BATCH: I'LL BE READY FOR WARSAW

Aussie racer Troy Batchelor is confident he will take his place in the LOTTO Warsaw SGP on April 18, as he recovers from his horror spill at Swindon on Monday.

The Robins skipper was briefly knocked out and sustained rib and shoulder injuries in a collision with SGP rival Maciej Janowski in heat three of his side’s meeting with Poole.

Batchelor was discharged from hospital fairly quickly, but is set to seek further medical advice as he continues to suffer dizzy spells and breathing difficulties.

He is due to sit out Swindon’s home and away matches with Lakeside on Thursday and Friday, but is determined to get himself ready for the opening SGP showdown of 2015 in the Polish capital.

He told Total Swindon Sport: “I’m feeling pretty second hand and still a bit out of it after being knocked out, so it’s going to be a good couple of days off the bike if not a little bit longer.

“I can’t really see any problem with Warsaw, although you never know with head injuries and things like that, so we’ll keep an eye on things for a little while. I feel dizzy at times. I’ve had ice packs on all day and I’m doing everything I can.

“I’m hoping to get in and see the specialist at Ipswich today and go from there, but I’ve got physio to have as well. You need to keep your muscles moving and working because it’s when you stop you end up in trouble. We’ll have to wait and see but I’m confident I won’t be out for too long.”
