    Wow, very happy to eat humble pie after my prediction earlier today, but doesn't that just sum up the frustration of being a Robins fan this season? Sloppy home defeats at home to Poole & Wolverhampton, and big leads thrown away on our travels, and then they blow away the league leaders, and still with only 6 riders getting the points. Now, can we take that form on to Coventry tomorrow and pick up the four points and just maybe that play-off push could still be a reality?

    Best meeting of the season by a mile KL are a force no doubt but our boys wanted it and were by far the better team second half of the meeting and great to see us come on strong instead of fading at the end. What ever Roscoe said to them at half way point it worked and a fantastic climax . The second half was excellent and boy the young kids were brilliant and very entertaining 6 excellent heats and need more of this after meetings. Tonight was excellent value for money and made a nice change and Charles Wright was an excellent guest for our points machine Steve Worrall and got a massive 9 points so well done to the lad. Have to say I and many were writing off Batch after just 2 points from two rides but he was superb after that and shut us lot up on the back straight. Lets hope we can take this to the next home match against Poole.

    Sorry Rosco, I know nothing after 46 years of supporting the Robins! Brilliant meeting, decent crowd, lovely weather and I even had a rather expensive cider to celebrate!

    Fair play to Batch tonight. Real captains role tonight after a disappointing first 2 rides. Made a difference when it mattered. Great team ride in heat 11 to help Nick round and then to win heat 13 maintained the Robins momentum. Hopefully that form continues for the rest of the season. Well done to Batch and the team for a great win!
