LUCKLESS Lye Town lost out to a 94th minute winner against second placed Westfields in the Total Motion Midland League Premier Division.

Craig Jones converted a last gasp winner for the Hereford based side after Lewis Worsey had clawed Lye back level on 83 minutes.

Lye manager Andy Wyton said: "The lads were completely gutted - but that said it was a great game of football between two good sides, both of whom went flat out for the winner.

"I cannot moan because we played really well and put pressure on Westfields whenever possible.

"We had a great chance to go 1-0 up right on half time when Jack Till was put clean through with only their goalkeeper to beat, but he put the ball the wrong side of the post.

"It was a defining moment in the game because had we scored from that chance Westfields would have been forced to change their style of play.

"However, if we continue to play like we did against Westfields we will do well.

"In fact we haven't played badly since the defeat to Stourport Swifts. We just need a change of luck."

Lye progressed in the Smedley Crook Cup earlier in the week when they beat Bewdley Town 3-0.

Croatian striker Dreniz Bala returned to the attack and scored twice with Jack Till also on target.

Wyton rang the changes, bringing several players back into the side including Adam Meacham and Leigh Pardoe.

Lye were due to face lowly Long Eaton Town this week before making the short journey to Wolverhampton based Old Wulfrunians on Saturday.

Wyton has also appointed loyal Grant Joshua as his assistant manager following the departure of Kevin Ashley.

Joshua has previously played under Wyton at Dudley Town, Gornal Athletic and Cradley Town.
