FOOTBALL - Second-half goals help Racing Club Warwick to victory against Eynesbury

RACING Club Warwick scored three second-half goals to remain top of the table with a 4-1 home victory against Eynesbury Rovers.

Warwick took the lead through Josh Parsons’ opener only for Eynesbury to level in first-half injury time courtesy of Jonathan Hall’s fortuitous goal.

However, Josh Willis netted a brace before Parsons sealed the points after the break at Townsend Meadow as the Racers secured a 13th successive home win in all competitions.

And the result means Warwick remain top of the United Counties League Premier Division South table, ahead of Wellingborough Town on goal difference.

Racing broke the deadlock on 26 minutes when Parsons fired a first time effort past Rovers goalkeeper Caleb Chandler from just inside the penalty from Cameron Ebbutt’s excellent lofted through ball.

However, after the home side wasted a number of chances to extend their lead, Eynesbury equalised on the stroke of half time when a corner from the right hit Hall on the chest and trickled over the line.

Warwick restored their lead two minutes into the second half when Willis headed in Callum Carsley’s corner from the right at the back post from close range.

And Willis scored his second header of the game on 56 minutes , looping an effort over Chandler from 10-yards out after Eynesbury failed to clear their lines at a corner.

The Racers made sure of the points on 74 minutes as Parsons’ deft touch found the bottom left corner from Jay DLionga’s cross from the right.

Warwick are next in action away at Histon FC on Saturday, January 13 with kick-off at 2pm at Bridge Road.
