WESTFIELDS PAY THE PENALTY
Westfields’ disappointing New Year run of results continued when they were beaten 2-1 at home by AFC Wulfrunians as the visitors took revenge for Westfields’ earlier success of knocking them out of the FA Cup at the start of the season.
The visitors were a lot quicker and enjoyed good periods of play but it was Westfields who had the early opportunities to have opened the scoring when they were presented with opportunities but they were wasted by Ben Hayes and also Jamie Molyneux who both had good opportunities to put Westfields ahead in the early stages.
However, these early opportunities that were not taken were then highlighted when the visitors took the lead when James Febery bundled over Nick Turton and from the resultant penalty the visitors took the lead.
After the break Westfields came back strongly and after a series of attacks James Febery headed home a corner to put the sides level.
Westfields then began to get on top and seek a winner but wasted a glorious opportunity when Ben Hayes headed against the crossbar from 6yds out and Craig Jones also fired wildly over the bar when well placed.
With Westfields pushing up they were caught on the break when Nick Turton raced away half the length of the field to beat Alex Harris in the home goal to give AFC Wulfrunians the lead.
Westfields then came back strongly but could not break down a sound Wulfrunians defence and the visitors ran out 2-1 winners leaving Westfields in mid-table.
Next Saturday Westfields visit relegation-threatened Shawbury United at Ludlow Town before they return to allpay.park the following Saturday, 17th February, to entertain old rivals Highgate United.
