SWINDON Robins will switch their focus to getting back up to speed with their home track after last night’s trip to Wolverhampton Wolves was rained off.

Alun Rossiter’s side were due to travel to the West Midlands to take on the Wolves in their second away meeting of the season but with early evening rain soddening Monmore Green, the fixture was postponed just over an hour-and-a-half before tapes up at 7.30pm.

The Robins were forced to twiddle their thumbs and were unable to make a quick return to action after their fine 55-35 victory over Coventry Bees last week but there will at least be no requirement for Rossiter’s troops to alter their approach too much ahead of their next outing on Thursday as they are set to lock horns with the same opposition.

Swindon’s next meeting sees them host Wolverhampton, who won 52-38 at Coventry last Friday, at the Abbey Stadium (tapes up 7.45pm) and Rossiter senses an opportunity for his septet to work on building some early-season home momentum.

“It gives us a bit of a chance to work on how we ride at home, so that’s what we’ll have to do now,” said the Robins team manager.

“We’d all got there (on Monday) but the forecast was pretty poor – I think it had been dry earlier on but the rain got quite heavy at about 5pm, I’m led to believe.

“Maybe they could have called it earlier on but they must have thought that it had a chance of being on and it’s their meeting, so we have to go with their call.

“We’ll just get ready for another home meeting on Thursday now.”

Rossiter is also hopeful that number two Justin Sedgmen is ready to take flight after struggling with mechanical issues and only racking up two points during last week’s Bees triumph.

The Robins boss added: “He had some problems last week but he’ll be ready to go.”
