SWINDON Robins team manager Alun Rossiter believes his side are more than capable of recording their third away win of the season at Somerset Rebels tonight in their latest SGB Premiership encounter (7.30pm).

The Robins slipped to a 50-40 loss at the National Speedway Stadium against Belle Vue Aces on Monday night, meaning they lost their spot at the top of the Premiership table after Wolverhampton Wolves defeated Somerset.

However, Rossiter backed his side to bounce back from Monday’s loss, although admitted Somerset will provide a tough challenge at the Oaktree Arena.

The Rebels are enjoying their second season in the top flight after stepping up from Championship level in 2016.

And Garry May’s side signalled their intention to succeed during the off-season after landing the signature of world champion Jason Doyle.

Doyle’s departure from Swindon over the winter followed the introduction of a new rule which allows teams to only track one rider with an average greater than eight.

But Rossiter insists his side cannot afford to focus purely on Doyle as the Rebels’ main threat.

He said: “We can’t focus on Jason (Doyle), we know what a great rider he is.

“He’s the current world champion.

“But they’ve got six other riders, we’ve got to put him out of our mind and go there to beat the rest of the team.”

The Rebels also track former Robin Bradley Wilson-Dean in their line-up, while other riders include the talented Richard Lawson and Jack Holder, brother of former world champion Chris.

And Rossiter will be looking at his top men to bring home the points following a frustrating night of ‘ifs and buts’ in Manchester two days ago.

“To be honest, I haven’t taken much notice of Somerset since they moved up,” said Rossiter.

“We’re only worried about what we do.

“I worry about people when we get there, but they’ve done well and have riders that ride their track well.

“Man for man, though, we’re more than capable of beating them.

“But on their own track, it will be tough.

“I’m confident we’re more than capable of beating them.

“We need Nick (Morris) to step up a bit more, Adam (Ellis) had a frustrating night on Monday too."
