Defending champions Poole Pirates advanced to their third straight Sky Sports Elite League final with a comprehensive win over Lakeside Hammers.

Holding a 58-43 lead heading into the home leg of their semi-final, the Pirates eased to a 61-30 success on the night for an aggregate victory by a margin of 108-73.

Krzysztof Kasprzak (14+1), Piotr Pawlicki (12+3), Darcy Ward (12) and Chris Holder (11+1) all produced maximums for Poole during a one-sided contest at Wimbourne Road.

Robert Mear was the only Lakeside rider to even win a heat.

The Pirates must wait to learn their final opponents, with Swindon Robins strong favourites after earning a 55-35 win over Birmingham Brummies in the rearranged first leg at Perry Barr.

Peter Kildemand (14+1) led the way with four heat victories and was well supported by Troy Batchelor (13+1) and Jason Doyle (9+1).

The second leg takes place at Abbey Stadium on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the night's other Elite League fixture saw Wolverhampton Wolves edge out bottom-of-the-table Belle Vue Aces 46-44 at Monmore Green.
