With the season winding in, Malvern Town have managed to secure just one point out of a possible six over the past week.

A 3-0 away defeat to Mousehole and recovering from a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 with bottom-of-the-table Paulton Rovers left much to be desired with the slimmest of chances remaining for a play-off place with just two games remaining.

Town travelled down to Trungle Park to take on Mousehole on Saturday (April 13), backed by a solid group of supporters.

Despite early long-distanced efforts from Luke Payne and Joe Davies coming close, the home side broke the deadlock when Jack Calver managed to find the net despite Town goalkeeper Josh Bishop getting a hand to it.

Malvern fell further behind when Hayden Turner converted from the penalty spot, and additional misfortune mounted when Jordan Annear was forced off through injury and Reece King was issued a yellow card.

Bishop, who did all he could to keep the hosts out throughout the 90 minutes, was beaten deep into stoppage time when Mitch Beardmore added a third goal for Mousehole.

On Tuesday (April 16), after an unfruitful 500-mile round trip to Mousehole, Malvern next visited Paulton Rovers.

The hosts took the lead with their first opportunity as Leighton Thomas lofted the ball over Bishop.

Malvern went two goals down at the quarter-hour mark, when Jamarni Langlais fired home on the rebound after Thomas saw an effort saved.

Town started turning the tables at the 20-minute mark, when Lewis Platt played in Samson Hewett who coolly finished to reduce the deficit.

As the game wore on, Malvern managed to level the score when Jack Watts for a finished neatly.

Moments later Town thought they had secured the win when Adam Sauntson found the back of the net, but their efforts were thwarted by an offside call ruling out the goal.

Despite the hosts being reduced to ten men in the dying minutes, and a near score for Lewis Spurrier, the match concluded deadlocked.

With only two games remaining in an unforgiving season, at home against Westbury United and away at Willand Rovers, Town will have to have a range of results to go their way if promotion hopes via the play-offs are to stay alive.
