SWINDON ROBINS: Kildemand takes tactical approach
6:00am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in By Andy Warren, Deputy sports editor, email@example.com, @AndyWarren_
FLYING Dane Peter Kildemand has insisted the Robins need to be ruthless in the use of their tactical rides going into tonight’s second leg.
Swindon stormed into an 18-point lead in Monday’s first leg at Blunsdon, before Chris Holder and Darcy Ward hauled their advantage in with successive tactical victories in heats 10 and 11.
While it remains to be seen whether or not the Robins will get the chance to return the favour tonight, Kildemand believes it is vital they take their chances if they arrive and give the Pirates a taste of their own medicine. “I don’t know if it is enough, but we worked hard and we have to keep our heads high,” he said.
“They used their tactical rides well against us so we need to do the same if we get the chance to use ours in the second leg.
“I don’t think the score really shows quite what really happened in the meeting, and we need to make sure we do well at Poole.”
Kildemand rode every inch of the Blunsdon track on Monday night as he gave Ward and Holder a run for their money with an all-action display, and the Dane enjoys racing against two riders with a similar style to his own.
“It was good because they are good riders and we had good races,” he said.
“I like to ride the wide line and they do too, and we will keep our heads high and try to do it in the second leg.”
