MALVERN Town suffered a third league defeat in a row on Saturday as they conceded two late goals at Westbury United in a thrilling contest.

The Hillsiders had fought back from 3-1 down in the second-half to be level at 3-3 with ten minutes to go after Jack Watts' second of the day from the penalty spot.

But Bradley Norris scored twice in the closing stages to clinch the three points for Westbury.

It means Malvern have now lost three games in the Southern League Division One South on the spin, conceding 10 goals in the process.

It was an even start, with neither keeper called into action until the 24th minute, when Keiron Blackburn was picking the ball out of his net after Callum Demkiv broke through and rounded the Malvern number one before walking the ball in.

Jack Watts forced the ball over the line after a goalmouth scramble to level matters, but Joseph Stradling but Westbury back ahead just before the break. 

Demkiv had a third after their early second-half pressure eventually told, but Town pulled one back through Jack Horrell.

Blackburn continued his remarkable penalty-saving record soon after, preventing Norris from re-establishing the two-goal advantage. 

It has been a chaotic start to life in the Southern League for Malvern and with 11 minutes to go, they made it 3-3 when Watts slotted home from the spot.

Malvern's tails were up but they were not level for long as Norris put Westbury ahead.

The Hillsiders were left chasing a point but they would leave without one as Norris made sure of the victory in the 88th minute.
