Swindon Robins eased to the top of the Elite League table after a 60-33 thrashing of Belle Vue Aces.

Stand-in captain Troy Batchelor led the home side with a faultless paid maximum, whilst Nick Morris also continued his flying form - suffering just one defeat on his way to 13+1.

Result and scorers:

SWINDON 60

Nick Morris 13+1, Jason Doyle 11+3, Troy Batchelor 11+1, Edward Kennett 10+1, Peter Kildemand 9+2, Kyle Howarth 5+1, Ashley Birks 1

BELLE VUE 33

Josh Grajczonek 8+2, Matej Zagar 8, Magnus Zetterstrom 7+1, Lasse Bjerre 5, Kevin Wolbert 3, Ales Dryml 2, Craig Cook R/R

And team boss Alun Rossiter heaped praise on the Aussie duo following another powerful team display.

Said Rossiter: "It was an absolutely outstanding performance, and everybody did a great job.

"Troy put in a real captains performance - once again he raised the bar when he was made captain, and he is really maturing at the moment. I have nothing but praise for Troy right now.

"Obviously I'm really pleased for young Nick Morris as well. He had another great night, and he has been riding really well the last couple of weeks."

Belle Vue again struggled as none of their side was able to hit double figures with Josh Grajczonek their top scorer with 8+2.
