SWINDON Robins boss Alun Rossiter has swooped to make another change to his side at reserve by signing up Denmark’s Claus Vissing.

The Robins were in need of a new rider at the bottom of the order following an injury suffered by Stefan Nielsen in last Monday’s away defeat at King’s Lynn Stars in the SGB Premiership.

That meeting was Nielsen’s first on the Swindon roster after he was signed to replace Zach Wajtknecht, who opted to stand down for the remainder of the 2019 season back in early June.

Changes have also been made in Swindon’s number six role, with James Shanes dropped in favour of Ellis Perks less than two months into the new season.

Rossiter said: “We needed to make a change because of Stefan’s injury.

“It’s a difficult one but we’ve had to act and bring someone in.

“It’s tough on Stefan. He is our asset so we wanted to give him a chance, and that’s why we brought him in.

“But we can’t afford to wait and see how Stefan’s injury improves to see if he can come back in. We can’t be in limbo for a few weeks

“Claus is a good rider and will do a good job for us. He is hungry to come to us and prove himself.

“I am confident he can score six or seven points a meeting down at reserve.”

Vissing also rides for Glasgow Tigers in the Championship and is set to make his Swindon debut in Thursday’s Premiership meeting at home to King’s Lynn.
