Highgate United 0
Racing Club Warwick 0
SIX matches in 13 days finally took its toll on Highgate as they failed to break down second from bottom Racing Club Warwick.
The jaded performance nearly burst into life mid-way through the first half when Luke Keen and Chris Gummery were both thwarted by the away keeper.
Gummery then had the ball in the back of the net but the strike was ruled out for offside.
The draw left Highgate in a creditable 13th place in their first season in the Midland Alliance.
Coventry Copsewood 3
KNOWLE buckled under the pressure of a late Coventry Copeswood onslaught to give away a precious 1-0 lead.
