Rosco - 'We will give it 100 per cent'
SWINDON Robins team manager Alun Rossiter has reassured the speedway public his side will be racing to win in their final regular season fixture against Lakeside.
The meeting against the Hammers is currently scheduled for Monday night alongside Poole’s vital visit to Belle Vue, with the outcome of the two meetings set to decide which team finishes fourth and joins the Robins in the play-offs.
Depending on the result of their trip to King’s Lynn this evening Lakeside are likely to need at least a point from their visit to Blunsdon, while a four-point victory for the Pirates at Kirkmanshulme Lane would put the Wimborne Road club in pole position.
With that in mind Swindon captain Hans Andersen suggested in Monday’s Advertiser that his side could consider their options depending on who they would rather face in the play-offs, but Rossiter insisted that is not the case and that his side would be giving their all to win.
“We will be coming out 100 per cent to win the match, nothing more, nothing less,” he said.
“Maybe a few of the riders will try new engines or other bits like that but I can’t stop them from doing that because it’s their prerogative and it’s something which needs to happen in speedway.
“I can assure people I will be making sure the riders give it 100 per cent to win because that’s what the paying public want and we will be doing all we can to win for Swindon Speedway.”
Furthermore, with his promoter’s hat on, Rossiter would prefer to host Poole in the play-offs considering how packed the Abbey Stadium was for their visit on Thursday, and would also fancy his side to beat anyone in the play-offs over the two legs.
“I would love to have Poole back here in the play-offs and after seeing the crowd we got the last time they came here as a promoter that’s exactly what we want again,” he said.
“People say all sorts but we had our biggest crowd of the season when they came here which says a lot, and it would be great if Poole come back again so all in all we need to go out and beat Lakeside.
“I’m not worried by any of the teams in there, and without being big headed I’m confident in all my riders that when we get to the play-offs we can beat anyone.”
