Westfields 2– (Cuss 30, Sirrell 42)
Tipton 1– (Singh 84)
In the same week that their MFL Cup Semi Final opponents was announced, Westfields picked up a 2-1 victory over a Tipton Town side who are struggling at the bottom of the table.
Fields started the game playing free flowing attacking football, keeping possession well with real intent on going forward. A diagonal ball from Joel Edwards found the feet of Carl Morgan who rolled the ball into Craig Jones who struck the post with his right foot shot.
Good interchange on the edge of the box between Jones and Jamie Cuss saw Cuss find space inside the area before seeing his effort well saved by Tipton Keeper Hayfield.
Fields took the lead on the 30th minute when Tom Boyle’s adventurous run down the left hand side resulted in the ball being rolled back to Cuss who taps the ball home from 4 yards out.
Tipton’s first chance of the half fell to Singh who agonisingly diverted Pugh’s cross inches wide of the Rivers’ post.
Moments before Half Time and Fields were two in front. Zac Sirrell surges towards the edge of the 18 yard box before sending his low shot under the hand of the diving Hayfield.
HT: Westfields 2-0 Tipton Town
Minutes after the interval Sirrell brings a good save from Hayfield before Boyle sent his rebound back into the body of the Tipton stopper.
Tipton danger man Singh creates another threat to Fields goal as he produced an acrobatic save from Harvey Rivers.
After a brief threat from Tipton, Fields were back on top when Tom Boyle found space on the edge of the box before disappointingly dragging his shot wide of the post.
Shortly after Carl Morgan saw his low cross fall to the feet of Cuss who mishits the rolling ball into the path Sirrell who blazes over from 6 yards.
Tipton have one last attempt to get back into the game as they pull a goal back through Singh in the 84th minute. Singh glided past two Fields defenders before slotting past the on rushing Rivers.
Singh’s solitary goal wasn’t enough for Tipton who were brushed aside by a organised Westfields team.
