WESTFIELDS overcame a difficult festive double-header to maintain their unbeaten Hellenic League Premier Division status.

Phil Glover's side twice came from behind to snatch a 2-2 draw at Lydney on Boxing Day.

And then two days later fought to a 3-1 win over top-four rivals Shrivenham.

"It was a test for us from a management side too with it being our first year going into the busy Christmas period," said Glover.

"Two games in three days at any level is tough and more so at non-league.

"But the lads have been really good."

Lydney, led by former Westfields favourite Richard Kear as player/manager provided a tough Boxing Day test.

Kear led the attack and fired his side into a 12th minute lead after escaping his marker and slotting home.

A double change after the break saw the pace of Dan Stoneman and Baidoo King introduced.

Stoneman got free on the left hand side, cut inside and his fierce low drive went in off the far post to level the tie.

However, it was the Foresters took the lead when a freak goal allowed Frankie Johnson to tap home.

With 10 minutes remaining Stoneman turned provider setting up King for the equaliser.

"We have drawn against Lydney twice who have raised their game against us with it being a local derby," added Glover.

"We were a bit rusty having not played for three weeks, the conditions were tough and the pitch was heavy.

"So we saw it as a point gained rather than two dropped."

Two days later Fields got back to winning ways with a win at Shrivenham.

With an even first half coming to a close Fields struck twice with Kane Khaki sliding his effort home before Richard Greaves doubled their advantage.

After the break Westfields keeper Joe Gorman pulled off a penalty save before Greaves fired his side out of sight.

Despite the hosts pulling a goal back defenders Ryan Green and Kahaki steered their side to victory.

"It was a difficult place to go and I was impressed with them going forward," added Glover.

Fields were without influential player Craig Jones over the Christmas period.

Jones has stepped back from the game due to work and family commitments.
