A FRUSTRATED Sean Edwards says his Westfields players need to step up to the plate after letting slip a lead at Bromsgrove Sporting on Tuesday night.

Edwards' team were set for a fine away win after leading 1-0 at half time thanks to a Mark Magee goal.

But Bromsgrove netted twice after the break to win the Midland Football League Premier Division match 2-1, much to the annoyance of Edwards.

"It was really frustrating because we should have won that game," said Edwards.

"We had good opportunities to get a second goal and hit the outside of a post before the ball hit a defender's leg before going wide.

"Fair play, they are a good side that work hard for each other, but we have got players who are experienced enough to see out games like that and they need to step up to the plate.

"Our back four were fantastic, but they were let down by other areas."

Westfields have only played seven league games this season, but are already 19 points off the top two.

"I've always said that you can only afford to drop 26 points and we've dropped 12 already," added Edwards,

"So we've got 14 left to play with, which isn't a lot."

Westfields opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Magee scored for the second successive game from close range.

The away side then squandered chances to increase their lead and were made to pay after the break.

Jason Cowley unleashed a fine strike to level before Robbie Bunn grabbed the winner with 12 minutes remaining.

Westfields are home this Saturday when they entertain second-from-bottom Boldmere St Michaels.

But they were will be without suspended pair Matt Sysum and Kane Kahaki, while influential winger Aidan Thomas is set to be sidelined for a few weeks with a back problem.
