[DR MARTENS LEAGUE MIDLAND DIVISION]

(Racing win 5-4 on aggregate)

Richie Wade scored both Racing’s goals and though they lost on the night they had done enough in the first leg to go through to the next round of the cup.

It was not without a battle however. Racing’s goalkeeper Richard Anstiss was among the busiest men on the pitch, Rangers hit a post and skipper Rob Burke made a goalline clearance from Richard Mitchell’s shot.

But Warwick hung on grimly to the final whistle and a place in the next round. Wade fired them in front in the 11th minute from Rob Sheedy’s pass and that lead stood until the 68th minute when Mitchell equalised.

Wade was on the mark again four minutes later however when Stafford’s goalkeeper could only push out a shot from Paul Eden.

Stephen Jones levelled the scores after 74 minutes and though Farrell Kilblane scored a third with minutes to play, Racing held out.
