Rosco calls for repeat performance
ROBINS boss Alun Rossiter simply wants the same again from his riders when they face Lakeside once again this evening.
With the Elite League champions leading by eight Thursday’s meeting between the two teams was called off after seven heats due to heavy rain, with visibility issues making conditions unraceable.
If three more heats had been managed the result would have stood and Lakeside would have been denied a place in the play-offs, but even though the Hammers now have a second chance to take the four point win they need Rossiter expects his riders to produce once again.
“They know the drill and they know what we want to do, but it’s pretty much as we were and the same again,” he said.
“It won’t be a problem to get them going because at the end they are the ones who earn the money, and I am sure they will deliver.
“Lakeside have another go at it and they will be fired up but I’m very confident we can get what we need.
“They have Ulamek back who did well at the weekend so they will be stronger now so it’s not going to be a walk in the park either, but I’m confident.
“There will be some nervous Poole fans watching the meeting but we just have to do our job.”
If the meeting beats the weather and Birmingham’s clash with King’s Lynn is postponed then the Robins will have a chance to finish top of the table, but Rossiter admitted he is pretty fixed on his plans for the play-offs regardless of where they finish.
“It looks that way and we will have a chance, but we are pretty nailed on with what we will do so it doesn’t really matter,” he said.
“We know what we want to do and we will just have to wait.”
Rossiter has also moved to clarify the situation regarding admission prices for tonight’s meeting.
He said: "We ran a special promotion for £10 last Thursday, but that has gone and is in no way related to this Monday.
"We are offering £10 admission to those supporters who bring a re-admission ticket from Thursday because that meeting was cut short. It really is that simple, this is a completely separate offer to supporters and I hope it goes some way to compensating for the early finish to last Thursday's meeting.
"We look forward to seeing the terraces packed for what is a big night of Elite League racing."
