WESTFIELDS manager Phil Glover knows the pressure is on the chasing pack to win their games in hand over runaway leaders Fields.

His side continued their unbeaten start to the season despite 'not being at the races' during a 1-1 draw with Easington Sports on Saturday.

The draw leaves Westfields 13 points above Binfield, who have four games in hand, and 16 points above Fairford Town, who have three games in hand.

Glover's side visit third place Fairford this weekend and the Westfields manager knows the feeling of having games in hand.

"We would certainly rather be in our position than the other way around," said Glover.

"As a player we had all those games in hand years ago during our FA Cup run. It means that the pressure builds so I'd rather have points on the board than chasing teams.

"We will just worry about ourselves, it's enough to worry about making sure we get ourselves right."

Westfields were held to a 1-1 draw at allpay.park on Saturday when Easington Sports made life difficult for the hosts as they remained resolute in defence.

‘Fields lacked their usual zest despite taking an early lead when King Baidoo fired his side into a 17th minute lead.

It looked like Westfields would go on and win comfortably after Aidan Thomas shot narrowly wide before the visiting keeper saved a powerful 20-yard shot from Thomas.

Easington Sports came back just before the break and nearly equalised but a breath-taking save by Steve Sarkodi in the Westfields goal produced a flying save which saw him tip the ball over the bar at the expense of a corner.

Twice the visiting keeper thwarted Westfields from increasing their lead when he made a fine finger-tip save at the foot of the post from Richard Greaves and then Aidan Thomas also shot narrowly wide.

Midway through the half Easington came back into the game with a looping effort from Josh Rose which put the two sides level and set up a frantic final 15 minutes when both sides had opportunities.
