Smith gets Warwick off the mark at last; MIDLAND COMBINATION.
Smith's opening-half double, adding to the brace he notched in Saturday's 4-4 draw at Pilkington, put the Hampton Roaders on course for maximum points although they remain at the foot of the table. Skipper Luke Swinnerton added the other.
Massey Ferguson were on the wrong end of a 7-0 home drubbing on Saturday to Castle Vale JKS but they showed far more resilience and determination on Tuesday night despite being held to a 2-2 draw by Pilkington XXX.
Martyn Gardner gave the Tractormen a second-minute advantage but the Glassmen broke back smartly as Nathan Singh and Ryan Gardiner netted to give the visitors a 2-1 interval advantage before Mark Semper squared matters on the hour.
Nuneaton Griff also bounced back from a Saturday drubbing, 9-1 against Heather St John's, with a 4-3 verdict at Duidley Sports in the Birmingham County FA Floodlit Cup in which manager Steve Farmer was forced to take over between the posts due to players missing through injuries and work commitments.
Skipper Ryan Millerchip and Steve Flavell gave them a 2-0 lead inside the opening quarter but by the interval the hosts had levelled with Yakubu Nuni and Tony Cox their marksmen. T Steve Flavell regained the advantage before Adam Fincher restored parity. However, Aden Moore snatched Griff's winner following a goalkeeping mistake.
