SWINDON Robins face their second SGB Premiership fixture of the season on Bank Holiday Monday when Peterborough Panthers visit the Abbey Stadium (7.30pm).

The Robins picked up a useful point from their season opener at Wolverhampton Wolves last month, going down 46-44 at Monmore Green.

However, attentions have turned to the Premiership Supporters’ Cup since then, with Alun Rossiter’s side riding five times in that competition during their extended break from league action.

Swindon have been in impressive form during their cup exploits, winning twice, drawing once and picking up a point in each of their two defeats.

Despite their strong start to the season, team manager Rossiter says Swindon will not overlook the threat the Panthers pose at Blunsdon this evening.

“I’ve been very happy with the majority of our performances so far, but there will be no under-estimating Peterborough ahead of this meeting,” said Rossiter.

“The strength of their reserves shows how tough it could be and there will be a lot of their riders wanting to come back here and put on a show.

“But we’re looking forward to getting back on our own track, which is only going to get better and better, and hopefully we’ll get another big Bank Holiday crowd to cheer the boys on.”

Peterborough are newcomers to the top-flight this season, having last raced at this level of British speedway in 2013.

Tonight’s meeting features the return to the Abbey of several former Robins riders in the Panthers’ ranks, two of which have tasted league title success as part of a Swindon side.

Peterborough captain Hans Andersen led the Robins to the Elite League title in 2012, and Bradley Wilson-Dean was a member of the victorious SGB Premiership squad two years ago.

Swindon are at full strength for the meeting, with David Lampart back at number two after missing last Monday’s cup match away at King’s Lynn Stars.

SWINDON: Jason Doyle, Dawid Lampart, Tobiasz Musielak, Adam Ellis, Troy Batchelor, Zach Wajtknecht, James Shanes.

PETERBOROUGH: Hans Andersen, Lasse Bjerre, Ben Barker, Charles Wright, Rohan Tungate, Aaron Summers, Bradley Wilson-Dean.
