Coventry Sphinx will make a 160 mile round trip on Thursday evening for a rearranged fixture against Westfields in Hereford. This is one of our longest away trips of the season and we head to Hereford in 6th place in the Midland Football League Premier Division. Westfields are in 9th place but will go to just one point behind Coventry Sphinx if they can win the game.
Westfields were in action as recently as Tuesday night and they returned from Staffordshire with a 4-2 win against bottom club Rocester. That was their first win in four matches after draws against Loughborough University and Rocester and a narrow 1-0 defeat at Worcester City. Prior to that, they had three consecutive wins with impressive results against Rugby Town, Sporting Khalsa and Stourport Swifts. The Westfields home form has been good again this season with 10 wins from their 16 fixtures. They have scored 45 goals in their 16 league fixtures at Allpay Park.
The sides met in late January at Sphinx Drive and Sphinx thought they done enough to win thanks to a Ryan Harkin goal but a 90th minute penalty salvaged a point for Westfields that day.
