WESTFIELDS DISAPPOINTING FORM CONTINUES

Westfields were beaten 2-1 away at Lye Town on Saturday when their disappointing form continued with another defeat.

Westfields, with just one win in their last nine games, again paid the penalty for two bad mistakes in which Lye Town capitalised on two first-half opportunities to take the points and despite a second-half all-round improved performance by Westfields they could not force a deserved equaliser.

On a bitterly cold afternoon Lye Town snatched an early lead when a throw-in on the right flank by Westfields resulted in a misplaced pass by Sam Gwynne and Lye Town broke away and when the ball came into the box Jack Till had the easiest opportunity of tapping the ball home to put the home side ahead.

Westfields came back into the game and equalised on the half hour when Aidan Thomas received the ball on the edge of the box and rifled home a low left-foot shot into the right-hand corner of the net to put the visitors level.

However, right on the stroke of half time Westfields were caught when Alex Harris parried a shot from the right-hand side but the ball ran freely for Brandon Hague who had the easiest opportunity of tapping the ball over the line to put the home side into the interval lead.

After the break Westfields came back into the game and both Ben Hayes and Craig Jones had opportunities but their shots were charged down and then at the other end Alex Harris made a brilliant save to prevent a further Lye Town goal.

Westfields then made good opportunities in the latter stages of the second half and a Craig Jones shot cannoned off a wall of defenders and then Turner in the Lye Town goal saved well from Ben Hayes.

Westfields battled to try and get a deserved equaliser which never came and Lye Town secured three valuable points to ease their relegation fears.

Final result: Lye Town 2   Westfields 1.
