Swindon Robins suffered another Elite League defeat despite a stunning display from new boy Scott Nicholls.

Australian Nicholls secured 13 points at Wolverhampton Wolves, but it was not enough to deny the hosts, who came from behind to win 48-42.

Swindon did land a consolation point to co-boss Gary Patchett's pleasure.

"This was an encouraging display. It's nice to claim a first point and Scotty was superb, but there was a lot of effort from everyone," said Patchett.

"Wolverhampton is a difficult place to come and get a result and hopefully we can now build on this."

Nicholls denied Wolves duo Freddie Lindgren and Peter Karlsson maximums with his victories in heats 13 and 15.
