Westfields 0

Quorn AFC 0

ATT: 142

A fiery League encounter between Westfields and Quorn AFC disappointingly ended 0-0 despite numerous amount of chances and two red cards.

It was Dean Lee who started the brightest down the left hand side for Fields, several early attacking runs causing problems for the Quorn Full back. Lee was in the thick of the action minutes later as his cross met the head of Corbett who failed to direct his header on target.

Continued pressure saw Craig Jones whip in cross/shot that well saved by Pearson shortly before Matt Reeve unleashed 25 yard thunderbolt that was matched with a fantastic athletic save from the Quorn stopper.

All this Fields pressure was put on hold as Harvey Rivers had to dive low to make smart save to deny the incoming Kris Nurse.

Wasteful passing in the middle of the park saw Quorn pick up a series of much needed possession in an attempt to go in front.

Minutes later Fields saw a chance to go in front scarpered as Joel Edwards saw his glancing header cleared off the line by a covering defender.

Just before Half Time Quorn see a series of chances blocked by the Westfields back four before the ball falls to Craig Attwood who sends his shot wide of the post.

Two minutes after the restart Fields should have been in front, against all odds New signing Corbett smashed his close range shot straight against the crossbar. The early pressure continued as Carl Morgan was put through down the right hand side, the trick winger hesitated twice before sending a weak left foot shot into the keepers body.

Quorn had a great chance to go in front as Harvey Rivers’ mis-hit fell into the path of a Quorn Midfielder who sent his curling effort inches wide of the far post.

Moments after his mis-hit Rivers was called into action once again, this time making an outstanding fingertip save to deny Quorn from going in front.

A half chance for Fields as Craig Jones wriggles his way into the Quorn box before sending his tame effort agonisingly wide of the far post.

Mid-way through the Second Half the game was turned on it’s head as Fields Keeper Rivers was sent off for bringing down a Quorn Striker inside his area. Captain Jamie Cuss sprinted over to Rivers to take over between the sticks. To the amazement of allpay.park stand in Keeper Jamie Cuss kept out the resulting Penalty with an outstanding diving save.

As Quorn continued to press forward, Striker Liam Turner found himself in acres of space before sending his shot over.

10 minutes before the end, Quorn also went down to 10 men as Midfielder Sam Hollis was sent off for a high foot on Fields Debutant Powell.

Quorn Sub Liam Read had a great chance to win the game as he found space on the edge of the box before narrowly firing wide.

Eager to win the game, both teams continued to press forward, but with no cutting edge the game ended 0-0 keeping Fields in 10th place, one place and point behind Quorn.
