WESTFIELDS were left frustrated after their title rivals gained ground following a 1-1 home draw with mid-table side Flackwell Heath on Saturday.

Fields, looking for a third league win on the bounce, started brightly with King Baidoo crashing an effort against the bar and post.

However, Flackwell took a shock lead on the 28th minute through Ashley Howell and despite Richard Greaves pulling Fields level nine minutes later the leaders failed to find a winner.

"It was a frustrating afternoon and I felt we had enough to win the game," said Westfields manager Phil Glover.

We haven't fell behind many times this season and we're not used to it,

"It's not what we want to do but the lads reacted well and we had a couple of chances before and after their goal.

"We hit the post and the bar and had clear cut chances. On another day those chances go in and we're not left frustrated.

"If we had been more clinical in and around the box then it would have been a different story.

"But it's another point on the board."

Westfields' draw allowed title rivals Binfield and Fairford Town to both reduce the gap over Glovers' side who are still unbeaten in the league.

Binfield sit 13 points behind the leaders, but have four games in hand, while Fairford Town are four points further adrift.

Westfields still have to host Fairford Town later this month before Binfield visit Allpay Park in the penultimate league game of the season.

"The league is now between us three and all we can do is keep our results coming and take care of ourselves," added Glover.

"The other sides have games in hand but will have to play them in midweek. All we can do is affect the results in which we play in and when we play them.

"Our lads are focused on maintaining our own standards. We have got to earn the right to win football games whether they are at home or away and prepare right."

This weekend Westfields head to fifth placed Brackley Town Saints.
