WESTFIELDS PAY THE PENALTY

Westfields suffered a 1-0 away defeat at Heanor Town in the Total Motion Midland Football League Premier Division on Saturday when a first-half penalty to the home side gave them the 3 points in a game that Westfields clearly should have won or at least come away with something from a game which they dominated for long periods.

Heanor admittedly were the better side in the early stages and took an early lead when they scored from the penalty spot after Matt Sysum had been adjudged to have pulled down the home striker.

The home side led 1-0 at the break but in the second half Westfields came out with a totally different approach and should really have come away with the 3 points.

Westfields dominated the second half for long periods and Carlos Moreira and Craig Jones both put over some menacing crosses which went begging as both Mark Magee and Jamie Molyneux missed good opportunities.

Westfields should have taken an opportunity to draw level when Richard Greaves was presented with a chance but he delayed his shot and that was cleared by a home defender. 

As the game wore on Westfields created more and more by way of chances but their frustrations continued when shots went wayward or were cleared by an overworked Heanor defence.

Heanor did have a couple of opportunities themselves as they pushed up and caught Westfields twice on the counter-attack but on each occasion Keiron Blackburn was equal to anything that was thrown at him and he made 2 brilliant saves to keep Westfields in the game.

Then late in the game Westfields threw men forward as they went all out on an attack and Craig Jones missed a great opportunity to put Westfields level when he volleyed over the bar from 10 yards and then a superb cross from the right was sadly missed by Magee and Molyneux as they raced in on goal.

Westfields had to suffer a 1-0 defeat and a long journey home down the M1.
