart combined to revive memories of the great Billy Hamill and Greg Hancock partnership which won many meetings for the Heathens.
Jubilant boss Will Pottinger said: “This was typical of our season, we had to dig deep and show great character on a track many of our boys had never seen before.
“We’re on the ferry going home and we’re buzzing. It’s been a great night and we just have to keep this momentum going for the rest of the season.

“Rich (Franklin) was taken away by ambulance as a precaution but he should be fine for next Wednesday when we face Plymouth at Birmingham.”

DUDLEY Heathens went top of Speedway's National League with a hard fought 54-41 win over Plymouth at Birmingham's Perry Barr track on Wednesday.
The former Cradley club, who are looking for a new home in the area, warmed up for their Knockout Cup Semi-final clash with Buxton at Wolves next Tuesday with a solid all-round effort.
Once again there was some spectacular racing on show with Tom Perry and Richard Franklin involved in most of the entertainment on a well prepared Birmingham circuit,
Franklin, who was only passed fit on the morning of the meeting, top scored with 10+3 from his five rides and Jake Anderson (10+2) and Perry (10+1) were in fine form.
Reserve Ashley Morris had an unlucky night with two nasty spills and skipper Lee Smart suffered mechanical gremlins, as did recent signing Barrie Evans.
Boss Will Pottinger said: "It's fair to say nobody really wants to face us in the play-offs because we are an in-form team, I was really pleased with that display.
"We need to carry this form forward to Wolverhampton on Tuesday in the Cup Semi-Final because if we are to make progress and reach the final we will need a useful lead from that. Buxton are the team to beat right now in my view."

DUDLEY Heathens are set to welcome fans' favourite Jon Armstrong back to the side after their 47-43 Knockout Cup semi-final first leg defeat by Buxton at Wolverhampton on Tuesday.
Armstrong has been out for six-weeks after suffering a broken arm but was given the all-clear to start training last weekend.
Now he could be set for a dramatic recall to the Heathens side for the second leg in Derbyshire on Sunday on a track he knows well.
The former Cradley club were outclassed from the gate on a dramatic night which saw Aussie ace Micky Dyer arrive just in time for his opening ride and Buxton reserve Lewis Dallaway ruled out with a neck injury after a crash in his opening ride. Thankfully he was released from hospital later in the evening and is hoping to ride on Sunday.
Dyer was the top man for the Heathens with 12 and he received solid support from Tom Perry and Ashley Morris, both local youngsters, with 9-points each.
Heathens boss Will Pottinger said: "This is obviously a massive disappointment for us, but we will go to Buxton on Sunday and give it everything we have got.
"We are the underdogs, most people expect Buxton to finish the job from here but we still have 15 races to go, let's see what happens!
"Armo has told us he is ready to ride again and he could well be in our plans for Sunday. We have missed his presence both on and off the track."

DUDLEY Heathens are in line to finish top of the National League table after romping to an emphatic win over Weymouth at Perry Barr.
Heathens moved ahead of Newport on race points difference with their 65-27 victory, and can now only be headed by Buxton if the Hitmen rack up a huge win of their own in their final match at King's Lynn.
They dominated from start to finish against the Wildcats, providing all 15 race winners - and the closest the visitors came was in the very last race when James Cockle led for three and a half laps only for Dudley skipper Lee Smart to surge through into the last bend.
It was a points-feast for the whole Heathens team, with Tom Perry supplying some thrilling action from the back, including a last-to-first effort in Heat 3 and another fine battle with Tom Brown to win Heat 12.
Boss Will Pottinger said: "I told the boys beforehand how important it was to win this meeting by as many points as we could, and full credit to them, they never let up from start to finish. It's exactly the result we wanted and we're looking good for finishing top."

