That's all for tonight, we're back next Thursday when the Robins host Leicester.

Don't forget you can read a full report and reaction tomorrow as well as more speedway in Monday's Tapes-Up

10:28pm

A little reaction before it's time to go. Alun Rossiter not happy with a point but doesn't blame Kildemand for his heat 13 crash.

Swindon Advertiser: Alun Rossiter

ALUN ROSSITER

“It’s points dropped again, it’s not good enough,” the Robins boss said after the meeting.

“We should have at least taken three points, minimum, it was there for the taking for us, so we’re bitterly disappointed.

“Kildemand lost it in heat 13 where the front wheel went over the concrete and it washed away, that can happen, but it was a hard race and he and Scotty were fighting going into the corner.

“I can’t blame him but he did give me a heart attack going into the final race but he managed to pull it back so we have to try and be happy with a point now.”

9:27pm

A point it is for the Robins. Time for some reaction.

KING'S LYNN STARS 48 SWINDON ROBINS 42

9:25pm

Heat 15: Iversen, Batchelor, Kildemand, Nicholls; 60.40 – 3-3 (48-42)
Two great gates see the Robins pair settle behind Iversen but, when Kildemand slipped and was passed by  Nicholls it looked as though the point was gone. However, the Dane fought back to secure a dramatic point on the final lap.

9:19pm

Iversen, Nicholls, Batchelor and Kildemand in heat 15. Still hopes of a point here

9:15pm

Heat 14: Kerr, Lambert, Gustafsson, Worrall R; 61.11 – 5-1 (45-39)
With Lynn already on a max, Worrall and Gustafsson get far too close to each other and the Robins’ chances of winning are gone.

9:11pm

Heat 13: Iversen, Nicholls, Batchelor, Kildemand FX; 59.12 – 5-1 (40-38)
After Kildemand is excluded for barging inside Nicholls in turn one, the Robins skipper can’t quite better Nicholls to stop him backing up Iversen to give the Stars their first lead of the night.

9:03pm

Kildemand looks to barge up the inside going into turn one and hits the dirt before Nicholls run right into the back of him. The Robins man is okay, but excluded.

9:00pm

I think Rosco's just been on the phone to the referee to complain about the start of that heat, but looking at the replay here in the box it appears it was actually Worrall who moved first.

8:59pm

Heat 12: Porsing, North, Kerr, Worrall; 60.10 – 4-2 (35-37)
North completely missed the start but does really well to battle back and push Porsing all the way.

8:54pm

Heat 11: Kildemand, Nicholls, Schlein, Gustafsson; 61.32 – 3-3 (31-35)
Classic Kildemand as the Dane winds it up and barges his way through Nicholls. Great ride, but Gustafsson can’t join him.

8:51pm

Back on track now for heat 11. Five big heats to come.

Is Batch getting tired now ? needs to find more speed - team talk needed before it goes down the same path as Monday evening

8:46pm

Interval time and the Robins still lead despite supplying only three race winners so far.

8:42pm

Heat 10: Iversen, Morris, Porsing, Batchelor; 58.72 – 4-2 (28-32)
Batchelor passes Porsing in turn two but the Stars man bites back to support his teammate and race winner Iversen.

8:37pm

Heat nine: Kerr, Worrall, Rose, Greaves F; 60.51 – 4-2 (24-30)
Worrall makes the gate but is passed before Greaves slips off while defending third. He up and clears the track.

8:35pm

A very, very big heat nine coming up. 3-3 will do just fine.

8:32pm

Heat eight: North, Morris, Schlein, Lambert; 60.22 – 1-5 (20-28)
Robins gate on a 5-1 and do well to hold of Schlein, who never really challenges Morris.

8:29pm

8:25pm

Heat seven: Porsing, Gustafsson, Greaves, Rose FX; 59.51 – 3-3 (19-23)
After Gustafsson pushes Rose wide in original staging of the race, Swindon’s Swede makes turn one ahead of Porsing but the Lynn man gets the drive coming out of two to get the win.

8:19pm

Rose is excluded.

8:18pm

Red lights on as Rose hits the fence under pressure from Gustafsson.

8:16pm

Heat six: Batchelor, Kildemand, Schelin, Lambert; 58.97 – 5-1 (16-20)
Schlein makes a great gate from the outside but Batchelor takes him wide to allow himself and Kildemand through for a max.

