World champion Tai Woffinden roared to a 14 paid 15-point maximum as Wroclaw set up a showdown with table-topping Leszno in the PGE Ekstraliga play-off final.

The Brit blazed through his five rides unbeaten as Wroclaw racked up a 56-34 win over Zielona Gora in the semi-final, second leg at the Olympic Stadium, sealing a 98-82 aggregate success.

Woffy was aided by 11 paid 13 points from young gun Maksym Drabik, plus 10 paid 11 from SGP star Maciej Janowski. Russian racer Gleb Chugunov also weighed in with a handy eight points from three outings as the No.8.

Slovak star Martin Vaculik offered Zielona Gora’s only serious resistance on 14 points, while Patryk Dudek, Piotr Protasiewicz and Michael Jepsen Jensen all scored six points each.

Elsewhere, Leszno continued their charge for a third straight Ekstraliga title as Emil Sayfutdinov scored 13 points in their 52-38 win at home to Czestochowa to complete a 104-76 aggregate rout.

The Russian was backed up by 11 from Janusz Kolodziej, who bounced back brilliantly after failing to score at the Danish SGP sponsored by ECCO in Vojens on Saturday. Piotr Pawlicki notched nine and Jaroslaw Hampel added eight paid 10.

Danish ace Leon Madsen overcame a difficult day in his homeland yesterday by bagging 14 paid 15 for the Lions, while Freddie Lindgren accrued 11. Matej Zagar scored six.

The first leg of the final takes place in Wroclaw on Friday with Leszno staging the return on September 22 – the day after the Adrian Flux British SGP in Cardiff. Czestochowa host Zielona Gora in the opening leg of the bronze medal play-off on Sunday with the return on September 22.
