"We can't afford any complacency and we are urging our supporters to come down and get behind us."
Lakeside will be boosted by the return of Seb Ulamek from injury. The Polish rider broke his collarbone and five ribs and has been out of action for five weeks.
Jason Bunyan will come into the Robins line-up in place of the unavailable Kyle Howarth.
Tonight's meeting has been rearranged after Thursday's meeting was abandoned after seven heats with Swindon leading by eight points.
