Swindon Robins 49 Coventry Bees 43 

Close call for Swindon Robins in last heat decider
 
On a glorious evening a large Blunsdon attendance witnessed Swindon collect a six point victory over a resolute Coventry side that wrestled the Robins into a last heat decider.

Despite trailing throughout the entire meeting the Bees fought back in the concluding stages and in doing so set up a tense climax to the meeting.

However, it was the Robins who prevailed as the Coventry attack fell apart in the concluding race and allowed Swindon to collect two more league points, in doing so bolstering their position at the top of the table.

As always, Leigh Adams contributed a thoroughly professional performance that saw him notch up a hefty fourteen point haul and deservedly collect the man of the match award.
