Andrews uses his head to put Westella through
TOM Andrews was the hero for Westella Hanson as he hit a 93rd-minute winner at Mickleover Royals to book their place in the Baris Challenge Cup third round draw.
In what was always going to be a entertaining game, the Black Dragon Southern league hosts fielded numerous players from their first team.
Westella soaked up the early pressure and were well marshalled by the outstanding Dave Clement for the first 15 minutes.
Westella's first break forward resulted in a 16th-minute corner and Bobby Stevenson delivered a perfect ball into the area which was volleyed through a crowded box of players by Alex Wood and flew past the Mickleover keeper into the net.

After 20 minutes, Westella gave away a stupid free-kick in a dangerous area and an inch-perfect delivery saw the Royals' striker get in front of his markers to glance a header past Rick Watson.
The game became very scrappy with both teams failing to hit the target and make either goalkeeper work.
Westella had a massive let-off on 35 minutes when Mickleover had a long effort at goal which squirmed under Watson and just went out for a corner.
Shortly after, Tom Dent had to be replaced after receiving some hefty challenges with a suspected broken hand and possible broken foot, to be replaced by Chris Spinks.
Moments later, Westella finally took a hold on the game and Matt Fyvie got the ball out on the left, before switching the ball out to the right wing to Wood who took one touch, cut inside two opponents and rifled a 25-yard screamer across the Royals keeper which flew in to the top corner after 41 minutes.
Mickleover found an equaliser on 70 minutes with a similar goal to their first. An inch-perfect delivery from the right was headed home to make it 2-2.
Westella were reduced to 10 men soon after when Andy Bagshaw made a pointless, late tackle leaving Westella a huge task to see out the last 10 minutes.
Westella soaked up the pressure and secured a corner with what was their final attack in injury-time.
Stevenson delivered the corner which came back to him and with one touch he whipped a deep cross to the back post for Andrews to guide a perfect header between the keeper and the post for a memorable winner.
