GOALKEEPER Steve Sarkodie was once again Westfields hero saving two penalties as his side progressed in the FA Vase.

Phil Gover's side had to fight back from two goals down in the second round tie drawing the game 3-3 in normal time.

Lutterworth knocked Fields out of both the FA Vase and FA Cup last season.

The Leicestershire side stole a march scoring from the penalty spot after seven minutes before doubling their advantage before half-time.

However, Westfields responded with Richard Greaves firing home from the penalty spot five minutes into the second half.

Phil Glover's side were level a minute later with Umar Bassit firing home.

On the 62nd minute Greaves fired Fields into a 3-2 lead only for Lutterworth to equalise with minutes left on the clock.

However, Fields would have the final say with goalkeeper Sarkodie the hero making two penalty saves as as Fields won 5-4 in the penalty shootout.

Manager Phil Glover was delighted with the way his side responded after finding themselves two goals down at the break.

"The Vase is all about going through it doesn't matter how you do it," said Glover.

"The lads knew I wasn't happy at half-time but our lads performed well in the first half without creating a lot of chances.

"We had controlled the game which made it more frustrating that we gave away two soft goals.

"The penalty we gave the referee a decision to make although we thought it was outside the box.

"The free-kick was really soft and sneaked into the bottom corner.

"In the second half we needed to do things quicker and the players recognised that.

"They came out and dominated for 20 minutes, the lads could smell blood."

With Greaves scoring a brace and Bassit the other Fields thought they should have won the tie in normal time, but for a late equaliser by the hosts.

"We didn't feel threatened at all and had a couple of half chances," added Glover.

"We certainly felt comfortable and should have put the game to bed.

"However, it was a cup tie and Lutterworth togetherness and team spirit.

"They threw their goalkeeper up for a corner and really went for it.

"The ball squirmed between the defender and the post. For a neutral it was one hell of a game."

Westfields goalkeeper Sarkodi again earned the plaudits making two penalty saves during the shootout to earn his side a place in the third round.

"He's an outstanding goalkeeper and whoever I've spoke to about him says the same," added Glover talking about Sarkodi.

"He has got things to work on and that's why we as coaches are here to help him get better.

"Agility wise he's a top goalkeeper and he comfortably saved two penalties.

"The other lads also kept their nerve which is hard away from home in the Vase."
