[DR MARTENS MIDLAND DIVISION]

Adam Munday scored twice in his first full game of the season, but Racing's defensive frailties again surfaced and they had to work hard to end their dismal run of five straight league defeats.

The giant Munday made an immediate impact by robbing Wayne Hatswell of the ball in the 11th minute and crashing home a thirty yards shot for a goal of stunning quality.

Racing almost went further ahead three minutes later when a corner kick by Mark Smith fell to Jason Woodley whose shot was cleared off the goal line.

But within a minute Warwick's defence let them down. Rob Colwell attempted a back pass to his goalkeeper Richard Anstiss, but he underhit the ball and Quentin Townsend nipped in to score the equaliser.

Racing then survived a let off when Steve Tapp fired against their crossbar, but they battled back and after Robbie Ellison's powerful header was cleared off the goal line they scored the 73rd minute winner.

Ellison played Mark Smith down the wing and his centre was superbly headed home by Munday.

Racing now hope to build on this result in the FA Cup against Willenhall on Saturday.
