[DR MARTENS LEAGUE MIDLAND DIVISION]

A gutsy display by Racing Club Warwick kept West Bromwich Albion at bay and earned them a Birmingham Senior Cup replay.

And Racing could have been celebrating an unlikely victory had they managed to convert any of the half-chances which fell to them in the second period.

Despite selecting virtually their entire Pontins League side Albion started brightly and threatened to swamp their non-league opposition, with several near-misses in the first half.

Twice Baggies striker Brian Quailey almost broke the deadlock, first with a snapshot which flew over the bar and minutes late a drive which was well saved by home keeper Andy Biffen.

Albion continued to push forward and should really have scored before the interval, but after the break Racing looked a different side and began to dominate the game.

The home side visibly grew in confidence and had Nick McFarlane been more composed in front of goal or Albion keeper Chris Adamson not been on such fine form Racing could have won the game.

However, Racing boss Martin Bewell was delighted with forcing Albion into a replay. He said:

"We battled well and it was a much better performance.

"I thought we defended superbly in the first half and when we came more into the game after the break we could have nicked it."
