Racing Club Warwick 2 Bromsgrove Sporting 1
IMPROVING Racing Club put their poor start to the season firmly behind them by chalking up a second Athium Midland Combination Premier Division victory in the space of four days at Hampton Road on Tuesday night.
Racing took just 12 minutes to break the deadlock through Ed Kostuck who neatly turned on the edge of the area and fired home his third goal in two games beyond keeper Chris Mole.
Former Brakes striker Josh Blake, making a return to Racing where he started his career in the youth team, should have increased the advantage midway through the first half but dragged his shot wide with just Mole to beat.
It proved a costly miss as newly-promoted Sporting equalised five minutes before the break through Joe Brookes who converted a penalty awarded when Luke Wilson brought down Jon Rogers in the area.
But Racing regained the lead four minutes into the second half when Nathan Edgington escaped his marker and headed home a fine cross from Paul Wilkinson.
It was an advantage Racing comfortably held on to with the only real scare coming from Chris Conway’s header which was superbly saved by keeper Kevin Tobin.
Racing had previously romped to a 4-0 victory over Castle Vale JKS at Hampton Road on Saturday.
Ed Kostuck led the way with a smartly taken double to which David Bailey and Nathan Edgington added.
The only disappointment for Racing was the dismissal of Scott Watkin for retaliating to an ugly challenge from Vale midfielder Andrew Milan who was also sent off.
Racing, who have rocketed up the table to fifth place, have no scheduled fixture this Saturday but they return to action with a trip to Earlswood Town on Tuesday night.
