MATCH REPORT - Tuesday, August 21, 2018
AFC Walfrunians 0
Westfields 1 - Miller pen
WESTFIELDS GAIN BACK-TO-BACK WINS
Westfields followed on from Saturday’s 4-1 home win over Shepshed Dynamo to record an excellent 1-0 away win at AFC Wulfrunians last night when a penalty in the 21st minute by Ben Miller gave Westfields 3 points to keep them in the top 3 placings in the league.
Miller’s penalty came after Ben Hayes had been bundled over in the Wulfrunians penalty area.
Westfields put up a stubborn defence in which Sam Plane had an excellent game whilst goalkeeper Ian Havard dealt with everything confidently in the visitors’ goal.
Westfields had an excellent chance to increase their lead when Craig Jones had a shot from the edge of the penalty area which shot over the bar.
After leading at the break Westfields had to defend in the second half for long periods as the home side came more into the game in search of an equaliser but Havard saved brilliantly at the foot of the post and then Sam Plane twice headed clear dangerous crosses.
Westfields then had another opportunity to increase their lead when Carlos Moreira broke free on the left but his shot hit the side netting.
Wulfrunians then threw everything at Westfields in the final 5 minutes to get an equaliser and forced 3 corner kicks, all of which were headed clear by Craig Jones, Sam Plane and Paul Hurrell.
Westfields’ 3 points sets them up nicely for the Bank Holiday weekend when they visit Dunkirk at Nottingham on Saturday and then on Monday they entertain newly-promoted Wolverhampton Sporting Community at allpay.park, kick-off 3pm, in another important Midland Football League game.
