SWINDON Robins meeting tonight with Lakeside Hammers has been postponed due to rain with the fixture now moved to this Thursday, August 28.

The Robins have agreed a fixture switch which will now see 
Wolverhampton, who were scheduled to visit this week, will move to next Thursday, September 4.

The change has come about due to rider availability issues for Wolves, with the clubs agreeing to switch fixtures in the best interests of the sport and the supporters.

Robins chief Alun Rossiter said: “With fixture clashes in Sweden it was looking like Wolves would have to come here with no facility for a couple of riders in their top five, and of course they also unfortunately have Tai (Woffinden) injured at the moment.

“Whilst this is obviously an important match for us and we need the points, we also want to put on a competitive and credible meeting for the supporters.

“I have confidence in our team, especially given the form they have shown at home lately, and this change means we should have a proper spectacle over the next couple of weeks.

“Our thanks again to Lakeside for agreeing to the change, and we look forward to welcoming them on Thursday.”

Roscoe must be the only manager who would do this for other clubs as no other club has given a sh*t about our riders missing what a joke.

Rosco probably is the only one who would do this but surely that says more about him than other promotors/managers. Nice to know that there's still someone decent in speedway when so many are just selfish and oblivious to hrlping the sport.

Fair play to Rosco, and yes, if I'm paying £17 I would like to see us racing against full-strength teams and not just pick up easy points. If we are not good enough to beat these teams then we don't deserve to be in the play-offs. We just need to beat the weather and get these home meetings ridden. I have been saying for months that Kings Lynn, Poole and Coventry would be the top 3, and all we needed to do to secure 4th was win our home meetings and take all the points on offer, and that remains the case realistically.
