ADAM Sauntson’s stoppage time goal at bottom-of-the-table Hallen ensured Malvern Town won their second away win in two days to reignite their play-off push.

Town had lost four games in a row before last weekend’s 2-0 win at second-placed Bradford Town and were languishing down in ninth position in the table despite being second just a couple of months ago.

But defender Sauntson met Louis Loaders’ free-kick deep into stoppage time to secure a vital three points.

The win takes them up to sixth, just a point outside the play-off places and they return home this weekend after four consecutive away games when Westbury United visit.

Neither keeper was really tested in the opening exchanges before the visitors so nearly went ahead as Kyonn Evans rounded the keeper before seeing his shot come back off the post.

It became an end-to-end affair from there but with 30 minutes on the clock, Town went ahead when Phil Harris' long-throw was flicked home by Sauntson for his first.

Malvern were doing their fare share of defending but juts five minutes after the break the hosts equalised through Troy Simpson.

Both sides were creating chances but neither could find the crucial third goal.

Town introduced Harry Clark to the action which seemed to galvanise the team and then with time almost up, Malvern were awarded a free-kick in a dangerous position.

Loader delivered and Sauntson met it to score the crucial goal and earn his side all three points.
