Cup excitement building at Westfields

Westfields FC have been drawn against Long Eaton United in Midland Football League Cup Semi Final writes NLD Blogger Rhys Williams

After beating Stourport Swifts last Tuesday courtesy of a Marcus Palmer strike, Westfields FC have been awarded with a Semi Final tie against high flying Long Eaton United. The dates of this tie are TBC.

This Cup Semi Final will be concluded over two legs with Westfields travelling to Derbyshire first before playing the second leg at allpay.park.

Westfields have faced Long Eaton twice already this season, losing away and winning at home. So in my opinion this Cup tie will be a decider on who wins this seasons head to head battle between the two sides.

Westfields recent form reflects the season they've had, from losing 6-1 to Causeway United last week to beating Rocester 7-0 earlier on this season.

With consistency being a problem for Westfields it will be interesting to see how they get on against a Long Eaton side whose last outing saw them pick up an impressive 0-1 victory over League leaders Basford United.

Honestly I couldn't put money on who will win this tie, with both teams having excellent players at their disposal it's hard for me to give a definite answer. But I am confident that if Westfields are on the top of their game over the two legs they will have no problems in progressing through to the Final.

As Media Manager at Westfields I am extremely excited about the tie, two teams who like the get the ball down and play football, what's not to get excited about ?. Also the chance of getting to a Final is always one worth taking in my opinion.
