WESTFIELDS manager Andy Bevan says that his team will have to increase their workrate if they are to stand a chance against table-topping Ilkeston Town on Saturday.

The Robins visit Allpay Park sitting four points above Westfields and having played two games less.

Bevan watched as his side were dumped out of the FA Vase last weekend following a 4-0 defeat to Leicester Nirvana.

The Fields manager was disappointed with the heavy defeat which followed a run of five wins on the bounce in all competitions.

He said: "It was very disappointing and not one player had a good game ultimately.

"As expected they were a decent side and we couldn't deal with it, they were better than us and there are no complaints.

"The disappointing thing for me which is non-negotiable is that nobody should outwork you, but they did.

"The players were all apologising to each other but performances like that won't be tolerated.

"Somebody from our step will get to the final and we were capable of going on. It would have been nice to be in the competition come January like last year.

"We didn't think we'd lose 4-0 and nothing we did to alter the team had an impact."

Westfields found themselves behind after just five minutes through Chris Anastasi and 2-0 behind going the break when Connor Brown-Wingfield cut inside from the right and unleashed a fine shot low into the far corner.

Westfields’ best chance in the first half fell to Ben Hayes who went through on goal but the Leicester keeper was equal to the shot.

After the break the young Leicester side went further ahead when Tariq Wilson hit them on the counter-attack.

Kane Kahaki then conceded a penalty allowing Anastasi to make it four.

Ilkeston also missed a shot at getting to Wembley as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Eastwood Community, but have won their last two in the league.

"Hopefully our players realise that it doesn't matter how good you are playing you have got to work hard," added Bevan.

"Ilkeston will come to our place with a very good team but we have got to work harder and if we do that we give ourselves a chance."
