BIRMINGHAM 31 ROBINS 23, ABANDONED

Monday June 02, 2014
SWINDON'S Elite League trip to Birmingham on Monday was cut short - just one race from reaching a result!

Rain started to fall after five heats and it was no surprise when the plug was pulled after nine heats with the Brummies leading 31-23.

Robins skipper Troy Batchelor admitted it was the right decision although disappointing for fans and TV viewers alike.

He said: "We are here and we want to race and put on a show for the fans. It's disappointing but the decision was correct.

"I thought after the first delay we had every chance of getting through to Heat 15 because the rain stopped - but then it came back and there was no way we could continue.

"Hopefully we will be fine on Thursday when we face Leicester at home."

BIRMINGHAM 31: Danny King 9, Daniel Nermark 6, Paul Starke 5+1, Simon Lambert 3+2, Bartosz Zmarzlik 3, Nico Covatti 3, Ben Barker 2+1.
SWINDON 23: Steve Worrall 6, Simon Gustafsson 5+2, Peter Kildemand 4, Nick Morris 3+1, Dakota North 3, Troy Batchelor 2, Nathan Greaves 0.
