Coventry 52 Swindon 43 

It's looking like Lakeside for the Robins

Swindon's regular Elite League campaign ended in dramatic fashion, as a combination of injury and dubious refereeing decisions helped the 
Coventry Bees ride to a nine-point victory.
 
Heat eight was the final straw for Rosco, with Seb Alden lost to a suspected broken collar bone.
 
With Alden being forced to withdraw, a mid-meeting slump ensued as Swindon conceded three successive 5-1 heat advantages which saw Coventry roar to a commanding sixteen-point lead.
 
The Robins' score chart was headed by skipper Leigh Adams, who notched fifteen points, whilst James Wright contributed an impressive eight point score from a four ride schedule.
 
The eventual nine-point defeat means Swindon finish their regular Elite League campaign with 41 points, and are almost certain of an away trip to Lakeside in Monday's play-off semi-final.
