SWINDON Robins have been boosted by the news that reserve Nathan Greaves has declared himself fit for tonight's Elite League clash with Lakeside.

Greaves crashed out of last night's defeat at Poole in Heat nine, leaving him with a thumb ligament injury, but after inititally ruling himself out of action the young reserve is fit afterall.

Simon Gustafsson also returns, having missed last night's loss at Poole to take part in the qualifying round for the Swedish Championship.

Spot on. It's easy to knock Nathan, but he's trying hard (maybe too hard). If he gets any points tonight, I'm sure that will be more than any draft rider lower in the rankings would be likely to get. I just hope last night's below par performance is put behind us and the crowd turn out in force. This side was never, in my opinion, likely to do better than make the play-offs, and with the home meetings we have, that is still within our reach. Lakeside only have four home meetings left, two of which are against Poole, and we have six, all of which we are capable of winning. Robins to win by 12 tonight.
