Earlswood Town 1 Racing Club Warwick 2

The visitors settled down the quicker and took advantage of some wayward Earlswood passing.

Earlswood Town entertained a youthful Racing Club in this Midland Combination encounter and after going down to ten men towards the end of the first half were mainly on the back foot.

The visitors settled down the quicker and took advantage of some wayward Earlswood passing.

In the 17th minute Roy Dunkley was put through for Earls but the keeper came out to save well.

But now Racing Club were largely in the ascendancy and took the lead after 35 minutes when Elliot Powell latched on to a high ball over the top and dispatched it into the Earlswood net.

Three minutes later things got worse for Earlswood as they went down to ten men when Keith Draper was brought down and, after retaliating, was given his marching orders.

The extra man made a difference, with Warwick on top from the start of the second half.

They went further ahead on the hour mark when they were awarded a free-kick just on the edge of the Earlswood box and Jamie Corrigan’s free-kick just evaded goalkeeper Josh Benton’s outstretched hands.

Miles Jones also headed a shot off the line as Racing piled on the pressure.

Earls brought on new signing Bradley Hall 20 minutes from time and he caused a lot of problems for the visitors’ defence with a number of good runs down the right flank.

Indeed, Earls spurned a couple of good chances before they grabbed snatch a consolation goal three minutes from time when Carl Redden hit a loose ball into the net after a goalmouth scramble.
