BEWDLEY Town manager Phil Mullen hailed his team’s best performance of the season as they held high-flying Haughmond to a 2-2 draw in the West Midlands Premier on Tuesday evening.

While an injury-time strike denied them victory, the display thrilled the Town boss.

Jon Griffin fired them ahead early on and while Haughmond pulled a goal back, Bewdley went ahead again through Chris Seekings.

But a goal from a corner at the death denied them.

He said: “The display was fantastic, it was our best performance of the season.

“It’s just a shame for them we didn’t hold on for the win because they deserved it.”

The draw followed on from a 6-0 demolition of struggling Bilston Town Community last Saturday.

The Black Country unit had two sent off as Tom Connelly, Jason Wellings (2), Luke Morris (2) and Aaron Stubbins hit the back of the net.

The four points means 14th-placed Bewdley can still move up the table if they maintain their good form.

They host 15th-placed Black Country Rangers on Saturday aiming to open the gap.

Rangers brought in Tony Maffei and Pete Checketts as joint-bosses while the pair were coaching at Bewdley.

Mullen said: “Tony and Pete are good football people and they know us pretty well.

“But we’re ahead of them and I’d like to wide that gap.”

Chris Lojko missed the game with an ankle injury.
