FOOTBALL - Carsley brace helps Racing Club Warwick close in on league leaders

CALLUM Carsley scored a brace as Racing Club Warwick came from behind to beat Godmanchester Rovers 3-1 and move two points off the top of the table.

Carsley equalised for Warwick before later completing the scoring with Louis Monaghan also on target at Townsend Meadow as the home side sealed a sixth straight win in all competitions.

The result means the Racers are just two points behind leaders Wellingborough Town in the United Counties League Premier Division South table.

Godmanchester opened the scoring on eight minutes as Sam Tagg fired a low effort into the bottom left corner from 15-yards out.

However, Warwick drew level from the restart when Carsley powered the ball home in off Rovers goalkeeper Ben Newton from Luke Shearer’s clever backheel.

Racing completed the turnaround on 21 minutes as Monaghan lashed home a loose ball in the box after Newton could only parry Cameron Ebbutt’s initial effort from distance.

And Warwick sealed the points on 86 minutes when Carsley scored his second goal of the game with a stunning first time effort into the top right corner from 20-yards out.

The Racers are next in action away at Aylestone Park on Saturday, December 2 with kick-off at 3pm at Saffron Lane.
