LEAMINGTON manager Paul Holleran felt his team just about deserved to beat Westfields in the FA Cup and the referee got the main decisions right.

Two late goals saw the National League North outfit beat Westfields 2-0 in the second qualifying round.

However, Westfields manager Sean Edwards felt Leamington goalkeeper Tony BreedEn should have been sent off for bringing down Richard Greaves in the first half.

Edwards' frustration was compounded in stoppage time when home defender Matt Sysum was dismissed for a foul that resulted in Leamington scoring their second goal from the penalty spot.

"When Tony got caught down the left hand channel, there were probably three or four Leamington defenders behind the ball," he said.

"The difference with the Westfields scenario was we broke with pace on the counter and the lad was the last man.

"That is why the referee had a different decision to make and I think he got them both right.

"The game was already spread at the end and the Westfields defender is stretched.

"He's made a decision to take the ball down and, even though it's looked harsh, he's got to stick to the rules."

Holleran added that Westfields gave his side a tough game.

"We were well aware how tough the challenge would be and were hoping that we could press early and maybe get the early breakthrough," he said.

"That didn't happen because they're a very resilient side.

"We also thought as the game went on, from the bench and when the game opened up, we could ask questions and that is what happened.

"It was a very even game for 70 minutes, they've had a great chance to go ahead, we've hit the bar and had a couple of chances.

"But for the last 20 minutes, with the players we've brought off the bench and with the change of putting Kieran Dunbar in the pocked behind Colby [Bishop] has influenced the game in our favour and I think we've just about run out worthy winners.

"We're well aware of what a good side Westfields are and how many sides at the same level or better than us that they've beaten here or taken to a replay.

"It was a tough game and if they keep those levels up, they won't be in the Midland League for long."
