    Poor choice of guest. Robins will be lucky to make it to 38.

    Terrible choice of guest for PK - Lots have said it before, why oh why would Watt help the Robins defeat a play off contender who the Hammers would fancy beating in the play offs themselves ? Yes I know points make £'s but am sure the hammers would ensure Mr Watt is not out of pocket tonight.

    3 heat wins out of 9 is not good enough - time for one of Rossiter's legendary team talks !

    I posted this earlier today - I rest my case!! "Why aren't we using Jason Doyle as a stand in for Kildemand tonight and Thursday?? Surely Davy Watt from potential play-off rivals Lakeside cannot be a good choice. I cant imagine he will be busting a gut to secure a Swindon win. At least Doyle is a Swindon asset and will not have a conflict of interest as he rides for Leicester! I trust Rosco has thought this one through?? Maybe he wasn't available but would like to think he had been asked!"

    I wonder what masterstroke Rosco will pull for Thursday night - Peter Karlsson, Bomber, Craig Cook, Danny King? Please let it be Jason Doyle, who I really hope is in the team plans for next season.

    Roscoe seems clueless with Guest riders Richie Worrall complete flop and now Watt who obviously wants Lakeside to make the play offs.

    Do you really think Doyle will want to bail the Robins out by riding for us on Thursday - after the way he was left out of our team plans at the beginning of the season, I don't think he owes Rossiter any favours !

    Who would we beat over two legs should we reach the play offs. I know we have no PK but this is has become a pretty standard away performance. Is this another one that Rosco will want to "park". Mikeinwanborough now you you've told him there's no surprise, did you forget Lewis Bridger?

    Another all round poor performance tonight. Not for the first time this season away from home the only rider who can truly hold his head up is Stevie Worrall.

    On a sad note, reading that Mike Ferreira, who rode for Swindon at the start of the 80's has passed away in his sleep. Genuine nice guy.

    Rosco. Do you have a credible reason/answer to this latest away failure. You motivate the team, you choose the guests. A win on Thursday does NOT make tonights performance alright!

    Just not good enough again. Poor returns from Batch, Morris and Gustafsson and Watt may as well have stayed at home. Even if we make the play offs, I can't see us going to Poole, Kings Lynn or Lakeside/Eastbourne/
    Coventry and getting enough points to get through a two-legged semi-final.

    And North 8 points was decent.

    Yep, agree with that, kept to his average.

    Let us wait and see what excuses come out in the wash this time - everyone keeps on about Jason Doyle being left out of the team at the start of the season - but do we really know why he was not included in the team ?
    Have to agree that Rosco's guest choice is somewhat bazaar
