10:05pm

Here are the thoughts of Alun Rossiter following tonight's meeting.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Alun Rossiter looking pensive at Monday''s meet in Birmingham

ALUN ROSSITER

“Peter seems off at the moment and he’s struggling over here, whether it’s him or the bikes I don’t know. I don’t think it’s tiredness at the moment like it was before but he’s got a couple of days off before we ride King’s Lynn on Thursday.

“It was nice in the pits tonight because they did so well in Denmark in the GP and we needed to bounce off that one, but we couldn’t beat their top two.

“Dak would have had seven points if he’d stayed on when he came off, and Nick worked hard but didn’t have an awful lot of confidence in his bikes.”

9:24pm

Reaction to come.

9:22pm

Heat 15: Woffinden, Batchelor, Pawlicki, Kildemand; 55.33 – 4-2 (51-41)
Tai takes the win to secure all the points for the hosts. Batch chases hard but no luck.

9:17pm

Pawlick, Tai, Batch and PK in heat 15. Wolves chose one and three.

9:14pm

A heat advantage in 15 gets a point for Robins, but with Wolves having choice of gates and Pawlicki and Tai unbeaten, that seems unlikely.

9:13pm

Heat 14: Gustafsson, Worrall, Proctor, Perry; 56.77 – 1-5 (47-39)
Two great gates give the Robins some hope.

9:08pm

Heat 13: Pawlicki, Woffinden, Batchelor, Kildemeand R; 56.20 – 5-1 (46-34)
No room in turns one and two for the Robins and even a point is as good as gone now.

9:04pm

Heat 12: Thorssell, North, Worrall, Jacobs; 56.30 – 3-3 (41-33)
Worrall makes a good start but Thorssell gets him in turn one.

9:00pm

Worrall in for Greaves in heat 12

Really don't know why I get my hopes up every week. Always at least one rider has a stinker and rarely do we get a rider having a blinder. Consistently Inconsistent

8:48pm

Ten minute interval now, with the Robins left with plenty to do from here.

8:47pm

Heat 11: Pawlicki,  Gustafsson, Kildemand, Wells; 55.22 – 3-3 (38-30)
Kildemand’s moving at the start but only serves to punish himself as Pawlicki wins.

8:44pm

Heat 10: Woffinden, Morris, Batchelor , Thorssell; 55.42 – 3-3 (35-27)
There’s no stopping Tai from the gate but Morris takes Thorssell all the way to the fence in turn one to at least secure a share of the spoils.

8:40pm

Heat nine: Worrall, Perry, Greaves, Jacobs; 55.88 – 2-4 (32-24)
Great start from Worrall is enough for the win, with Greaves backing up in third. Jacobs falls while last but remounts.

8:35pm

Heat eight: Wells, Proctor, Morris, North; 55.97 – 5-1 (30-20)
Morris gives his all to pass the Wolves pair but they leave him no room following two good starts.

8:28pm

Heat seven: Thorssell, Worrall, Gustafsson, Perry; 55.86 – 3-3 (25-19)
Messy first corner but the Robins come out of it with a 3-3.

8:24pm

That was certainly needed!

8:24pm

Heat six: Kildemand (tac), Batchelor, Wells, Proctor; 55.20 – 1-8 (22-16)
Kildemand goes in black and white and it works. He swoops around the outside in turns one and two and is joined by Batch for an 8-1.

8:21pm

Kildemand goes in black and white

8:20pm

Heat five: Pawlicki, Woffinden, Morris, Gustafsson; 55.36 - 5-1 – (21-8)
Both Wolves jump out the gate for a 5-1, although Morris is quick in third without being able to pass.

This has got all the makings of another drubbing. The Robins cant keep having 1 rider v two!

8:13pm

Heat four: Proctor, Jacobs, North FX, Greaves FX; awarded – 5-0 (16-7)
Greaves and then North both go down on their own in two separate stagings of the race and a 5-0 is awarded.

8:11pm

He walks away but is excluded. 5-0 awarded though.

8:10pm

North gets really out of shape on his own and takes tumble and is very, very, lucky to avoid being clattered by both Proctor and Jacobs

8:05pm

Though he has obviously been excluded

8:04pm

Red lights on again as Greaves gets out of shape and hit's the fence. His foot is stuck under his bike but he seems fine.

8:01pm

Heat three: Pawlicki, Batchelor, Wells, Morris; 54.48 – 4-2 (11-7)
Pawlicki wins by a straight, with Morris struggling to keep the bike down at the back.

7:53pm

Red lights on in heat three after tapes don't go up properly

7:51pm

Heat two: Worrall, Jacobs, Perry, Greaves; 55.97  - 3-3 (7-5)
Loads of movement at the start but the ref lets it go, with Worrall winning by a mile. Greaves just about on the pace but couldn’t make a real impression.

7:48pm

Two Cradley reserves who should know this place well up for the Robins next.

7:48pm

Good decision from North to stay down then, as Robins are two points better off than they could have been had he left the track. Felt his knee a little but hope he's okay.

7:47pm

Heat one: Woffinden, Kildemand, Thorssell, North FX; 54.41 – 4-2 (4-2)
After North is excluded for hitting the deck in the first staging, Woffinden beats a rolling Kildemand away from the tapes to win the re-run.

7:43pm

Both Robins came together in turn one which forced Kildemand to the back, and the Dane almost took North out the corner before he eventually went down. Another chance here.

7:41pm

North hits the deck in the first bend of lap two and is excluded.

7:38pm

Two minutes are on and we're ready to go.

7:36pm

Not long until heat one here, Woffinden, Thorssell, Kildemand and North.

7:34pm

Now we have 14 bikes roaring round the track, which is nice to see. And hear.
