SWINDON team manager Alun Rossiter believes his team is just better than anyone they are coming up against at the moment after the Robins recorded their second score of 65 points or above in a matter of days on Thursday night.

After dispatching Ipswich Witches 66-24 on Bank Holiday Monday in front of a bumper crowd at the Abbey Stadium, Rossiter’s septet produced a similar scoreline against the division’s bottom side, Peterborough Panthers, winning 65-25.

Paid maximum’s from Jason Doyle and birthday boy, Troy Batchelor ensured the meeting result was decided after heat 10 while Adam Ellis grabbed paid 13 and Rasmus Jensen scored 10 on a night where the Robins recorded nine heat maximums.

Rider of the night for the second meeting in succession, Ellis Perks chipped in with a paid eight performance and after telling the awaiting press pack ‘I told you so’ in response to his prediction that his two reserves would continue to produce, Rossiter sprinkled a word of praise over the entire outfit.

He said: “It hurts the old bank balance a little bit, but you can’t have everything.

“The team spirit is sky high, confidence is high and we’re loving riding our home track now.

“We’ve got it pretty much dialed in and you can say teams are poor, but I’ve actually gone the other way now and I’m just saying we’re good.

“And that’s not me being big-headed or cocky, you’ve got to give the boys some credit.

“They weren’t making starts and they’re still coming from the back to win.

“We saw Adam Ellis do that when there were two guys in front of him, he somehow finds a way through and the next thing you know, Doyle follows him through.

“It’s just a case of having confidence in the track, and it’s just great at the moment.”

Although the Robins have finished their home meetings in the league for the time being, there is still the small matter of a trio of tricky away ties to contend with.

Rossiter knows points must be accumulated if his side are to remain top of the Premiership standings in a few weeks’ time, and the team manager sees no reason why their decent away form of late cannot continue.

He said: “We’ve still got three hard meetings to come, but it’s in our destiny.

“We’re more than capable of winning on the road with the way that we’re riding, so fingers crossed that we can get some more points and get the choice of doing what we want to do in the play-offs.”
