WESTFIELDS returned to winning ways with a confidence boosting 3-0 away victory at Chipping Sodbury.

After two consecutive defeats Phil Glover’s side were boosted by the return of Joel Edwards at the heart of the Fields’ defence and the former Hereford FC skipper marked his return with a goal .

In fact it was Edwards who broke the deadlock in the 34th minute when he rose above the Chipping Sodbury defence to head home a Dan Stoneman corner.

Fields almost extended the lead before the break but a Matt McDonald shot was well saved by the home keeper.

Just before the interval Chipping Sodbury were reduced to 10 men when Kean Ashwood was red carded following a foul on McDonald followed by foul language to the match referee.

After the break Glover’s side stepped up the pressure and after a number of fine saves by the home keeper Fields extended their leader when Stoneman seized on mistake by the keeper before hammering the ball into an empty net to give his side a 2-0 lead.

Chipping Sodbury did come back into the game but they found Edwards and Joe Davies in top form at the heart of the defence.

Westfields wrapped up the game with a lovely third goal when Josh Hunt floated in a perfect cross and Steve Davies rose to head home to seal the points.

Not content with their exploits Fields continued to press and almost

made it four in the dying minutes when Morgan Evans threaded a ball through to substitute Rory Thompson whose first time shot was well saved by the home keeper.

Westfields deserved their 10 league win of the season and a boost in confidence going into the Christmas programme.
Next Saturday Glover’s side are on the road again when they travel to Bradford Town for another league game.
