Swindon Robins team manager Jan Staechmann says his side need to win their final home meeting of the Elite League season to "re-pay the fans".

The Robins have won just seven of their 29 meetings this season and sit bottom of the table, with only their double-header against Peterborough remaining.

"We need to re-pay the fans for their loyal support," he told BBC Wiltshire.

"We'd also like to try and get a bit of a head start on next year which is what we are desperately trying to do."

Staechmann succeeded Ronnie Russell as manager in July in a bid to improve the side's poor form, but the Dutchman has only managed two wins during his tenure.

He has moved to strengthen his pack by bringing in rising star Mikkell Jensen but says there is no need for a drastic shake up within the squad.

"It's no good changing for change's sake," he added.

"We are getting the riders that want to come to Swindon and that we want to come.

"We've got a really good team spirit so we just need a little bit of luck."