KING'S LYNN star Simon Lambert was the deserving winner of the hugely successful Golden Hammer revival at Monmore Green.
Lambert, who also appears in the Premier League for Sheffield, went through the card with a faultless 15-point maximum to finish two points clear of Buxton's Craig Cook, with Dudley Heathens skipper Lee Smart completing the podium finishers on twelve.
Smart had looked a good shout for the crown when he won his first three rides, but he lost out to Lambert in Heat 14 and was relegated to third place in a tight scrap with team-mate Micky Dyer.
The two Heathens men ended up meeting again in a run-off for third after finishing level on points, but it turned into a demonstration outing for Smart as the unlucky Dyer blew an engine on the start-line.
Heathens Chairman Nigel Pearson said: "It's been a great night, once again we are delighted with the support we've received and everyone has enjoyed it with Simon a very worthy winner.
"It's also been good to run the meeting under the FAST banner and promote the work of the Dudley Stroke Association, and we thank them for their support. I can confirm that we will certainly look to stage the event again next season."

DUDLEY Heathens' National League title hopes took a big hit as in-form Buxton took their second victory in less than a month at Monmore Green.
Heathens could have no complaints at the end of an incident-packed first leg tie, which contained numerous talking points and a terrific atmosphere but simply not enough race wins for the home side.
Dudley had a dream start with a first-race 5-1 from Lee Smart and Micky Dyer after Buxton No.1 Craig Cook had fallen - but the visitors refused to be put off by that and took control of the meeting with three 5-1s of their own in a four-race spell between Heats 4 and 7.
Smart and Dyer remained the most effective Heathens, skipper Smart dropping his only point in the last race, but the Hitmen racked up eleven race wins in total with the fast-gating Adam Allott unbeaten with the exception of a disqualification for tape-breaking in Heat 10.
The visitors also had a major sting in the tail as 15-year-old Jason Garrity clocked up paid-17 at reserve, his uncompromising style leading to several moments of high tension in the pits and not all involving members of the opposition!
Heathens will look to bounce back when they make first of two return trips to Buxton this Sunday, starting with Knockout Cup action when their first-leg deficit is four points.

Buxton win on aggregate  92-91

 

 
DUDLEY Heathens suffered an agonising Knockout Cup defeat against Buxton - losing a dramatic semi-final by a single point on aggregate.
Heathens trailed the Hitmen by four points from the first leg at Monmore Green but mounted a superb recovery to win the away fixture, with Jake Anderson and Barrie Evans both in outstanding form.
The home side opened an early 21-9 lead but Heathens immediately deployed Evans for double-points in Heat 6 and he combined with Ashley Morris for a big 8-1 to bring the visitors back into contention.
Back-to-back 4-2s extended the Hitmen's lead to nine on the day, but Heathens hit back with Anderson winning both Heats 10 and 11 backed up by third places from Micky Dyer and Tom Perry.
When Evans and Dyer took a 5-1 in Heat 13, the scores stood at 41-40 on the day and Heathens were left needing a 4-2 and a 5-1 from the last two races to complete an amazing comeback.
Anderson and Morris gated in a maximum position in Heat 14 but disaster struck as Morris came to grief on the second lap, and although Anderson took the win the home side were virtually safe.
They just had to provide a finisher in the last race, and they achieved that for the point they required as Anderson and Evans surged clear to leave the Heathens that single point short.
Buxton will face King's Lynn in the Cup Final, but Heathens are back at the Hi-Edge Raceway next Sunday for the second leg of their play-off semi-final - this time facing a ten-point first leg deficit.

DUDLEY Heathens will stage one last home meeting at Wolverhampton on Tuesday after their National League play-off exit at Buxton on Sunday.
The former Cradley club went down 49-43 on the day, 99-83 on aggregate, despite a brave effort after losing their home leg by 10-points.
And the day was marred by an injury to hugely popular Heathens star Tom Perry who was taken to hospital with a wrist injury and is doubtful for Tuesday’s Staffordshire Cup tie with Stoke.
Boss Will Pottinger said: “It was always going to be a tough task for us and the injury to Tom was a massive blow.
“But the boys gave it their all and now we will look forward to the Stoke meeting on Tuesday and see if we can give our fans something more to cheer.
“I’d like to put on record my appreciation, on behalf of the team, for the support we have had all season long, it has made a massive difference and Tuesday will be a night of celebration.”
