Westfield v Horley Town

Damaging Defeat

A negative result is difficult to take but it was more the manner in which it happened against a team certain in my mind to be champions that really disappointed.
Understandably this was always a major test for the side particularly following the recent schedule that had noticeably affected the players the previous Saturday .
Early on whilst giving up the possession stats we had looked quite assured and bar one save from distance comfortably made by George Hyde we hadnt really been troubled . Granted we hadn't shown much in the way of an attacking force but this was a game for discipline , resilience and sound decision making all of which for the first half an hour was on show. However in the space of four minutes the game plan was shot to pieces by two inexplicable lapses that a strong Westfield side were always going to take advantage of.
A deficit of two at the break was always a challenge to overhaul but a tactical switch had seen the desired results in the opening exchanges of the second period with possession now in the balance but with Horley Town having slightly the better of it from an attacking sense.
As with any plan for it to work it needs to be stuck to and carried out with trust and belief , and that is where it started to go wrong. Without explanation the Horley side decided to apply their own formula for success or possibly quite simply got bored of what they were asked to do . Whatever the reason it lead inevitably to Westfield regaining the advantage and enjoying a final twenty five minutes in which they comfortably added three further goals.
A night to forget and work to be done this Saturday to kick start again the league campaign.
