WESTFIELDS GO DOWN AT LYE
Westfields were beaten 2-1 away at Lye Town on Saturday as their disappointing end of season form continued with another disappointing result.
Lye Town and Westfields, both having a great chance of finishing in the top 3, started off at a good pace and Westfields took an early lead when Ben Hayes fired home from close range.
Westfields had other chances to increase the lead as Aidan Thomas fired straight at the Lye Town keeper, Jake Bedford.
Westfields then suffered a blow when they lost 2 players in the space of 10 minutes through injury when Matt Gwynne had to come off with a leg injury to be replaced by Keiron Blackburn and then just before half time Ben Miller came off with concussion and was replaced by Sirdic Grant.
After the break Lye came more into the game and pulled back a goal through Sam Tye.
Westfields still had opportunities to have got back into the game and Aidan Thomas twice put over dangerous centres which just failed to see the final touch added by the Westfields attack.
However, midway through the half skipper Phil Glover gave away a free kick just outside the penalty area and when the cross came in Jack Till headed home a glancing header to put Lye Town in front.
Lye then stepped up their game and twice Keiron Blackburn made full-length saves to deny Lye Town further goals whilst at the other end Bedford made a point-black save from Chris Ham with an outstretched leg and then the Lye Town keeper twice cut out good crosses to avert any Westfields danger.
Both defences remained on top in the latter stages of the game but it was Lye who snatched all 3 points to continue their push for a top 3 place.
On Saturday next Westfields go to Long Eaton and then the following Wednesday go to Highgate United as they continue their away run in the Midland Football League.
