SWEDE Simon Gustafsson is hopeful his side can right a wrong when they visit Wolverhampton tonight.

On their last visit to Monmore Green the Robins let a lead slip before missing out on a point in the West Midlands.

However, since then, the Robins have won away at Leicester, although they did allow the Lions back into the contest late on, but Gustafsson is hopeful he and his teammates have the right mindset now.

“We’ve done it a couple of times this year and we want to avoid it now,” he said.

“It’s very easy to say during the meeting that we’ve got it in the bag but when we think like that it’s very easy to go shakey and afraid of doing the same thing again.

“I had a chat with Rosco after Leicester meeting and we talked about taking each race at a time and that’s what we’ve got to do.

“I’ve been guilty of letting my own standards slip late in meetings too so those things go together I think.”

Since last facing the Robins, world champion Tai Woffinden has enjoyed an upturn in form, but Gustafsson isn’t afraid of the man currently sitting second in the GP standings.

“One man can’t carry a whole team so I think we have a good chance,” he said.

“We let it slip last time but we can’t be thinking about that.

“Stevie and Nathan should do well there too because they ride for another team at the track so I think we will be okay.”
