SWINDON extended their winning home run with a hard fought 47-43 victory over Coventry.

The win means the Robins are now unbeaten in their last six meetings at The Abbey.

The home side fought back from an early four point deficit to go on and win by four points themselves in front of a bumper Blunsdon crowd.

Team manager Alun Rossiter said: "The track was different to how it normally is early on and it caught us out a bit, but the boys dug deep, we came strong as the meeting went on and we managed to get another win on the table.

"Everyone had some good rides, all the boys scored some vital points and I'm glad Dak (North) proved to be an excellent choice of guest.

"It was great to see so many people here, it was a good meeting in front of the TV cameras and credit has to go to Coventry for that as well and in all honesty they deserved their league point tonight."

Nick Morris led by example in his first meeting at No.1 for the Robins, top-scoring with 10+1.

The Australian received some good back up from Kyle Howarth, Grzegorz Zengota and Dakota North who picked up a total of eight paid heat wins between them.

Both Charles Wright and Lewis Rose chipped in with four vital points a-piece from reserve and Troy Batchelor's three points proved just as important on an under-par night from the Robins' skipper who was suffering from food poisoning.

SWINDON 47: Nick Morris 10+1, Kyle Howarth 9+2, Dakota North 9, Grzegorz Zengota 8+2, Charles Wright 4, Lewis Rose 4, Troy Batchelor 3

COVENTRY 43: Danny King 11+1, Jason Garrity 8+3, Chris Harris 8+1, Hans Andersen 7+1, James Sarjeant 5, Stuart Robson 4, Joonas Kylmakorpi 0.
