TAPES-UP: Howarth ready to prove his point
RESERVE Kyle Howarth believes he has plenty to prove when he makes his return to former club Poole this afternoon.
The Robins snapped up the youngster as a replacement for Kacper Gomolski earlier in the season, but he began the year at Wimborne Road before being dropped from the Pirates side to accommodate the big changes needed following an injury to Darcy Ward.
Howarth felt he didn’t deserve to lose his Poole spot, and will be looking to show his former fans what they are missing during this afternoon’s televised meeting.
“I definitely have a point to prove, and I want to show everyone what I have been doing and what I’ve done for Swindon so this is an important meeting for me,” he said.
“I know the track pretty well and there’s no excuse there, so hopefully I can go in there and have a good one.
“This is my job and it’s what I’m paid to do, so I should be able to go in there and compete against their riders and do my bit. They are coming on strong at the end of the season and it’s a hard meeting for us, but if we can hit them hard at the start we have a very good chance.”
Howarth is expecting a tough meeting, and knows he and his teammates have work to do to make amends for Thursday night’s shock loss at home to Belle Vue.
“It should be good and I’m looking forward to it, although it will be a tough meeting for us,” he said.
“Losing at home didn’t help us the other night and knocked our confidence a bit, but we have a good team and we can come back with something I’m sure.
“The boys riding in the Grand Prix Challenge will have had a good look at the track on Saturday night which will help, and I’m sure they will be able to help us out when we get down there on Monday.”
Howarth will be partnered at reserve by Kyle Newman, with Ashley Birks absent due to Scunthorpe’s meeting with Leicester this afternoon.
