Racing Club Warwick 0 Halesowen Town 0

Halesowen’s season is in danger of faltering as they once again failed to find the net despite dominating their opponents and being awarded a penalty.

With Racing Club Warwick unable to muster a decent scoring opportunity all afternoon, it was left to the visitors to try to break the deadlock, but they were guilty of poor final delivery and missing a host of chances in front of goal. The Yeltz were handed a gift in the 29th minute when Dave Jackson was judged to have tripped Stuart Skidmore in the penalty area, much to the disgust of the home defence. However, even this golden opportunity was wasted when Les Hines hit the spot-kick at hand height allowing goalkeeper Matt Tucker to save diving to his left. Mark Taylor then volleyed just wide in the 32nd minute and Tucker held onto an Andy Jones cross at full stretch two minutes before half-time.
Just after the break Gary Smith won a corner which led to an almighty goalmouth scramble in which Matty Hall and Andy Jones failed to connect from just two yards out and ended with Lee Collins firing high. Neil Smith misdirected a header in front of goal in the 55th minute and a minute later Jones headed a cross from Taylor against the crossbar from close range with no-one able to take advantage of the inviting rebound. Another loose ball ran across the Warwick goalmouth without finding a finishing touch in the 83rd minute when substitute Alfie Carter won a header from a free-kick.
