Racing Club Warwick 2 Rocester 1

Racers extend unbeaten run

Racing Club Warwick made it seven league wins on the bounce in beating a plucky Rocester side. On a day when many fixtures were postponed due to frozen pitches, Racing capitalised picking up all three points to close the gap at the top with games in hand. A fantastic display from the Rocester stopper Carl Allen denied Ben Mackey three times in the first half after he had done well over and over again to carve out a shooting opportunity, which was well saved each time. Trea Bertie saw a fierce shot well saved and a Luke Cole effort was again denied by the excellent Allen. Marc Passey had a deflected shot bounce back off the bar and it looked like for all their efforts on target Warwick would go in at the break level until on 40 minutes captain Scott Turner superbly headed home from Henry Leavers corner. Joe Smith had brilliantly cut out the main Romans threat in a faultless display throughout and the Racers went in at half time one up.

Second half saw a continuation of Warwick pressure. Mackey again had several chances superbly saved by the now battle scarred keeper who bravely carried on despite obvious injury to several parts of his body. Mackey looked like his duck would be broken when clean through but again Allen stood his ground as he did when Bertie saw himself similarly in on goal. Bertie was not to be denied however and he struck a fearsome blow to the Rocester hopes when driving home a fierce shot on 56 minutes. Mackey glanced a header just wide after a lovely cross from Chris Johnson and Mackey was yet again denied by an Allen tip over.

Rocester pulled a late goal back when Brown fired home and they piled on some pressure late on but Warwick held out to chalk off another three points in their quest for promotion.
