WESTFIELDS FORCE RE-PLAY IN FA CUP TIE
Westfields travelled to Congleton Town from the North-West Counties Premier Division on Saturday and forced a 1-1 draw in the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup.
Westfields travelled without leading goal scorer Aidan Thomas and ace midfield player Craig Jones who were both missing from the line-up but Westfields performed admirably and worked hard throughout the game.
In fact Westfields surprised the home side by taking an 8th minute lead when Dan Stoneman fired home through a ruck of players after good work by Ben Hayes on the left flank.
However, the home side hit back and drew level in the 15th minute through Saul Henderson who tucked away a near-post effort.
The home side then began to take the initiative and Harvey Rivers in the Westfields goal saved superbly and then twice Ryan Green and Kane Kahaki eased situations with timely tackles.
At the other end Richard Greaves had a half chance but the home keeper Craig Ellison dived bravely at the feet of the Westfields striker.
After the break both defences remained on top although Billy Murphy flashed a free-kick across the face of the Congleton goal and then at the other end Kane Kahaki cleared off the Westfields line and then another Congleton effort was scrambled clear in the latter stages.
Both sides worked hard in a very evenly matched cup tie and now they will meet again on Tuesday evening, 13th August, kick-off 8pm at allpay.park, to decide which side goes through to the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup with a home tie against Lutterworth Town on Saturday 24th August.
