WESTFIELDS suffered FA Vase heartbreak once again as Coventry United knocked them out the competition on penalties.

Westfields had also been eliminated from the FA Cup this season by Coventry United and were looking to gain revenge.

However, Phil Glover's side were left ruing wasting several opportunities to have won the tie both in the 90 minutes and in the penalty shootout.

Westfields were without leading goal scorer Josh Hunt for the second Saturday in a row and again paid the penalty for missed goal scoring opportunities as they outplayed the home side at times but failed to convert in front of goal.

New signing Jamie Bird made his mark on the side with the winger along with Dan Stoneman forcing saves from the Coventry goalkeeper.

Harrison Summers latched onto a Richard Greaves pass and rounded the keeper but his shot hit the post with the goal at his mercy.

Coventry too had their moments and Fields' goalkeeper lan Havard saved well from point blank range.

The hosts had another opportunity from a free-kick, but the chance was missed at the far post.

After a goalless first half Westfields should have opened the scoring three minutes into the second half when Bird laid on a perfect pass to Greaves who was through on goal but the marksman hit his shot inches wide of the post.

After that Matt McDonald Bird and Greaves had chances.

Coventry punished the missed chances and Dominic Perkins fired home after Havard had punched clear a free-kick.

The game was set up for an exciting end when Westfields hit back and when the clock was ticking down on came Cawley Cox.

The youngster equalised when the Coventry goalkeeper failed to hold a Bird 25-yard screamer and Cox was on hand to send the game to penalties.

In the shootout Westfields still had chances to have won as Coventry missed the target on three occasions.

However, the host's goalkeeper redeemed his team-mates by making three saves.

In sudden death Coventry went on to win 5-4.
