MALVERN Town manager Joey Rawle has strengthened the side by resigning former skipper John Hayes from County Sports.

Town have also put in a seven-day approach for a striker with another Banks's Brewery League Premier Division side.

Malvern visit Brierley Hill Town tomorrow (3pm), and will be without Steve Walker, but Sean Cotterill, Nick Clayton and Martin Phillpotts all return.

Goalkeeper Ross Sanders' suspected blood clot turned out to be a chest infection and after a course of antibiotics might be fit enough to return. Joe Maidment and Simon Judge face late fitness tests.

Malvern (from): Sanders, King, Higgins, Cotterill, Bastock, Damore, Clayton, D. Wade, Judge, Shepherd, Brooks, Ward, Slade, Congrave, Hayes, Maidment, Phillpotts, Thomas.
