WESTFIELDS’ TITLE-CHALLENGE APPEARS TO BE NEARLY OVER
Westfields were surprisingly beaten 2-1 away at lowly Coventry United on Saturday and lost ground on their chances of a promotion place.
Westfields could not master the bumpy pitch and the windy conditions and were a goal down after 16 minutes when the home side took the lead.
However, prolific goal-scorer John Mills equalised 10 minutes later when he tucked away an Aidan Thomas cross to put Westfields level.
Westfields then also had good opportunities to increase their lead when Mills saw a shot go wide and then Aidan Thomas also fired wide from a well-placed position.
Right on the stroke of half time Westfields failed to clear a ring-wing corner and Coventry tucked away the ball to put the home side 2-1 ahead just before the interval.
After the break Westfields had some great opportunities to have drawn level and John Mills had a shot brilliantly saved by the home keeper when an equaliser seemed certain, whilst at the other end Keiron Blackburn twice put Westfields into difficult positions with poor clearances but the home side failed to take advantage.
Westfields threw everything into attack in the second half in an effort to draw level but the equaliser never came as Coventry United held out to ease their relegation worries.
Westfields now return to allpay.park on Saturday with a home game against Highgate United, kick-off 3pm.
