ALUN Rossiter believes another break in the schedule will not be the worst thing for his Swindon Robins side.

The Robins have only contested three meetings since May 6 – with two of those coming on Bank Holiday as they faced a double-header against Poole Pirates in the SGB Premiership.

Swindon now have another 10-day lay-off between fixtures as they do not race again until hosting King’s Lynn Stars on June 6.

On Monday, the Robins were beaten in the away meeting at Poole and could only share a draw back on home shale at the Abbey Stadium.

However, results were not the only issue for team manager Rossiter.

Tobiasz Musielak was restricted to just one ride on the day as he suffered injuries in a fall in his first race at Wimborne Road – missing the evening fixture at Blunsdon altogether.

Skipper Jason Doyle then sat out his last race at the Abbey after suffering pain in his shoulder.

Australian Doyle had earlier taken matters into his own hands to help with track work at the Abbey, with the riders dissatisfied with the conditions heading into turn one.

Rossiter is hopeful that another bit of time off will help his riders and home track get back into top condition.

“At the moment, with the way the boys are all getting injured, it is probably a bonus to have another bit of a break again,” said Rossiter.

“Jason seemed to aggravate his shoulder, but I don’t think it is too bad, and Tobiasz just needs time – he needs to recover and get treatment.

“Fingers crossed that because of the break we have coming up now, it will mean Tobiasz doesn’t miss any meetings.

“We can try to get the first corner sorted out as well. The riders didn’t like it on Monday, but I am sure we will get it sorted out quite quickly and it will be fine.”

There was one big positive for Swindon from Bank Holiday Monday’s double-header against the Pirates – that being the performance of new recruit Rasmus Jensen.

The Dane has been signed to ride at number two for Rossiter’s side and capped his first outing in Robins colours with a 14+1 points haul in the evening meeting at the Abbey.

Rossiter said: “It bodes well if Rasmus can keep doing that. It means we will have a strong top five and the good thing about him is that he can ride most tracks.”

Away from the Abbey, Swindon’s Zach Wajtknecht has pulled out of tonight's British Championships semi-final.

Robins reserve Wajtkencht was due to be in the 16-man field at Redcar but withdrew yesterday.
