Swindon Speedway – Match preview

Swindon Speedway – Match preview

Swindon boss Alun Rossiter is hoping the Robins can bounce back from their first defeat since May when they head to Wolverhampton today.

The Carpets4Less Robins saw their remarkable run of 17 straight wins brought to an end as their depleted side went down 46-29 at Rye House on Friday.

Despite their defeat, Rossiter’s side have already secured top spot in the SGB Premiership table – and he says they have now “got the monkey off our back” and he is determined to get back to winning ways and send another message to their title rivals as they take on second placed Wolverhampton at Monmore Green.

“We’ve got to go there looking to send a message,” Rossiter said. “It’s a tough place to go, Wolves are good on their home track, but we’ve proven we can win anywhere this season.

“We were disappointed to lose at Rye House but the circumstances weren’t ideal and the monkey is off our back now.

“We’ve not got that winning run looming over us, so hopefully now that’s come to an end we can regroup and get going again ready for the play-offs.”

The Robins have drafted in Mitchell Davey and Tom Perry to guest at reserve, whilst the top five is at full strength with Tobiasz Musielak taking on his former club.

Swindon will be first up on a double header at Monmore Green, with Wolves taking on King’s Lynn immediately after the Robins’ meeting.

Admission for both meetings is £25 for adults, £20 concessions, £10 for juniors with under-13s able to attend for free.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Freddie Lindgren, Kyle Howarth, Rory Schlein, Jacob Thorssell, Sam Masters, Mark Riss, Nathan Greaves.
SWINDON: Jason Doyle, Adam Ellis, Tobiasz Musielak, David Bellego, Nick Morris, Mitchell Davey, Tom Perry.
