Close call:
Troy Batchelor seizes a point 
for the Robins, after a gruelling
final heat with Leigh Adams
It was a close call for Rossiter's speedway stars last night, as they managed to secure a draw at the Abbey Stadium following on from a 50-43 away win at Ipswich on Monday night.
 
After tense heats throughout the evening, the Swindon Robins managed to pull back 5-1 in the last heat.
 
Missing from the Robins side was Mads Korneliussen, who was nursing heavy bruising from a guest appearance for Poole the previous evening.
 
And although the side struggled in Mads' absence, Batchelor and Adams managed to pull back and rescue a precious league point.
