WESTFIELDS LOSE OUT IN TOP OF THE TABLE BATTLE

Westfields visited league leaders Ilkeston Town on Saturday for the Midland Football League match of the day but came away point-less following a good hard-working display but Westfields lacked a cutting-edge in front of goal and suffered a 2-0 defeat at the home of Ilkeston Town.

Playing in front of 650 spectators Westfields got off to a dismal start when goalkeeper Ian Havard in an attempt to clear the ball in only the first minute put the ball right into the path of Tim Hopkinson and the Ilkeston striker had the easy task of tapping the ball home from the edge of the box into an empty net.

This gave the home side a dream start and immediately had Westfields on the back foot and in fairness Havard in the Westfields goal then made 3 brilliant saves to prevent further goals in the early stages.

Westfields hit back at the home side and Molyneux and Craig Jones both fired just over the crossbar before Ilkeston increased their lead just before half time when Ryan Whitehurst got free down the right hand side and put over a perfect cross for Elliott Reeve to run in and side-foot the ball past Havard from 6 yards.

In the second half Westfields enjoyed better possession but their good passing game could not penetrate the home defence despite Molyneux going close with a header before he collided with the far post and had to be withdrawn injured. 

Westfields then pressed in search of a goal and Sam Plane had a great opportunity to pull a goal back but his header flashed wide of the Ilkeston post.

Urged on by their large crowd behind the one goal Ilkeston defended soundly as Westfields could not find the cutting-edge in front of goal to get something from the game.

The result gave Ilkeston 3 valuable points and put them clear of Worcester City who now move into second spot.

Next Saturday Westfields are at home to Dunkirk, kick-off 3pm at allpay.park.
