WESTFIELDS GAIN VITAL WIN
Westfields returned to winning ways when they recorded a fine 1-0 home win at allpay.park against visiting Long Eaton United on Saturday.
Westfields ended their barren spell with a fine win when they gave a much better attacking performance and kept a clean sheet when Nathan Summers marshalled the defence superbly at the back along with Sam Rawlings, Sam Plane and Jay Sauntson.
Westfields opened up at a sparkling pace and had a number of early opportunities which they could not put away when Richard Greaves, Aidan Thomas and Ben Hayes were all thwarted by the visiting keeper until the 42nd minute when a dangerous free-kick by Craig Jones from way out on the left hand side was headed across goal by Richard Greaves and Ben Hayes arrived at the far post to score with a brave header.
This gave Westfields a 1-0 interval lead and after the break Westfields should have increased their lead when Richard Greaves lobbed the Long Eaton keeper but the ball bounced agonisingly wide of the post and Craig Jones also fired wide when well placed.
Long Eaton too had their moments and Matt Gwynne twice made brilliant point-blank saves to deny the visitors an equaliser and Nathan Summers twice headed away dangerous corners as the visitors came back in search of an equaliser.
Westfields brought on substitutes Matt Reeve and Sirdic Grant in an effort to extend their lead and both players produced openings but again the Long Eaton defence stood firm.
In a nail-biting last 5 minutes Long Eaton twice almost drew level but again Gwynne and Summers dealt with the Long Eaton attack brilliantly.
Westfields deserved their 1-0 win to put them back into the top 4.
Next Saturday Westfields travel to Rocester, kick-off 3pm, and the following Saturday Rocester return to allpay.park in the return league fixture.
