SWINDON Robins ace Adam Ellis hopes history repeats itself at Leicester on Wednesday (7.30) – but insists the pressure is off.

The CFS Filtration Robins travel to the Lions having already clinched a 46-44 Premiership victory at their den back in April.

That result, coupled with a four-point haul at Poole and four home victories, has Swindon among the frontrunners in the early standings.

And while Ellis is keen for more glory on the road, he believes making the most of home comforts will be of greater importance with away points already in the bag.

“The form has been good, overall we have been pretty consistent and winning meetings,” said Ellis.

“We had good wins at Poole and Leicester which was exactly what we needed to begin with and while we have not had the results we wanted on the road lately, we have been pretty strong at home.

“We started on a high and carried through the form from last year so as long as we keep winning the home meetings and get the odd result on the road we know we will be in the play-offs.

“Going well from the off means we don’t have to dominate to get ourselves into that top four, which is all that matters. As we all know, anything can happen from there.”

Following a break for the Speedway of Nations and British Final, Premiership action returns with both teams set to be at full strength at the Paul Chapman & Sons Arena, Leicester.
