Josh Parsons fired over for Warwick in an even start to the game but it was Walsall who opened the scoring after a Jai Verma cross shot deceived the back line and keeper Dan Crane who conceded his first goal in five matches.

Connor Mort volleyed over as Racing looked to get back on terms but they went into the break one down. The second half saw Warwick downhill and they dominated possession throughout with Hancocks in particular instrumental in effort and desire to get back on terms.
