SWINDON Robins claimed a narrow victory over Eastbourne Eagles at the Abbey Stadium following a stunning display from Peter Kildemand.

The flying Dane went unbeaten throughout the night as Alun Rossiter’s side banished the memories of Good Friday’s double-defeat to Poole Pirates.

In a see-saw where the lead changed hands several times, it went down to the wire as Kildemand and captain Troy Batchelor claimed their third maximum when riding together.

The Robins will now look to full up this evening’s success tomorrow night when they head to Lakeside Hammers.

But they will be without Batchelor and Steve Worrall, who will be replaced by Bjarne Pedersen and Benji Compton respectively.

Full report and reaction in tomorrow’s Adver.
