Westfields v Highgate United minute by minute updates

By Ben Goddard

Last updated:

  • Westfields started brightly with Sam Rawlings working the ball out wide and crossing for Alex Hainault to go close.
  • Aidan Thomas looked to have beaten the off-side trap after seven minutes after being played through by Keanu Cooper but stumbled with the ball as the chance went begging.
  • United responded and Trevor Edwards felt his side deserved a penalty after his effort at goal was blocked on the line, by what he claimed was an arm.
  • Moments later Duane Courtney rose highest from a corner but headed wide.
  • Jordan Goddard was posing problems and saw his powerful effort saved comfortably.
  • Visiting striker Marco Adagio was denied an opener twice in a number of minutes firstly by an Ollie Butler block off the line and then a point blank Blackburn save.
  • At the other end Sam Plane also saw his effort blocked by a clearance off the line.
  • Fields were denied by the post on the 68th minute when Aidan Thomas saw his effort deflected onto the woodwork and then Craig Jones played the ball back to Ben Miller, who put his close range effort wide.
  • United looked just as likely to sneak the victory and would have had the lead inside the final 10 minutes, but for two last ditch clearences.
