Win over King’s Lynn makes nine in a row

Super Swindon overcame the loss of Jason Doyle to make it nine wins on the spin with a 50-40 success at King’s Lynn.

The Carpets4Less Robins looked in serious danger of losing for the first time since May when Doyle crashed out after clashing with Thomas Jorgensen in the very first race.

But whilst he was taken to hospital for x-rays on his foot and ribs, his side rallied around to earn an impressive four points.

It was another gutsy showing from Alun Rossiter’s side – and he praised the character shown by his side to see off the new-look Stars.

Said Rossiter: “It was a great performance by the boys, especially after losing Doyley so early on.

“Full credit to all of them – everybody dug deep and did their job. It was a tight meeting, but we came on strong towards the end and it’s another massive four points for us.

“We’re really gelling at the moment. Things are looking good so long may it continue.” 

The sides were all square entering the final five races – but the impressive Tobiasz Musielak and Nick Morris joined forces for big 5-1s in heats 11 and 13 to give them the upper hand.

The pair dropped just one point apiece and helped cover the loss of Doyle when injury rider replacement kicked in.

Reserve Adam Ellis also roared to three wins in his first three races to keep them in contention in the early stages before emerging unscathed from an awkward tangle with team-mate David Bellego in the penultimate race.

Bellego continued his fine form with a solid showing, whilst Bradley Wilson-Dean recovered from a tough start to deliver possibly the ride of the night to blast around the outside and win heat 12.

Although guesting reserve Jake Knight struggled to make an impact, the Robins emerged with all four points.

They will aim to make it ten wins on the bounce when they host Leicester at the Abbey on Thursday (7.30). 

KING’S LYNN 40: Kai Huckenbeck 11, Robert Lambert 6+1, Thomas Jorgensen 6+1, Josh Auty 5+2, Tomas H Jonasson 5, Simon Lambert 4+2, Michael Palm-Toft 3.

SWINDON 50: Tobiasz Musielak 13+2, Nick Morris 13+2, Adam Ellis 11, David Bellego 9, Bradley Wilson-Dean 4, Jake Knight 0, Jason Doyle 0.
