Malvern Town suffer 2-1 loss in controversial replay clash

Malvern Editorial 2nd Mar, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

MALVERN Town suffered their second league defeat on the bounce after they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Pegasus Juniors in the West Midlands (Regional) Premier Division.

The match was a full replay of the initial league match played in January which was controversially abandoned after 66 minutes when Malvern were leading 5-1.

But The Hillsiders could not produce a similar scoreline on Tuesday night and have now slipped one place to ninth in the Premier Division.

Two goals from Pegasus Juniors’ Sam Pearson either side of a Dave Reynolds penalty for Malvern lifted the home side up to sixth place – three points clear of Malvern.

On Saturday, Malvern will look to get back to winning ways when they face Staffordshire side Stone Old Alleynians who are currently 12th in the league.

Meanwhile, promotion chasing AFC Bridgnorth beat Bromyard Town 10-1 on Tuesday.

League leaders Shawbury United, who beat Malvern 1-0 last weekend, take on Bilston Town Community tonight (Wednesday).
