A FOURTH draw of the season at home to Coventry Copsewood was enough to move Racing Club Warwick up to ninth in the Midland League Division One table.

Jake Brown and Wade Malley both got on the scoresheet but it was not enough as Warwick were made to settle for a point from Saturday’s lively encounter.

It was the visitors who opened the scoring with just three minutes on the clock through Lawrence Rawlings but Warwick almost pulled level when Martin Slevin saw his ninth-minute shot saved.

With 14 minutes gone the hosts were back level thanks to Jake Brown and at this point it was all Warwick with Joseph Wright, Wade Malley and Slevin all coming close.

Copsewood showed signs of their threat going forward but it remained 1-1 at the midway point in the match.

The second half followed in a similar pattern as the first with the visitors retaking the lead three minutes after the re-start and it was Rawlings again on hand to bag a brace.

But just four minutes later Warwick were back on level terms again Malley converted Terence Morton’s assist.

Chances were few and far between as the match drifted towards the end and 2-2 is the way it remained at the final whistle.