8:11pm

Heat five: Iversen, Nicholls, Morris, Gustafsson; 58.54 – 5-1 (15-15)
Gustafsson missed the gate and never gets back in touch. Morris looks quick but can’t catch Nicholls.

8:01pm

Heat four: Kerr, North, Worrall, Lambert; 59.77 – 3-3 (10-14)
North does all he can to try and get past Kerr but it’s not enough.

8:00pm

Looking forward to watching Lambert in the next one.

7:57pm

Heat three: Batchelor, Morris, Schlein, Nicholls; 60.11 – 1-5 (7-11)
Two great starts from the Robins and it’s the first maximum of the evening.

7:53pm

Heat two: Kerr, Worrall, Greaves, Rose R; 61.12  - 3-3 (6-6)
Worrall sends Rose very wide in the second visit to turns one and two, forcing the Stars man off, but he picks himself up and walks off.

7:49pm

Heat one: Iversen, Kildemand, North, Porsing; 58.45 – 3-3 (3-3)
North almost topples over in turn two but holds on to beat Porsing for third.

7:45pm

Riders on track, here we go!

I feel we will get hammered tonight sorry to say KL reserves are far too strong and were against the best team in the league by a mile. Still good luck Robins I think your going to need it.

7:39pm

Not the biggest crowd I've ever seen at the Norfolk Arena but I guess that's understandable given it's on TV.

7:36pm

Slight delay here while we wait for the sun to go down a little. Nearly there.

A member of the track team reversed over the two-minute timer at the start line earlier, so doubt that will be working tonight!

7:29pm

Very nearly ready for the off here at the Norfolk Arena. Stars have gates one and three in heat one.

Id like to say an away win by 2 but i havent got that feeling tonight gustaffsson isnt performing and you only need 1 more in the top 5 not performing and were beat i hope grieves can pick up a few points very hard for the young lad though.i think premier speedway was more enjoyable at swindon than the elite league.

That was an attempt to show you the parade, live, but it didn't really work.

RISING STAR

Swindon Advertiser: Action from last night's meeting between King's Lynn Stars and Swindon Robins (picture: Matthew Usher/EDP Sport)

Gustafsson will be up against both Lewis Kerr and Lewis Rose tonight, but will also have to deal with National League graduate Robert Lambert, who rides in the Lynn top five. Another potentially embarrassing obstacle.

7:18pm

STUTTERING SWEDE

Swindon Advertiser: Simon Gustafsson

SIMON GUSTAFSSON

If there's one Swindon rider under scrutiny this evening it has to be Simon Gustafsson.

The Swede has produced a couple of decent performances in a Robins suit but has all too often been beaten by the opposition reserves.

That can't go on much longer and a good performance is needed, although Rosco has already admitted any replacement may be hard to find.

7:14pm

From walking the pits earlier it looked as if Troy Batchelor won the toss and elected to pick the heat 15 gates, so the Stars will choose heat one.

Very evident the new race format flatters the strength of the robins team - yes a close score up until heat 10 or so but not many points scored from the last 4 or 5 races - highlights weakness with several riders - especially at reserve & with Gustaffson,".

Rosco what a laughing stock we are - Nigel Green has just said it 'a replica of Monday evening' . We were 8 yes 8 points up what happened oh yes I know - that person called Gustafsson
Well here's the answer to that - song from sound of music - that goes like this
So long farewell you leave and we heave a sigh - goodbye goodbye goodbye
Sort it out - we are better than this

Sadly have to agree with Morris 1. Gustafson is a liability. The young draft rider is way out of his depth too. I would have thought a losing point would be a good return from Kings Lynn but feel a win was there for the taking.

Massive problem for Roscoe is Simon Gustafsson who has been very poor this season and getting worse if that's a new engine then why is he getting beat by draft riders. Shocking collapse yet again by the team and even our top guys making mistakes. Wonder if we could get Buszkowski in from Peterborough. Greaves looked ok and will get better if given time but 16 is very young and feel this draft system should be in the premier league and not Elite which is a step too far I feel.

In the big scene of things, isn't this a good result? Well done lads. A point away from home. With a bit of luck it could have been more and luck will even itself out over the season. I feel Roscoe's comments are a bit harsh. Time to put your arm around a few a them methinks.
