MALVERN TOWN 0, STOURBRIDGE 3 MALVERN started brightly and in the fourth minute Stourbridge's keeper Lewis Solly was forced into a fine save, turning the ball round the post for a corner.

Two minutes later home captain Jamie Hyde played the ball through to Chris Allen whose shot on the turn forced another good save from Solly.

Stourbridge took the lead in the eighth minute when they were awarded a free-kick which was played into the box for Nathan Bennett to head past the advancing keeper Craig Humphries.

Malvern, with the wind in their favour, continued to press and Danny Moon's free-kick from 40 yards caught out Solly and the keeper could only parry the ball but no Malvern player could reach the loose ball.

Two minutes later Moon hit a 25-yard screamer just wide and, a minute later, Kevin Jones passed the ball to Hyde whose cross found Moon, but the Malvern man was denied by Solly.

In the 24th minute, Stourbridge played the ball down the left and crossed into the area where James Dyson fired home into the far corner of the net.

Malvern continuing to press and forced Damien Whitcombe to head just over his own bar.

At the start of the second-half, the ball was played into Malvern's box and first Andy Crowther and then Craig Humphries cleared the ball.

Even playing against the wind, Malvern tried to press and in the 64th minute Tom Lacey fired the ball across the goal.

In the 66th minute, Stourbridge's Gavin Winsper received his second yellow card of the game, followed by red, after a clash with Bryan Craven.

The Glassboys' manager, Gary Hackett, was also ordered off the bench for disputing the dismissal with the referee.

Twelve minutes from time, Stourbridge were awarded a free-kick just outside the box but Humphries turned Leon Broadhurst's shot round the post. Four minutes later, after good work by Malvern James, Hyde shot over the bar.

In the 89th minute, Malvern's defence failed to clear the ball in their area and Broadhurst fired home to give Stourbridge a three-goal win.

Malvern were left to wonder how they could dominate a game and come away with nothing.
