WESTFIELDS PICK UP ANOTHER VALUABLE POINT
Westfields continued their impressive form with a hardworking 1-1 draw against title contenders, Coventry Sphinx at allpay.park on Saturday when the two sides produced an end-to-end Midland Football League top of the table clash.
It was a game both sides badly wanted to win and both teams had ample opportunities to capitalise on tremendous openings but failed to take gilt edged chances which came their way.
After a goalless first half when defences were on top, Westfields broke the deadlock in the 50th minute when Jamie Molyneux fired home an unstoppable shot into the top right hand corner of the net from just inside the penalty area to give Westfields the lead.
However, the visitors came storming back and after Keiron Blackburn had saved at point blank range, they drew level when again Blackburn produced a save but Lewis Hudson raced in to head home the rebound.
This then produced an end-to-end last 25 minutes in which substitute Alex Hainault crashed a shot against the Coventry Sphinx upright and then the same player was guilty of a far post opportunity which went inches wide.
Meanwhile at the other end Blackburn saved again from point blank range and Sam Plane cleared another effort off the Westfields’ goal line before Coventry Sphinx has two great opportunities which went begging with far post headers that went over the bar.
Both sides settled for a point in an action packed exciting game.
Westfields’ next game is away on Saturday at Loughborough University, kick-off 3 pm, and then on Monday, 24 September, they are at home to Stourport Swifts in the Midland Football League Cup first round tie, kick-off 7.45 pm at allpay.park.
