Need to go before my car gets locked in. Bye.

10:56pm

In other news, before I get kicked out for loitering, Nathan Greaves will almost certainly be out of tomorrow's clash with Lakeside with a thumb ligament injury.

No guest as of yet.

This Is Wiltshire: Robins’ boss Alun Rossiter gives debutant Nathan Greaves a pep talk

wickite says

6 from batch and we would still be in this - captain - what a joke he is - let me guess his reaction "one of those nights?" - yes just like for Australia and at cardiff etc etc etc etc zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Batchelor was ill this evening it turns out. Still would expect more but maybe a little more understandable?

10:48pm

Sorry for the delay.

Reaction from Alun Rossiter now, who was not best pleased.

This Is Wiltshire: Alun Rossiter looking pensive at Monday''s meet in Birmingham

“It doesn’t matter who it is, we should perform better than that and I’m disappointed by the performance from some of the boys tonight,” he said.

“Troy did come to me before the meeting and said he wasn’t feeling well, so that could be part of it, but it wasn’t a good performance from everyone. Peter did his job, Dak did his job and Stevie did alright but the rest struggled a little.

“We seem to struggle down here and I don’t know why, I really don’t know why.

“We’ve got Lakeside next and it’s a home meeting which we need to win. We need to be taking maximum points from all of our home meetings now if we’re going to make the play-offs.”

 

9:59pm

Reaction to come.

9:51pm

PIRATES WIN 56-35

9:51pm

Heat 15: Janowski, Ward, Kildemand, North R; 61.07 - 5-1 (56-35)

The Poole duo have the max sorted by turn three.

9:47pm

9:41pm Wed 6 Aug 14

lawnmower man says

1 Point from batch wot a joke hes suspose to be a heat leader wish we kept hans or bought doyley in

9:46pm

Janowski, Ward, North, Kildemand for heat 15.

9:45pm

Heat 14: Milik, Newman, Morris, S Worrall; 61.72 - 5-1 (51-34)

Maximum from the tapes. Morris chases Newman to the line and hit the fence after the race is finish.

9:37pm

He's bruised apparently but no more it seems
 

9:37pm

Worrall takes Greaves' place in heat 14, as usual. Hope Nathan's ok.

9:34pm

Heat 13: Janowski, Kildemand, Ward, Batchelor; 60.37  - 4-2 (46-33)

Ward’s last corner move on Batchelor earns another home heat advantage.

9:29pm

Heat 12: Grajczonek, North, S Worrall, Newman; 61.0 – 3-3 (42-31)

Grajczonek wins from the tapes.

9:28pm

9:18pm Wed 6 Aug 14

archeroo says

Re your comment of there wasn't much choice as guest. That may be true but Richie Worrall has been shocking the last month so it was terrible booking... Again. We are terrible at booking guests.. Fact

Who would you have had though?

9:27pm

Newman in for Compton.
 

9:25pm

Heat 11: Janowski, Kildemand (tac), Morris, Pawlicki FX; 60.50 – 3-5 (39-28)

Another incident as Pawlicki slows and is thumped into the fence by Morris, with the Pirates rider excluded as both walk away. In the re-run, with Kildemand in black and white, Janowski rides a great first turn despite being given a huge bump, to limit the damage.

9:20pm

The result of our earlier poll looks to be coming true, unless Kildemand can do something about it here.

9:16pm

Pawlicki is up to a big cheer.

9:15pm

Pawlicki excluded and still down, Morris walks away.

9:15pm

Another big hit as Pawlicki slows and is hit by Morris, with the Pirates rider tossed along the air fence like a rag doll. Medics there.

9:14pm

Kildemand goes in black and white

9:11pm

Heat 10: Ward, Grajczonek, Batchelor, R Worrall; 60.31 – 5-1 (36-23)

Ward basically rides across the grass to pass R Worrall and then scythes through Batchelor.

9:08pm

Back at tapes as we resume,

9:08pm

9:04pm Wed 6 Aug 14

Bristols says

Surely we could have got a better guest then Ritchie, bad mistake there.

In all honestly there was not an awful lot to choose from. Gustafsson's average is 6.13 so Worrall was probably the best option. Barker, Lambert, Thorssell, Lahti?

9:05pm

Greaves withdrawn from the meeting but he would probably have been replaced by Worrall for ride four anyway. Hope he's alright.
 

8:56pm

Was that an intentional move from Poole to stop the tactical from being used? Who knows.

8:55pm

The doctor's been called back to see Greaves, worryingly, so racing suspended.
 

8:54pm

Heat nine: S Worrall, Compton, Newman R, Greaves FX; 61.56 - 2-3 (31-22)

Big hit as Greaves slides off on his own and is thumped into by Compton. Both walk away but Greaves is excluded. Newman fails on the line in the re-run as Worrall easily beats Compton in a match race.

8:47pm

Racing suspended for a little as the doctor is looking at Greaves

8:44pm

A bit of work on the track after that incident.

8:40pm

Obviously he is excluded too.

8:40pm

Greaves walked away holding his shoulder.

8:40pm

Bad crash as Greaves comes off alone, Compton lays it down to try and avoid him but can only thump into the back of Nathan. Both are up.
 

