TAPES-UP: Wimborne Road return won't faze Swindon Robins star Kildemand
PETER Kildemand will be putting his last experience of Wimborne Road firmly behind him when he takes to the track against Poole tonight.
After crashing out of the Robins’ home clash with Belle Vue on August 22 the Dane went into the Grand Prix Challenge at the home of the Pirates suffering with the effects of a mild concussion, and struggled throughout the meeting as he crashed twice more and ended the night with no points from his five rides.
As a result Kildemand then missed Swindon’s league match at Poole two days later, but the 24-year-old has put all that out his mind as he bids to help Swindon defend their 10-point lead and make the Elite League final once again.
“We have a 10-point lead but it will be tough, and we all have to keep pushing,” he said.
“It might be hard if someone has a bad day, but it should be okay.
“I won’t be thinking about what happened last time and I’m only looking at Monday and it will be fine.
“You have to forget it because I really wasn’t myself that day and I had a really bad one, but hopefully I will do what I normally do.
“It’s a good track for racing and if you don’t make the start you can make a few good lines and there are chances for passing, and it’s a nice one to race.”
Kildemand believes the Robins reserves could hold the key to the outcome of the meeting.
“If we can start the meeting fast we will be in control, and if all of us have a good day I think we can do it, although it’s always hard to say,” he said.
“If the reserves can kick in and do a good job with a few points we will have a good chance, but we all need to do good to make that happen.”
