SECOND-half braces from Dave Reynolds and Matt Turner helped Malvern Town extend their unbeaten run to 12 games.

Town won 4-0 at Bilston Town Community on a windy afternoon in the West Midlands League Premier Division.

Reynolds opened the scoring shortly after the restart before Turner doubled their advantage five minutes later.

Just before the hour mark Reynolds increased the lead and Turner completed the scoring on 64 minutes.

“We struggled a bit during the first half,” admitted co-manager Lee Hooper.

“It may have been because of the conditions with a strong wind and bobbly surface to deal with.

“This made it difficult for us to move the ball quickly through the middle of the park.

“The lads at the back did well during the opening period to keep us on level terms with Charlie Weaver also sweeping well in goal.

“It meant we were able to go in at the break and regroup. We changed our formation for the second half and the lads adapted well to it.

“We also stepped up the work-rate and went on to dominate the game.

“We scored four decent goals and should have had more in the end if we are being critical but we were delighted to come away with all three points and now we move on to the next game.

“The travelling fans really got behind us well and we thank them for their valued support.”

A scrappy first half saw Harry Clark shoot wide while Reynolds, Louis Loader and Turner were denied by keeper Mark Brack.

Playing against the wind in the second period, Reynolds' stunning volley from more than 30 yards opened the scoring on 49 minutes.

Turner ran onto a ball over the defence to score from 25 yards five minutes later.

Just three minutes later Reynolds headed in Clark's cross before Turner completed the scoring by turning in Aaron Griffiths' low cross via the bar.

Fourth-placed Malvern host local rivals Hereford Lads Club in eighth on Saturday (3pm).
