PENALTY HITS WESTFIELDS AGAINST LEAGUE LEADERS

Westfields travelled to league leaders Coleshill Town last night and put up a tremendous performance against the title contenders but fell to a late penalty and suffered a 2-1 defeat after producing a workmanlike and good team display.

After a goal-less first half when Mark Magee had had a goal disallowed and other shots had gone narrowly wide for Westfields, the visitors took the lead when Aidan Thomas shot Westfields ahead in the 53rd minute.

However, Westfields could not hold onto their lead and 3 minutes later the league leaders drew level with a great strike from Mike Tymon who beat debutant keeper Alex Harris from 20yds with a fierce drive.

Earlier, Harris in the Westfields goal had provided a competent display, taking dangerous crosses out of the air and fielding long shots from the title contenders.

Westfields played extremely well on the 3G surface and were unlucky not to go ahead when shots from Craig Jones and Jamie Molyneux were both brilliantly saved by the home keeper.

However, drama struck in the 75th minute when Coleshill took the lead from a hotly disputed penalty when Kane Kahaki with his arms in the air was penalised for hand ball and after Alex Harris had brilliantly saved the spot kick a Coleshill player ran in to smash home the rebound and put the home side ahead for the first time.

Westfields still came back and produced a grandstand finish as they tried to draw level and again Craig Jones had a shot charged down and Molyneux fired into the side netting when well placed.

However, the league leaders held on for a slender 2-1 lead and now Westfields face 2 attractive home games with Heanor Town visiting allpay.park on Saturday, kick-off 3pm, and Worcester City the visitors next Wednesday, kick-off 7.45pm.
