Racing Warwick (0) 1
Bedworth United (0) 3

Bedworth came from behind to claim victory and move above Warwick.

Substitute Robbie Beard was the hero of the hour as he sparked their revival in an amazing second half spell.

The first half, played in atrocious weather conditions, had been a major disappointment with very few chances created by either side, but it certainly burst into life after the interval.

Racing came close to scoring when Bedworth defender Steve Brown had keeper Craig Glover to thank for pushing a back header round the post to safety.

Martin Bewell’s men finally made the breakthrough seven minutes into the second half when Jason Wolverstone mis hit a shot only for the ball to fall for Jason Percival who made certain from close range.

Bedworth could have come back just moments later when Paul Cordon set up Paul Bedder, whose shot blasted against the bar. When they did get back on terms again on the hour, Corden was once again the creator. He released Christy McKenzie who raced away and beat Richard Antiss.

Beard had just been introduced and had hardly had a touch before he put his side in front in the 65th minute. He pounced on a poor clearance from Robbie Burke and drove the ball low into the net.

That probably sealed the points and racing’s task was certainly made harder when Jason Woodley was red-carded for a foul on Corden. Beard made certain at the close when he converted a cross from Jai Stanley.
