SWINDON ROBINS: Rosco backs Poole for title
SWINDON boss Alun Rossiter can’t see past Robins’ conquerors Poole Pirates as the destiny of the Elite League title is set to be decided this evening.
Having beaten the Robins in a dramatic semi-final a fortnight ago, the Dorset side lead Birmingham by a mammoth 21 points following last week’s 57-36 win in the first leg of the final.
Last night’s scheduled second leg was postponed early in the day due to wet weather but is set to go ahead at Perry Barr tonight, and Rossiter is fully expecting the Pirates to come away with the title.
“I know everyone down there keeps saying it’s not over yet, but that’s just them being cautious and trying not to end up with egg on their face,” he said.
“Apart from an absolute disaster or something going horribly wrong it’s theirs for the taking.
“I’m still pretty disappointed because I think it should have been us, but we let ourselves down and it wasn’t to be.”
