WESTFIELDS boss Sean Edwards bemoaned two lost points as his side returned with a 1-1 Midland Alliance draw from lowly Heath Hayes.
“We played well but it just wouldn’t fall for us,” said the city club’s manager.
“We had a couple cleared off the line and couldn’t get the second goal which would have made all the difference.
“Although we did have a bit of luck when they hit a post late on.”
Josh Hunt, in for the suspended Richard Kear, opened the scoring after 11 minutes from a pass by Sam Gwynne.
The teenager had another effort saved by the goalkeeper’s legs before Dave Waple levelled prior to the break.
Aidan Thomas, Will Loughman and Jamie Cuss all went close before Waple’s late effort came back off the woodwork into the arms of Fields keeper Jamie Moore.
“It’s been a frustrating season because it has been so stop-start,” admitted Edwards.
“We didn’t miss a game last season because of the weather but this year there has been no chance to gain momentum.
“I still believe, though, that we are capable of putting a run of 10 or 15 games together and I can take some comfort from the knowledge that, although we had eight players missing on Saturday through work, suspension or injury, we could still put a good squad out.”
