That's all for tonight, we're back next Thursday when the Robins host Leicester.
Don't forget you can read a full report and reaction tomorrow as well as more speedway in Monday's Tapes-Up
A little reaction before it's time to go. Alun Rossiter not happy with a point but doesn't blame Kildemand for his heat 13 crash.
“It’s points dropped again, it’s not good enough,” the Robins boss said after the meeting.
“We should have at least taken three points, minimum, it was there for the taking for us, so we’re bitterly disappointed.
“Kildemand lost it in heat 13 where the front wheel went over the concrete and it washed away, that can happen, but it was a hard race and he and Scotty were fighting going into the corner.
“I can’t blame him but he did give me a heart attack going into the final race but he managed to pull it back so we have to try and be happy with a point now.”
A point it is for the Robins. Time for some reaction.
KING'S LYNN STARS 48 SWINDON ROBINS 42
Heat 15: Iversen, Batchelor, Kildemand, Nicholls; 60.40 – 3-3 (48-42)
Two great gates see the Robins pair settle behind Iversen but, when Kildemand slipped and was passed by Nicholls it looked as though the point was gone. However, the Dane fought back to secure a dramatic point on the final lap.
Iversen, Nicholls, Batchelor and Kildemand in heat 15. Still hopes of a point here
Heat 14: Kerr, Lambert, Gustafsson, Worrall R; 61.11 – 5-1 (45-39)
With Lynn already on a max, Worrall and Gustafsson get far too close to each other and the Robins’ chances of winning are gone.
Heat 13: Iversen, Nicholls, Batchelor, Kildemand FX; 59.12 – 5-1 (40-38)
After Kildemand is excluded for barging inside Nicholls in turn one, the Robins skipper can’t quite better Nicholls to stop him backing up Iversen to give the Stars their first lead of the night.
Kildemand looks to barge up the inside going into turn one and hits the dirt before Nicholls run right into the back of him. The Robins man is okay, but excluded.
I think Rosco's just been on the phone to the referee to complain about the start of that heat, but looking at the replay here in the box it appears it was actually Worrall who moved first.
Heat 12: Porsing, North, Kerr, Worrall; 60.10 – 4-2 (35-37)
North completely missed the start but does really well to battle back and push Porsing all the way.
Heat 11: Kildemand, Nicholls, Schlein, Gustafsson; 61.32 – 3-3 (31-35)
Classic Kildemand as the Dane winds it up and barges his way through Nicholls. Great ride, but Gustafsson can’t join him.
Back on track now for heat 11. Five big heats to come.

Is Batch getting tired now ? needs to find more speed - team talk needed before it goes down the same path as Monday evening
Interval time and the Robins still lead despite supplying only three race winners so far.
Heat 10: Iversen, Morris, Porsing, Batchelor; 58.72 – 4-2 (28-32)
Batchelor passes Porsing in turn two but the Stars man bites back to support his teammate and race winner Iversen.
Heat nine: Kerr, Worrall, Rose, Greaves F; 60.51 – 4-2 (24-30)
Worrall makes the gate but is passed before Greaves slips off while defending third. He up and clears the track.
A very, very big heat nine coming up. 3-3 will do just fine.
Heat eight: North, Morris, Schlein, Lambert; 60.22 – 1-5 (20-28)
Robins gate on a 5-1 and do well to hold of Schlein, who never really challenges Morris.
Heat seven: Porsing, Gustafsson, Greaves, Rose FX; 59.51 – 3-3 (19-23)
After Gustafsson pushes Rose wide in original staging of the race, Swindon’s Swede makes turn one ahead of Porsing but the Lynn man gets the drive coming out of two to get the win.
Rose is excluded.
Red lights on as Rose hits the fence under pressure from Gustafsson.
Heat six: Batchelor, Kildemand, Schelin, Lambert; 58.97 – 5-1 (16-20)
Schlein makes a great gate from the outside but Batchelor takes him wide to allow himself and Kildemand through for a max.
Heat five: Iversen, Nicholls, Morris, Gustafsson; 58.54 – 5-1 (15-15)
Gustafsson missed the gate and never gets back in touch. Morris looks quick but can’t catch Nicholls.
Heat four: Kerr, North, Worrall, Lambert; 59.77 – 3-3 (10-14)
North does all he can to try and get past Kerr but it’s not enough.
Looking forward to watching Lambert in the next one.
Heat three: Batchelor, Morris, Schlein, Nicholls; 60.11 – 1-5 (7-11)
Two great starts from the Robins and it’s the first maximum of the evening.
Heat two: Kerr, Worrall, Greaves, Rose R; 61.12 - 3-3 (6-6)
Worrall sends Rose very wide in the second visit to turns one and two, forcing the Stars man off, but he picks himself up and walks off.
Heat one: Iversen, Kildemand, North, Porsing; 58.45 – 3-3 (3-3)
North almost topples over in turn two but holds on to beat Porsing for third.
Riders on track, here we go!
I can hear the sound of bikes. Nearly ready to get going.

I feel we will get hammered tonight sorry to say KL reserves are far too strong and were against the best team in the league by a mile. Still good luck Robins I think your going to need it.
Not the biggest crowd I've ever seen at the Norfolk Arena but I guess that's understandable given it's on TV.
Slight delay here while we wait for the sun to go down a little. Nearly there.
@tapesup1949 Cheering the Robins on from home! Think it might be last heat decider! #adverspeedway— @tapesup1949 14 May 2014
A member of the track team reversed over the two-minute timer at the start line earlier, so doubt that will be working tonight!
Very nearly ready for the off here at the Norfolk Arena. Stars have gates one and three in heat one.
7:25pm Wed 14 May 14
Id like to say an away win by 2 but i havent got that feeling tonight gustaffsson isnt performing and you only need 1 more in the top 5 not performing and were beat i hope grieves can pick up a few points very hard for the young lad though.i think premier speedway was more enjoyable at swindon than the elite league.
That was an attempt to show you the parade, live, but it didn't really work.
Stick with Sky Sports if I were you.
Gustafsson will be up against both Lewis Kerr and Lewis Rose tonight, but will also have to deal with National League graduate Robert Lambert, who rides in the Lynn top five. Another potentially embarrassing obstacle.
If there's one Swindon rider under scrutiny this evening it has to be Simon Gustafsson.
The Swede has produced a couple of decent performances in a Robins suit but has all too often been beaten by the opposition reserves.
That can't go on much longer and a good performance is needed, although Rosco has already admitted any replacement may be hard to find.
From walking the pits earlier it looked as if Troy Batchelor won the toss and elected to pick the heat 15 gates, so the Stars will choose heat one.
For anyone who has wondered what the referee's control panel looks like. Might put the tapes up. #exciting. http://t.co/2HAA24MmX1— @AndyWarren_ 14 May 2014
