SWINDON Robins captain Jason Doyle does not believe there will be a lasting effect on the King’s Lynn Stars after his side demolished Peter Schroek’s men 58-32 at the Abbey Stadium on Thursday.

The Stars were unable to pick up a heat advantage at all throughout last week’s SGB Premiership Supporters’ Cup meeting in Wiltshire, but the Grand Prix star suggested that home advantage in speedway makes forgetting heavy defeats that little bit easier for teams.

Swindon travel to the Adrian Flux Arena tonight aiming to compound their dominance over the Stars and improve their underwhelming away record so far in the league.

Based in Norwich, Doyle will not have far to travel for tonight’s meeting, and will hope to lead the Robins to their first away league victory of 2019.

Dismissing suggestions that the Stars may suffer a hangover from Thursday night’s humiliation, Doyle said: “It’s a clean slate when we go back to King’s Lynn. That’s their home track, like the Abbey is ours.

“I know we haven’t had the best home track advantage in the last few matches, but Thursday showed that if we can keep the same track in such good condition, we’ll be alright.

“But King’s Lynn know their track very well and they’ve got some very quick riders.

“It’s lovely having Ipswich and King’s Lynn in the league when I only have to travel from Norwich.

“It’s always nice to be travelling close to home, but I don’t mind travelling when you’ve got a great fan base in Swindon and also, the track is much better now, and we can race on it.”

After a slow start to his Grand Prix campaign, Doyle made the final in the Czech Republic and recorded a perfect maximum at the Abbey on Thursday.

The 33-year-old admitted he had not been completely healthy during the early part of the season, but now he feels he is back to full fitness and is excited to get going again after a rare weekend off.

Doyle said: “We’ve had eight meetings in eight days last week and it takes its toll on your body.

“You need to sit down, take a little bit of a breather and get all the equipment back up to the right standards for the Grand Prix.

“We’ve got one more week to go until Sweden and hopefully we can build on what I did in making my first final of the year (in Prague).

“The first couple of Grand Prix meetings, I was injured still.

“As many people know, the ribs were playing a big part in it, and also another couple of bones weren’t really healing.

“I’m 100 per cent fit now and it’s nice to be on the bike without any injuries at all.”
