WESTFIELDS EARN EMIRATES FA CUP REPLAY

Westfields travelled to AFC Wulfrunians on Saturday in the Preliminary Round of the Emirates FA Cup and earned a 1-1 draw from a hard-working performance.

It was an end-to-end game which Westfields dominated in the early stages but perhaps did not capitalise on their early opportunities although the home side defended well with goalkeeper John Bateman in particularly good form.

After Ben Miller and Ben Hayes had both gone close with early opportunities Westfields snatched the lead in the 33rd minute when a fine cross-field ball by Craig Jones found Ben Hayes in space and he raced forward to put Westfields ahead with a low drive. 

However, Wulfrunians came back within 5 minutes when they were awarded a penalty and Kyle Brady sent Keiron Blackburn the wrong way from the spot to put the sides level 1-1 at the break.

After the interval, play swung from end-to-end in a nail-biting 45 minutes in which both sides had opportunities to go through to the First Round Qualifying but again both goalkeepers made good saves to keep the scores level.

Craig Jones almost put Westfields through with a fiercely struck free-kick which flew inches wide of the post but at the other end in a mad goal-mouth scramble Wulfrunians missed an opportunity to snatch the tie when they shot over the bar from close range. 

Both sides will now have to play out a replay on Wednesday at allpay.park, kick-off 7.45pm.
