Hereford United want three-in-a-row landmark
HEREFORD United return to Edgar Street tomorrow chasing a landmark in their Blue Square Bet Premier campaign.
The Bulls are yet to win three succesive league matches this term but victory against Nuneaton Town (3pm) would make that statistic a reality.
United are back in front of their own fans after a 3-2 win at Stockport County on Tuesday and a 3-1 triumph at Cambridge United last Saturday lifted them to seventh in the table.
After beating Lincoln City 3-2 in their last home match two weeks ago, Martin Foyle’s side are full of confidence ahead of Nuneaton’s visit.
Foyle said: “On the back of two good away wins, hopefully we can force the issue against Nuneaton.
“The confidence has been good and we have played some fine football but unfortunately we have got a knack of conceding poor goals.
“We know we are in for a hard match but if we can get three points at home it would be nice.”
While Hereford have won three of their last four games, Nuneaton have defied their position in the relegation zone.
They beat Alfreton 1-0 and Barrow 2-1 before running title-chasing Kidderminster Harriers close in a 1-0 defeat at Liberty Way last Tuesday.
Foyle added: “They are a decent side who should have beaten Kidderminster in mid-week and won their previous two before that.”
Hereford striker Ryan Bowman will look to add to his tally of three goals in his last two games which included a brace of penalties at Stockport.
Forward Marlon Jackson could also push for a start having been introduced as a substitute in the last seven fixtures.
Centre-half Michael Townsend (back) and midfielder Simon Clist (hip) are United’s only two injury concerns.
Townsend has not played in 2013, while Clist last featured in the 1-1 draw against Telford on January 8.
