WESTFIELDS manager Phil Glover says he relishes the selection problems his side have given him ahead of their FA Vase game at Long Eaton on Saturday.

Fields go into the fourth round tie on the back of a 1-0 friendly victory over Longlevens on Saturday.

Substitute Keanu Cooper scored the games' only goal.


This came just two days after beating Ewyas Harold 6-0 in the HFA County Cup.

Aidan Thomas scored a hat-trick in the county cup quarter-final.

Glover has been surprised how fit his side has come back after a long break in action.

“I know the lads in this day and age look after themselves a lot more than when I was playing,” said Glover.

“They came back in really good shape, trained really well and we had an in-house friendly in the first game back.

“We were really surprised with the tempo and the quality of what they came back which was positive.”

Brad Birch is one of the players Glover has brought in along with goalkeeper Brandon Powell to help boost his squad ahead of the crunch tie.

Glover says that he enjoys the selection headache they have given him.

“We have brought a couple of lads in as we have a few injuries and niggles which were long-term and we’ve picked up a few over the last couple of week," added Glover.

“We knew that after such a long lay off to have injuries and a few niggles with games and training in short succession.

“We’ve had a three-week condensed period to get it right for a big game.

“We’ve got a selection headache but I’m not shy from that.

“I want the headache as it means as a club we’re in the best possible shape.”

Midlands Football League side Long Eaton prepared for the FA Vase clash with a 5-3 win against Loughborough Dynamo.

“I think Long Eaton will have prepared right and we know a bit about them," added Glover

“Obviously we can’t go and see them and they’re in the same boat.

“It’s about us and what we do which we worry about first and foremost every game.

“It’s going there and it’s a one off, all the boys are buzzing about it already.

“We’ll be going there and doing everything in our power to make sure we get the result.”
