LEE Hughes popped up with a 94th minute winner for 10-man Stourport Swifts as Malvern Town were dumped out of the Worcestershire Senior Cup in mid-week.

Veteran striker Hughes, formerly of Worcester City, reacted quickest to a blocked shot in the Malvern box to prod home and secure Swifts' progression to the quarter-finals, where they will face Redditch United.

Stourport took the lead early doors through Jack Storer before he was later sent-off in the half for dissent.

Town's Matt Turner smashed a penalty against the bar as the visitors chased an equaliser but Joe Bullock stuck right on the half-time whistle to level levelled matters.

But Hughes plunged a dagger into Malvern hearts deep into stoppage time to send his side through, leaving manager Lee Hooper frustrated at a number of wasted chances.

“We started a little too flat for my liking,” he said.

“But once we got into our stride, we created chances and I thought that both goalkeepers did well and made some good saves.

“It was an end-to-end game; we set out to take the game to them and we were dealing with things quite well, but ultimately it came down to us not taking our chances.

“It was one of those nights where it just didn’t fall for us. That said, you have to give credit to our hosts because they hung on well with ten men and got their reward right at the end."

Malvern have more cup action this weekend as they make the trip to Whitchurch Alport in the Buildbase FA Vase second-round.
