Lye Town 1 - Worsley
Westfields 2 - Cooper, Jones
WESTFIELDS WIN AWAY AT LYE
Westfields produced a grandstand finish away at Lye Town on Saturday to secure 3 valuable points to keep them in second place in the Midland Football League when an injury-time goal from skipper Craig Jones sealed the 3 points from another hard-working display.
Lye Town and Westfields, old rivals from West Midland League days and through the Midland Football Alliance days, gave an end-to-end exciting contest and after a goal-less first half in which both goalkeepers, Matt Sargeant for Lye and Ian Havard for Westfields, produced good saves Westfields broke the deadlock in the 62nd minute with a fine finish from midfield Man of the Match Keanu Cooper.
Cooper, who scored the winning goal against Romulus in the FA Vase, produced another clinical finish after good build-up play to put Westfields ahead but Lye Town came surging back when Lewis Worsley scored with a finish at the far post from an acute angle after the Westfields defence had appealed for offside.
Westfields then mounted tremendous pressure on the Lye goal to try and secure 3 points and kept going and earned their rewards when good build-up play down the right flank saw Craig Jones seize an opportunity from 12 yards to put the ball low in the left hand corner with a fine left foot finish.
Lye Town had little chance to come back at Westfields who once again gave a fine performance.
This week on Saturday Westfields play local rivals Stourport Swifts at allpay.park, kick-off 3pm, and the following Saturday have an attractive away fixture against another Worcestershire side Worcester City before Westfields return to play at home against Leicester Nirvana in the FA Vase Third Round.
Chief Executive Andy Morris commented “The next 3 games are extremely important to the season but Andy Bevan and his staff are working very hard with the players in what will be a very important time with most attractive games prior to Christmas”.
