Worcester City v Westfields
MATCH REPORT - Thursday, April 05, 2018
Worcester City 1 - Forsyth
FORSYTH SETTLES LOCAL DERBY WITH DIRECT FREE KICK
Westfields travelled to title-contenders Worcester City last night and were beaten by a sole 20 yard direct free kick by George Forsyth early in the second half and that is all that separated 2 teams that put up strong defensive shutters in which both defences did extremely well.
Worcester City enjoyed the better of the early exchanges with Brad Birch firing twice over the bar and into the neighbouring car park when well placed and Alex Harris in the Westfields goal twice tipping balls over the crossbar to save awkward situations.
Westfields’ best chance fell just before the interval when they should have taken the lead when a left-wing corner from Craig Jones found Carlos Moreira at the far post unmarked but his tame header was easily gathered by former Westfields keeper Matt Gwynne.
After a goal-less first half Worcester City came out strongly and snatched an early lead when they were awarded a free kick just outside the Westfields penalty area and George Forsyth curled a 20 yard direct kick into the corner of the net to put the title-contenders ahead.
Alex Harris then produced 2 blinding saves before Westfields had another chance to draw level when Phil Glover had a powerful header saved at the foot of the post by Matt Gwynne.
Westfields then brought on their 3 substitutes Brad Williams, Seth Antwi and Kingsford Adjei to add more pace into the attack and this livened things up in an effort to achieve an equaliser but sadly the Worcester City defence stood firm.
Westfields then almost fell further behind but Alex Harris produced a full-length save at the expense of a corner as Worcester won the game 1-0 and achieved 3 more points in a bid for promotion.
