ROBINS will take a commanding 22-point lead into tomorrow's Elite Shield second leg against arch rivals Coventry Bees after a blistering 57-35 win at Blunsdon tonight.

Swindon skipper Leigh Adams recorded his second consecutive paid maximum as Robins blitzed their stunned visitors, winning all but four heats.

Man-of-the-match Mads Korneliussen returned paid 11 from his new position at number four, and Travis McGowan showed a glimpse of his enormous potential with a 10-point haul.

For Coventry, American Billy Janniro chalked up 14 points from five rides, but it wasn't enough to save face for his team.

Robins travel to Brandon tomorrow night (8pm start) looking to finish the job and pocket the first piece of silverware on offer in 2008.
