WESTFIELDS showed their versatility during a 2-2 pre-season friendly draw with Worcester Raiders behind closed doors on Saturday.

Missing four central defenders Fields pulled Joel Edwards to lead the line at the back with a trialist also making his debut at Allpay Park.

Phil Glover's side got off to the worst possible start when they lost the ball in the middle of the pitch and Stephen Sarkodie was lobbed for the fourth minute opener.

At the other end former Westfields goalkeeper Matt Gwynne was forced into action to deny Aidan Thomas.

Gwynne was then controversially judged to have handled outside the box resulting in a free-kick on the edge of the box.

Edwards rolled the ball back for Billy Murphy to drive home his 13th minute equaliser.

West Midlands Premier side Raiders regained the lead on 66 minutes when a clever move released their striker to slot home.

The visitors were ahead for just seven minutes when Fields replied again with substitute Richard Greaves pulling a Thomas cross back for Emanuel Bam to slide home.

Bam came closest to a winner and had the goalkeeper beaten again but this time saw his effort sail over the bar.

"It was a really good test," said Westfields assistant manager Paul Willetts.

"They were well organised, quite physical and we had a few players that we were looking at and a few out so we're really pleased with how it went today.

"It was exactly what we were after at this stage of the season and it was a good opportunity for some to get some minutes and it answered a few questions as well.

"It was a different role today for Joel (Edwards) today, we played him central and that was needs must as we had four central defenders out today.

"One of the key things when we look at players is their versatility, can they play in one or two maybe three or four positions if we can and that proved today."
