Swindon skipper Jason Doyle insisted “we’ve still got a job to do” as Robins raced to a 49-41 triumph at Ipswich to take charge of the SGB Premiership Grand Final on Monday.
The Aussie ace suffered a nightmare start to the meeting when he clipped the kerb and fell in his opening ride, with pursuing team mate Adam Ellis running over his ankle.
But SGP man of steel Doyle rarely lets these incidents trouble him and hit back with 11 points from his remaining four races, while Polish racer Tobiasz Musielak put in a stellar display, scoring 12 paid 13.
Robins are now red-hot favourites to lift the Premiership trophy for the second time in three years. But JD is keen to keep his side grounded ahead of Thursday’s decider at Blunsdon.
He said: “It’s a good result for us and we’re all pleased with it, but we’ve still got a job to do on Thursday. It was a tough night, but we all worked hard and we have to be pleased with the result.
“Hopefully we can get the job done on Thursday and finish the season in a good way. I know we’re all looking forward to it and thanks to the fans who made the trip.”
SGP star Niels-Kristian Iversen topped the Ipswich scorechart on nine paid 11 points, while Jake Allen weighed in with nine paid 10.
But Witches will need an heroic performance in Wiltshire to deny the Robins, who racked up 11 race wins from a possible 15 to leave Ipswich with a mountain to climb.
