WESTFIELDS manager Andy Bevan felt his side got their reward after Aidan Thomas equalised two minutes from time against Worcester City.

The draw meant that Fields all but confirmed their fourth place finish prior to their final league match at Coventry Sphinx on Saturday.

"It was really positive at the end of the day," said Bevan.

"It was our 23rd game at home this season and we have only lost five and conceded 28 goals.

"We kept plugging away and we got our rewards with a very well worked goal.

"We passed it from the back and it was a great finish. It was a fair draw and it would have been harsh for either side to lose the game.

"We have had a good season but drew too many games to get close to the top.

"But it's our highest finish since the club finished runners up six or seven years ago.

"It was a tough game as they wanted to get revenge from when we beat them 6-1 and the pitch didn't help us as it was a bit bobbly."

Fields goalkeeper Ian Havard kept his side level in the first half with a finger-tip save from close range.

The game sprang to life in the 62nd minute when Sam Rawlings bundled over Jordan Harrison and the referee awarded a penalty which Harrison dispatched into the bottom corner of the net to give City the lead.

Worcester looked to be heading to an away victory as Fields failed to create any good chances.

However, late in the game Andy Bevan introduced substitutes Matt Reeve, Alex Hainault and Ollie Butler who injected more pace into the tie.

With two minutes remaining Butler played through Thomas who turned smartly and hammered the ball into the roof of the net.

Westfields welcomed the Mayor of Hereford, Councillor Sue Boulter, and the Mayor of Worcester, Jabbar Riaz, who led both teams out onto the pitch to start the game.

The Mayor’s charities were also boosted by a collection.

After the game the Westfields Football Club Supporters’ Club presented their Player of the Year award to Craig Jones.

Bevan's side will be looking to seal cup glory when they face Pegasus Juniors in the HFA County Challenge Cup final at Edgar Street on Tuesday.

"We're not going to underestimate Pegasus and Mick Panniers has done a good job there," added Bevan.

"We want to get a trophy as we haven't had one in years so it's massive for us."
