Windsor suffered their first home league defeat of the season on Saturday going down 1-0 to Westfield.
Forced into making a late change to the starting line-up, Jason Sheehan replaced Billy Canavan, with Amin Khomsi moving to Left back. It was from the left full back position that the only goal of the game came, after just two minutes. A low cross turned in smartly at the near post by Westfield???s Rob Parrot.
Westfield had a number of chances to increase their lead but failed to beat the impressive Dennison between the sticks for Windsor. Windsor did come close in the first half; Barry Dunbar with a back post header following neat work by Kyle Lucas. Dunbar also looked set for a run on goal moments later when a jinking run by Omar Riaz and pinpoint pass got stuck under his feet on the edge of the 18 yard area.
Windsor came out for the second half with more purpose and drive. Charlie Samuel firing wide from the edge of the box, Dunbar inches away from a Lucas cross.
At the other end, Dennison kept Windsor just the one goal behind. Fine saves from Parrot, Thumwood and Kirby. One triple save worthy of a round of applause from Stuart Norman in the Westfield goal.
Travis Richardson-Hodge replaced Dunbar and his looping deflected effort cleared the cross bar by inches. Adam Kirby and Charlie Graves posed threats at Windsor??? corners, but in truth, Norman was untroubled.
A game Westfield will feel they should have won more comfortably and at the same time Windsor will feel they could have avoided defeat!
