Jake Brown scored Racing Club's second in their 2-1 win at Bolehall.

With new signings Sam Delaney and Luke Church filling the ranks and players coming back from injury, Racers were quickly on the front foot as they looked to banish the 7-1 reverse in their previous outing.

Jake Brown went close in the eighth minute but the keeper saved well and the home number one was in action again to superbly keep out a Toby Checketts header.

Lucky Nwuso was causing Swifts problems on his return to the side and it was the Racing Club left-back who opened the scoring, latching on to Alex Price’s delightful through ball before calmly slotting home.

Minutes later, a superb through ball from Martin Slevin allowed Brown to race half the length of the pitch before firing past the keeper to make it 2-0.

Bolehall pulled one back with a fine cross and headed finish but not before some controversy as the visitors felt Checketts was fouled in the build-up.

Racers had several chances to put the game to bed and Wade Malley was unlucky not to get the third after showing good pace and strength to get a shot away which was superbly saved.

A Brown turn and strike was cleared off the line and despite Checketts having to be alert to do the same at the other end, it was a deserved three points for the visitors.

Racing Club, whose midweek match at home to Bromsgrove was postponed, host Pershore Town tomorrow.
