Swifts lose out to late winner
Stourport Swifts 0 Westfields 1 MPL Tues 19th February Att: 75
Stourport Swifts went down to a late goal from Westfields striker Aidan Thomas in a close fought match at Walshes Meadow on Tuesday night.
Third placed Westfields were desperate for points to maintain their title challenge, but were pinned back in their own half for much of the first 45 minutes.
Lewis Platt shot narrowly wide after he burst through the Westfields defence in the 14th minute, and Nick Macpherson was inches from converting a cross from Lewis Clarke on the right.
Westfields only real effort to note in the first half was a Ben Miller effort comfortably held by Dom Richards after working an opening from a short corner.
The visitors came back into the game after the break, but Fulloway and Matt Hanson looked solid against a three pronged attack which featured recent Hereford striker John Mills.
R’mar Murray just failed to reach a dangerous cross from Canavan as Swifts threatened, and minutes later Canavan himself was just about to pull the trigger when he was robbed by a last ditch tackle from defender Sam Gwynne.
A goalless draw looked most likely before in the 87th minute Thomas cut inside from the left to fire a curling shot in off the post past Richards from 20 yards.
