[FA CUP PRELIMINARY ROUND]

Racing finally squeezed through to the next round of the FA Cup against the Banks Premier League side Lye Town, but they must have despaired of ever getting the clinching goal.

They dominated the opening 45 minutes but failed to get the breakthrough and they almost paid for it in the second period when Lye had the ball in the net but were flagged offside.

Racing began brightly and Rob Sheedy was just off target with a header in the 5th minute. Stuart Clarke then saw an effort cleared off the goal line when he got in a header from Mark Smith.

But Racing were given a sharp lesson in the 12th minute when Lye won a corner and their defender Jason Woodley, who had passed a late fitness test, drilled a low shot against the woodwork. But Racing redoubled their efforts despite losing skipper Rob Burke with a facial injury and Clarke and Robbie Ellison both went close.

Racing resumed the second half where they had left off the first and eventually Mark Smith got their winner with seven minutes left.
