SWINDON Robins supremo Terry Russell says he is happy with the club’s progression so far this season.

Alun Rossiter’s men are level on points with Wolverhampton Wolves at the top of the SGB Premiership table and, after bad weather halted the start of the season, Russell feels the club are moving in the right direction and are getting the results to match.

“We started the season well. We were fifth favourites according to the bookies and now we are favourites, so it is a good position to be in,” Russell told the Robins’ Twitter account.

“I’m happy with how things are going on and off of the track.

“The sport seems to be having a bit of a problem, but we are doing alright so we will carry on trying to do our best.

“The club is a boat and we are all rowing to try and keep the thing moving in the right direction.”

Thursday evening sees Swindon return to home action after a short break, as Rye House Rockets visit the Abbey Stadium, 24 hours after Rossiter’s men go to Leicester Lions.

The last time they met Rye House was in the Knockout Cup, where Rossiter’s riders were dominant at home winning 59-31 just under three weeks ago.

This time around, though, Russell is expecting a much tighter affair.

“Let’s hope for a comfortable win,” added Russell, who urged supporters to continue passing through the turnstiles on both Mondays and Thursdays.

“We got one over them in the cup, but it is a league match now so it’s a different ball game.

“The crowds are holding up on a Thursday. But we also need the fans to realise we need them when we are forced to race on other nights such as Monday evening to keep the club running all of the time.”
