WESTFIELDS were left ruing missed chances after a frustrating weekend saw them knocked out of the FA Cup and drop league points.

In Saturday's FA Cup preliminary round match against Lutterworth Town, the hosts dominated the early stages with Richard Greaves denied by the goalkeeper twice.

Ben Hayes eventually put Fields ahead in the 25th minute with a clinical finish after Greaves had put him through.

However, the momentum turned before the break when the visitors broke on the counter-attack and Jordan Small netted from the tightest of angles.

After the break Small put his side ahead from a cross then Lewis Samuels put his side 3-1 ahead.

Phil Glover's side rallied and Greaves pulled a goal back, but it was too late.

"We were very disappointed to be honest as we created chances in the first 25 minutes," said Glover.

"We had three good chances which we would have tucked away on another day. They came back and scored every chance they had.

"We certainly should be beating teams like that at home with the players we had on the pitch.

"FA Cup runs don't come around often in and you're playing time doesn't last forever.

"The league is our aim and there are no excuses now."

Two days later Westfields returned to Allpay Park to take on Lydney.

Glover's side were depleted by the absences of midfielders Craig Jones, Billy Murphy and Matt Reeve.

Fields had chances to win the game with Greaves and Aidan Thomas both failing to convert Hayes floating crosses.

After the break Thomas had two more openings but failed to find the net.

Substitute Ollie Price was then brought into the fray and he too had an opportunity to seize the points, but shot wide when well placed.

Lydney worked hard and could have stole the points at the death on the counter-attack.

Westfields travel to Brimscombe & Thrupp this weekend before a mid-week trip to Royal Wootton Bassett Town.

"We now have two tough fixtures away and we don't know much about the sides," Glover added.

"Sometimes playing away from home without the expectation and pressure can play into our hands."
