non-league football: Racing boss looks on the bright side.

RACING WARWICK manager Billy Hollywood was in upbeat mood after watching his men go down in a thrilling Birmingham Senior Cup-tie with Willenhall Town at Hampton Road.

A see-saw game resulted in the sides being locked at 3-3 at the end of normal time and 4-4 at the end of the extra 30 minutes before the Midland Alliance side squeezed home 4-3 on penalties.

Western Division Racing had lost their previous two games 6-2 and 6-0 and Hollywood said: "I'm not disappointed with the Willenhall defeat because, looking at the bigger picture, the character and work rate was far better than in any game since the season started."

Paul Rostron (2), Lee Darlison (penalty) and Adam Kinder netted for Racing before the shoot-out which saw Lee Darlison and Colin Wells fail from the spot with Paul Eden, Neil Stephenson and Mark Hodson successful. Stephenson saved one of the Willenhall efforts.