8:37pm

8:36pm Wed 6 Aug 14

wickite says

The only thing Batch looks like winning is the toss - why oh why didnt we retain Hans?

8:37pm

One chance and one chance only for the Robins to use black and white. That will be in heat 10.

8:35pm

Heat eight: Milik, Pawlicki, North, R Worrall; 60.34 – 5-1 (29-19)

North’s winning run ends with the Pirates pairing far too quick.

8:31pm

Morris said he can't afford to get beaten by reserves now he's moved to number four, but it's happened at the first time of asking. Newman's a good rider though.

8:28pm

Heat seven: Newman, Morris, Grajczonek, Greaves; 61.62 – 4-2 (24-18)

Morris twitching at the start his time forces Grajczonek through the tapes, but the Aussie can’t repeat Janowski’s heroics.

8:23pm

Grajczonek off 15 this time.

8:21pm

Morris moves on the line again, with Grajczonek this time breaking the tapes.

8:18pm

Heat six: Kildemand, Pawlicki, Milik, Batchelor; 60.03 – 3-3 (20-16)

Batchelor rides a good first turn to allow Kildemand through to take the win, but the Aussie slips to the back in a shared heat.

8:14pm

Heat five: Ward, Janowski, Morris, R Worrall; 60.62 - 5-1 (17-13)

Morris’s movement at the start forces Janowski to drop too early and break the tapes and, going off 15 metres, the Pole works his way superbly through both Robins for a 5-1.

8:11pm

Looks like Alun Rossiter is taking a closer look at heat 5, from the centre green. I reckon he wants a look at Morris.
 

8:11pm

Janowski is excluded and is now going off 15m.

8:07pm

Morris moves, forcing Janowski through the tapes.

8:04pm

8:02pm

Heat four: North, Milik, S Worrall, Compton; 60.88 – 2-4 (12-12)
Brilliant first corner from North sees him round Milik and take the win despite the Czech throwing the bike at the Robins man in every corner.

7:57pm

Heat three: Janowski, Pawlicki, Worrall, Batchelor; 60.63 - 5-1 (10-8)

Strong turn one from both Pirates muscles out Batchelor, who eventually pulls up.

7:54pm

Encouraging from Greaves. Very poor gate but rode well for little reward.

7:53pm

Heat two: Newman, S Worrall, Compton, Greaves; 61.38 – 4-2 (5-7)

Both Robins miss the start but Worrall does well to round Compton. Greaves looks fast but can’t pass.

7:50pm

Pretty petulant from Ward there if you ask me.

7:50pm

7:49pm

Red lights on with Newman rollling. Straight back round to the start.

7:46pm

Heat one: North, Kildemand, Grajczonek, Ward R; 60.66 – 1-5 (1-5)

Kildemand gives Ward a massive bump in turn one and the Robins have a 5-1. Ward barely makes an effort to leave the track after stopping but the ref allows it to continue.

7:43pm

Riders at the tapes for heat one

7:37pm

Introductions done and we're ready to go.

7:34pm

7:34pm

Troy Batchelor wins the toss and takes one and three in heat one for the Robins
 

7:33pm

He knows nothing...but I think he might be right.

7:31pm

Here come the riders, it's parade time.

7:27pm

7:26pm

7:26pm

7:25pm

7:24pm

As many of you have noticed, yes, the Pirates do have a new reserve this evening.

7:22pm Wed 6 Aug 14

Di kanny oh says

One minute Compton was too high up the fast track list gets injured and somehow has moved down the list to 25th thus allowing Poole to sign him talk about corruption of the system and exploiting this fast track riders situation I believe teams should not be allowed to keep changing teams unless one member is injured, speedway is a farce and complete joke at present and needs a complete overhaul.

Hope we ride under protest at the rule bending by Poole now they have signed Benji Compton, even their own supporters are asking how they have got away with it!!!

deano... says

our line up on here is missing batch but saying that he always goes missing when were at poole

All sorted, good spot. Hopefully he does turn up...

7:21pm

One change for the Robins, with Richie Worrall in for absent Swede Simon Gustafsson.

This Is Wiltshire: Simon Gustafsson will be given time by Robins' boss Alun Rossiter

7:17pm

It's a nice sunny evening here in Dorset so hopefully we're set for a good meeting.

7:12pm

Good evening everyone and welcome to the Adver's live coverage of Swindon Robins' trip to Poole.

I'd love to see us turn the Pirates over, but they looked very impressive at Wolverhampton on Monday, and I think the Robins will do well to score 35!

No good crying over spilt milk - we knew we were going to get beaten.
Rosco you have commented on the radio this morning saying you were not happy with some of the boys performance, we as supporters have been telling you this for months. Let's face facts, if we actually get in the play offs , it will be a miracle. I thought I read somewhere that Morris had new machinery and a new mechanic, or was I dreaming - they certainly have not turned up to the matches. Let's hope we can have a good match tonight with some positive vibes.
Seeing as there are not many matches left this season, Rosco
I suggest you start trying to build a new team for next year as we certainly do not want at least half or more of the riders returning next season
