WOLVES Sporting Community find themselves level pegging with Malvern Town on top of the table  following their 4-2 triumph over Ellesmere Rangers.

Karl Bailey fired Shropshire side Ellesmere in front with his 24th league goal of the season before Wolves Sporting went onto take charge.

Chadd Birch converted twice to put Wolves Sporting 2-1 in front at the break before further goals from Angelo Franko and Dimitri Dunkley sealed the points.

Sporting now head the pack on goal difference after Malvern suffered the frustration of their game at Pegasus Juniors being called off following another weekend decimated by the weather.

As a result, the season has been extended by a further week and will now finish on May 5.

Ellesmere now drop out of the top six after being overtaken by ice with a couple of close range shots.

Dudley Town recovered to collect a precious point in their battle to beat the drop with a 1-1 draw at Hereford side Wellington.

Jack Bailey put  Wellington in front before Jordan Davies levelled matters but Dudley still remain rooted in the bottom two places by virtue of  goal difference behind Stone Old Alleynians, whose game with Smethwick Rangers was also called off.

Fellow strugglers Dudley Sports were left fuming after their  clash with Bilston Town Community was abandoned with just 11 minutes remaining.

Sports were leading 4-3 at the time when the referee declared the conditions at Hillcrest Avenue had become too dangerous to continue playing.

The decision was particularly tough on Jack Bailey who had netted all four goals for Sports.

Bilston had replied through a brace of goals from Shaquille Reid with Omar Haughton also hitting the target.

The only other Premier Division game to survive the weather saw Hereford Lads Club share a 2-2 draw with  Wolves Casuals.

Rory Worthing put the Lads in front before Casuals hit back through Shane Thomas and Jay Holdcroft with his 22nd league goal of the term.

Ashley Lear then levelled matters with all the goals arriving in the first half.
