10:33pm

It sadly wasn't to be for the Robins this evening, who didn't provide a heat advantage after heat six before being hit with three 5-1s to end the meeting.

Time to bounce back at Lynn on Wednesday night.

See you then.

(Don't forget, full report and reaction in tomorrow's paper)

10:24pm

Former Robins reserve Dan Greenwood has his say, presumably relating to Nathan Greaves score tonight.

10:14pm

Speaking afterwards, Troy Batchelor was upbeat despite struggling all night and just put his troubles down to an off night.

This Is Wiltshire: Troy  Batchelor

TROY BATCHELOR

“I’m only human and I still had fun,” he said.

“The guys were fast and with the new race format we race their top guys every time so it’s hard and I had a bit of an off night. That can happen but I’ll be back.

“I’m racing in Sweden on Tuesday so I’ll have a good one there and come back on form. You’re only human and you have a bad one sometimes.

“I changed bikes for my last race and was out the front until Kildy crashed, and then I was all on my own and it’s hard. I felt like I had some pace in the last one so it’s not all bad.”

10:13pm

Report filed from the Monmore car park, so time for some reaction.

9:21pm

Heat 15: Woffinden, Pawlicki, Kildemand, Morris; 55.46 – 5-1 (52-38)
Wolves take the maximum from the gate which secures all the points.

9:15pm

Pawlicki, Woffy, Kildemand and N Morris in heat 15. Wolves off one and three.

9:12pm

Heat 14: Proctor, A Morris, Worrall, Gustafsson; 56.74 – 5-1 (47-37)
Robins gate on a 5-1 but it’s the hosts who take the max as Proctor wins easily and Morris passes Worrall twice in a good battle.

9:08pm

No surprises as Worrall takes Greaves' place in heat 14

9:08pm

Heat 13: Woffinden, Pawlicki, Batchelor, Kildemand X; 54.95 – 5-1 (42-36)
Kildemand gives Woffinden no room to breath as the world champ is forced to lay the bike down, and is excluded. Batch can’t make an impact in the re-run.

9:03pm

Right decision I'd say. A huge locker from Kildemand left Tai with no option. Imagine Rosco's not happy though.

9:01pm

Red lights on and Kildemand is excluded after leaving Woffinden on the floor

9:00pm

Battle of the big guns in heat 13. Much more needed from Batch.

8:59pm

Heat 10: Woffinden, Morris, Thorssell, Batchelor; 54.81 – 4-2 (30-30)
After initially pushing Tai for the win, Morris has to hold off Thorsell on the line to limit the damage.

8:29pm

Worrall gates and wins as Greaves is well adrift.

8:22pm

Heat eight: Proctor, North, Morris, Wells;55.79 – 3-3 (23-25)

Great gate from North for another win while Worrall does well to ease his bike round minus his steel shoe.

7:54pm

North needs to back it up in this heat though

Decent start from the Robins, this. Good early wins for North and Morris.

7:51pm

Heat three: Morris, Wells, Batchelor, Pawlicki;55.60 – 2-4 (8-10)
Great first corner from Morris sees him cut back and take the lead by turn three, eventually holding onto it.

7:47pm

Heat two: Morris, Worrall, Jacobs, Greaves R; 56.88 – 4-2 (6-6)

He sure has!

7:17pm

Of course the Robins face the world champion this evening, Britain's very own Tai Woffinden. What an ambassador he's been for the sport in this country over the winter.

TAI WOFFINDEN, WORLD CHAMPION

Same score as Friday night at Cov?

7:14pm

PREDICTIONS

I'm going for the Robins to snatch a draw in heat 15 this evening. 47-43 I reckon.

7:11pm

Greaves and his reserve partner Steve Worrall are both regulars here at Monmore, given they ride for Cradley in the National League, so the expectation is there that they would do well.

This Is Wiltshire: Swindon Robins rider Steve Worrall

STEVE WORRALL

7:10pm

Tonight sees a debut for youngster Nathan Greaves who comes into the team at reserve in place of Dan Greenwood. He has raw talent but don't expect too much too soon I would say.

NATHAN GREAVES

He certainly is showing promise, though.

Well thank you Troy and Simon for giving this match away - what's your excuses ? Everyone else really put an effort in - Rosco one more needs to be shown the door, enough is enough - if you want to get the crowds back to the home meetings, then you need to drop the price to £12 for adults and all minors up to and including the age of 16 no charge.

Close match may be not, did not realize Batch was not going to turn up and Gustaffsons days must be numbered new engine and getting beat by draft riders including Worrall who was superb yet again. Friggen typical Woffinden been struggling up to now then comes back with a bang. Another big defeat Wednesday at Kings Lynn I'm afraid.
