Eastbourne lost the toss and Robins will take gates 2 and 4
Here is the toss
The riders are going around on their parade lap
Swindon currently sit in eighth place in the Elite League table four points behind Belle Vue, the only side the Robins have beaten this season
It's another sunny evening here at Blunsdon, let's hope that Robins will be just as bright coming out of the gates.
Rossiter in tonight's programme on releasing Klindt: "It's a shame I can't give Nicolai more time to sort things out, especially as he's a nice lad, but it's a move we need to make in our current position.
"I had to do something, and it also keeps everyone else on their toes and shows that if we have to make a change we will do."
After tonight's meet, Swindon will travel to face the Lakeside Hammers tomorrow night and they will be without Batchelor, who is away in Poland for the GP, and Steve Worrall.
Away from the track there has been some great news with Darryl Ritchings has been released from hospital.
Will Rossiter's switching of Batchelor and Morris work?
How do you think new signing Dakota North will get on?
There will be pressure on him to perform after Alun Rossiter brought him in after releasing Nicolai Klindt.
