Fourth time lucky?
1:27pm Friday 13th September 2013 in Sport
MALVERN Town hope their luck will turn when Wolverhampton Casuals visit tomorrow (3pm) after a third defeat in a row.
Les Jones’ side lost 2-1 at Wellington in the West Midlands Football League Premier Division following Saturday’s 5-2 FA Vase exit to Coleshill Town.
Malvern felt their recent performances deserved better but went one down inside five minutes on a cold, blustery evening in Herefordshire.
Louis Loader’s cross-shot was caught by keeper Craig Hill who quickly booted it downfield for striker Saul Thomas to fire home.
Malvern defended stoutly against a swirling wind and Dave Reynolds fired just over for the visitors who dominated much of the second period when the conditions were favouring them.
Keeper Hill was penalised for handball and saved Loader’s resulting free-kick before Oliver Endacott struck the bar.
But Wellington grabbed a second goal against the run of play 10 minutes from time through Thomas.
Reynolds was denied before he slotted home Malvern’s only reply on 87 minutes.
