Hereford United strive for seven at the Imps
1:00pm Friday 16th November 2012 in Sport By Steve Carley - Midlands Sports Journalist of the Year 2013, @stevecarleyWN
THE last three games have been nothing short of remarkable for Hereford United.
As if beating higher-ranked rivals Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup was not enough, Martin Foyle’s side promptly despatched two Blue Square Bet Premier title-chasers.
They followed up the cup success by beating Luton 1-0 at Edgar Street before Luke Graham’s last-minute header secured a 2-1 victory at Wrexham last weekend.
The back-to-back wins lifted Hereford to ninth in the table, six points shy of the play-offs, ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Lincoln City (3pm).
Defender Graham believes Hereford are currently a match for anyone and a result at Sincil Bank would stretch United’s unbeaten record to seven matches in all competitions.
The Hereford captain said: “It was a fantastic win (against Wrexham) and one we thoroughly deserved.
“At the moment, with the way the lads are playing, we feel we can play against anybody.
“There is so much more to come, especially with the young players in the side.
“There is so much quality with the young lads.
“We just need that consistency and now, over the last eight games, it’s happening. With a few experienced boys in there as well, it’s starting to click.”
Hereford can call on striker Kyle Perry, who extended his loan from Nuneaton Town for another month, but are short in defence following Chris Todd’s return to Forest Green Rovers.
Right-back Andy Gallinagh should return after a stomach upset, meaning Graham can drop back into the middle.
