Lichfield City survive late Racing Club Warwick rally to earn three points

Lichfield City FC survived a late scare to hang on for a 3-2 win over Racing Club Warwick.

Wilson was the first to go close as Gary Birch’s men made the early running.

But it was Warwick who felt they should have been given the chance to break the deadlock when they were denied a penalty after a quarter of an hour.

Lichfield made them pay as Wilson opened the scoring – and Bourne could have made it 2-0 when his effort came back off the bar.

The second goal eventually came when centre back Adam Wood found the net.

City secured themselves a three-goal cushion when Clarke found the net.

Evans was next to go close when he spurned a one-on-one as Lichfield looked to follow-up their 8-0 demolition of Pelsall Villa last weekend with another big score.

But a penalty – converted by Smith – gave Warwick a route back into the game, before another spot kick made it 3-2 to set City nerves jangling.

But Lichfield held on to secure three points – a result which leaves them sixth in the Midland Football League Division One.
