action for four weeks after
fracturing his elbow 
Troy Batchelor has suffered a suspected fractured elbow during a practice session for his Polish club Leszno Bulls.

The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon when the Swindon Robins star was struck by another rider.

Troy will be flying back to Britain on Wednesday morning to have the injury assessed by a private hospital.

If the initial diagnosis is correct, Batchelor is expected to be out of action for a four week period - ruling him out of at least three Elite League fixtures.

It will also mean Batchelor won’t be able to take his place in Saturday’s Grand Prix Qualifying round at Lonigo in Italy.
 
Rider replacement

Swindon will operate rider replacement for Batchelor in the upcoming knockout cup meetings this week against Poole.

The Australian’s 7.31 average means all of the Swindon team except Leigh Adams will be eligible for a rider replacement outing. 

"‘I feel so desperately sorry for Troy who has performed extremely well this season," said Swindon team manager Alun Rossiter. 

"I spoke to him briefly and he is obviously devastated by the news and was feeling very down. He will listen to the advice of the doctors when he meets them tomorrow."
