In a meeting delayed by two nasty falls, the visiting side were hampered by the withdrawal of their reserve duo who sustained injuries in separate on track incidents.
Firstly, Stuart Robson was ruled out of the meeting after a heat two crash whilst Robert Mear took no further part after a high speed race nine spill.
Swindon led throughout and were able to successfully repel both of Lakeside’s tactical manoeuvres in the middle sector of the meeting.
Matej Zagar enjoyed a fantastic home debut by notching a paid thirteen point haul and deservedly scooped the man of the match award.
Zagar conclunded the night in perfect fashion as the Slovenian sensation romped to a classy race win. Travis McGowan’s third placed finish ensured Swindon registered a heat fifteen 4-2 which shuffled the Robins’ overall margin of victory to eighteen points.
