SWINDON slipped to their second successive home defeat with a 47-43 reverse against Lakeside on Thursday night.

The Robins were hammered by Poole last time out at the Abbey Stadium, but this was a huge improvement on that result with Nicolai Klindt once again showing some good individual form, top-scoring with 11+1.

Cory Gathercole contributed with 9+1 and Scott Nicholls with 9, but Maciej Janowski had a rare off-night and could only manage 4+1.

The Essex side led from the start with former Robin Lee Richardson featuring in an opening race 5-1 and he had another four victories to finish the night with 15 from six starts.

A Gathercole and Janowski maximum in Heat 13 kept Swindon in the hunt trailing by just four-points with two races remaining, but the Hammers held on and Ronnie Russell’s men remain at the foot of the Elite League table.

SWINDON 43: Nikolai Klindt 11+1, Cory Gathercole 9+1, Scott Nicholls 9, Simon Stead 7, Maciej Janowski 4+1, Jesper B Monberg 3+1, Justin Sedgmen 0

LAKESIDE 47: Lee Richardson 15, Peter Ljung 10+1, Stuart Robson 7+2, Piotr Swiderski 7, Kauko Nieminen 6+1, Robert Mear 2+1, Adam Shields R/R
