Malvern set for Pegasus Juniors clash

Craig Gibbons 1st Mar, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

MALVERN Town are back in league action tonight (Tuesday) as they make the trip to Pegasus Juniors for a replay of a West Midlands (Regional) League game that was abandoned in January due to bad weather.

At the time, Malvern were leading 5-1 before the game was controversially called off after 66 minutes and was ordered to be replayed in full following a WMRL management committee meeting last month.

Malvern go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Premier Division leaders Shawbury United on Saturday.

However, boss Les Jones insisted there will be no bad blood between Malvern and Pegasus going into tonight’s game.

“It’s got to be treated as another game and we got to put what happened last time behind us,” he said.

“There is extra incentive for the players to go and beat Pegasus and it will be justice for us if we win.

“Pegasus have strengthened their squad since the last time we played them, so we expect a good local derby but there will be no bad blood between us.”

Ahead of Malvern’s trip to Old School Lane, midfielder Philip Harris and centre-back Dene Whittal-Williams are set to miss the game due to injury, while in-form striker Luke Corbett is to miss the clash due to prior commitments.
