WELLINGTON Rangers maintained their steady progress in the Hereford Times Hereford-shire League Premier Division with three hard-earned points from a narrow 1-0 win over visiting Ledbury Town Reserves.

Rangers created a fair amount of pressure in the first half but found the Town side's defence in good form. In fact the visitors may well have taken the lead when a breakaway left them one-on-one with James Morgan, but the keeper was equal to the task.

It was a similar story in the second half, the only difference being a crucial strike from the in-form Kenny Styles, who went in bravely to head home with the keeper in close attendance. Owen Jones was guilty of missing good chances for the home side.

A stunning 35-yard strike from Kevin Jinks helped Westfields to a 2-1 midweek home win against Ledbury Town Reserves.

Westfields, who are level on points with Woofferton at the top of the table, controlled the first half but had to wait until the stroke of half-time before finding a way past a resolute Town defence.

Wes Owen ran on to a Jinks pass and calmly slotted the ball past the visitor's goalkeeper.

Ledbury were back on level terms when Pat Lock received the ball unmarked at the back-post, and took his time before slipping the equaliser past Rory Hollingshead.

Jinks put the home side back in front on the hour mark with a left-foot volley worthy of winning any game, and leaving the visitors with nothing to show for another battling performance.

Bottom side Weston's woes continued when they went down 3-0 at mid-table Bromyard Town Reserves.

Weston have now picked up just two points from their eight matches to date.
