SWINDON Robins boss Alun Rossiter is not interested in making team changes, despite his side suffering their heaviest defeat of the season against Belle Vue Aces at the National Speedway Stadium last night.

Reserve Jack Smith failed to score while skipper Nick Morris only returned with paid two – essentially gifting the home side all three points as Robins lost their grip at the top of the SGB Premiership table.

Rossiter held his hands up and admitted Belle Vue deserved the victory – adding a quick return to form at Wolverhampton next week is high on his mind.

Rossiter said: “We got beat, and everybody will tell me I’ve got to make changes.

“There’s nobody out there and I’m not really interested in making changes for the sake of making changes.

“Belle Vue came to the party tonight and it’s probably the best they’ve rode here all year, they were on fire.

“Sometimes you have to tip your hat and say you were beaten by the better team.

“I wouldn’t say we rode badly, but we made a couple of mistakes that cost us points.

“We were in the mix, but couldn’t get the right lines.”

The National Speedway Stadium once again produced some spectacular racing with riders trading blows on all types of varying lines throughout the night.

Gating proved little advantage throughout the meeting as Rossiter stood by his words that Robins’ away form must improve if they are to defend their SGB Premiership play-off title.

“No matter whether we made the start or didn’t, we made mistakes on the track,” said Rossiter.

“It was excellent racing, but we just couldn’t live with them.

“Belle Vue is a tough place to come. In fairness I would say tonight was the first time they all clicked together as a team.

“We’ve got to up our game that’s for sure. That was the message before the start of the meeting too. It’s alright getting points at home, but we’ve got to do it on the road.”
