ALUN Rossiter is adamant the SGB Premiership title is still within touching distance for his Swindon Robins side and has promised to go all out for glory against Wolverhampton Wolves this evening.

Swindon must overturn a four-point deficit in tonight’s Grand Final second leg at Monmore Green, with the Robins having slipped to a shock 47-43 loss at the Abbey Stadium in Monday’s first leg.

Although Rossiter concedes his troops will be underdogs to lift the crown, he is targeting a fast start to the meeting in order to raise doubts in the minds of the Wolves riders.

A maximum victory for Swindon in the night’s first race will restore parity on the scoreboard and blow the Grand Final wide open again.

“One 5-1 and we are back in it. We just need to start well and do to Wolves what they did to us on Monday,” said Rossiter.

“We have Jason Doyle in heat one so we know it is entirely possible that we can do that. We have just got to get at them straight away.

“Wolves have got to defend the lead and that brings a bit of pressure with it.

“Obviously they are on their home track so they will feel confident, just like we should have felt confident on Monday, but if we can get it back level after a couple of heats, then they might start to feel a few nerves.”

Despite letting the chance to take the initiative in the Grand Final slip through their fingers with a below-par performance at the Abbey on Monday, Rossiter says the mood in the camp has not dimmed.

With Swindon having been crowned British champions just once since their maiden national title back in 1967, Rossiter hopes the opportunity for his riders to write their names into Robins history serves as inspiration.

“The riders are upbeat about it,” said Rossiter, who also masterminded a title triumph as Swindon boss back in 2012.

“Obviously they are disappointed with what happened on Monday but when I spoke to them afterwards, they said it is not over yet and that came from all of them.

“It is still in our hands and we have still got a good chance of doing something special.

“We have got to dig deep. We have got everything to gain and nothing to lose.”
