ALUN Rossiter has urged his Swindon Robins to put in a professional performance against Lakeside tonight to keep the pressure on Poole at the top of the table.

Swindon find themselves five points behind the Pirates at the top of the Elite League, and need to win their two remaining meetings and hope Poole slip up at Birmingham on Monday night if they are to claim top spot going into the play-offs.

But to stand any chance of earning the right to pick their play-off semi-final opponents the Robins need to take maximum points tonight.

Rossiter said: “I thought we were thoroughly professional in beating Belle Vue here last Thursday and we need a similar performance against Lakeside,” he said.

“We were all disappointed to miss out on a league point at Poole on Monday, we could and should have got it but it just slipped away from us.

“Now we have to be professional against Lakeside and claim the full three points.”
