Swindon Set Up Coventry climax 

All smiles:
Robins team manager
They've done it! The Swindon Robins have made the Elite League Grand Final!

At the Abbey Stadium tonight, Swindon beat current champions Peterborough 50-42 in the semi-final to set up a mouth-watering final against Coventry, who saw off Poole in the other last-four clash.

"We were superb. A fantastic team effort," exclaimed team manager Alun Rossiter after Charlie Gjeddes clinched the winning points in Heat 13.

"It's now up to us to finish the job. We're only half-way to where we want to be."
The first leg of the Grand Final takes place at the Abbey next Monday. The return fixture a week later, with Swindon ace Leigh Adams sure to star after recovering from injury (see video interview below).

The Australian forced to support his teammates from the pits after dislocating a shoulder in the Knockout Cup at Reading on Friday night.
"Hopefully I'll be ready," Adams told us, "I was gutted to miss the semi but the guys have done a brilliant job tonight."

"It's the final everyone wants to see. And if it's anything like the four fixtures we've had this season it should be a good one."
