Hereford looking to build on January form

Worcester News: Hereford United defender Dominic Collins scores the winner in the 1-0 victory over Salisbury City. Hereford United defender Dominic Collins scores the winner in the 1-0 victory over Salisbury City.

MANAGER Martin Foyle has challenged his Hereford United team to continue their fine run of form into February.

The Bulls signed off an unbeaten January with a 1-1 draw against local rivals Kidderminster Harriers at Edgar Street.

It took their points tally for the month to eight, following victories over Southport and Salisbury and the draw against Forest Green Rovers.

Combined with also beating Forest Green on December 28, Hereford are now unbeaten in five Skrill Premier matches.

Foyle now wants them to build on that momentum when they visit Woking tonight (7.45pm).

The Hereford boss said: “I’m delighted with the character and commitment of the players at the moment and the supporters are fully behind them.

"We have kept the run going in January and now we've got to look into February when we've got a hard run of four out of five games away from home but we ended January on a good note against a very good side."

Tonight's match at Woking has been rearranged following a postponement earlier in the season due to a waterlogged pitch.

It is being played on a Monday because Hayes and Yeading, who are tenants at Woking's Kingfield Stadium, are scheduled to host Bath City tomorrow night.

After the Woking match, Foyle's side have a home date against Macclesfield followed by trips to Wrexham, Luton and Dartford.

The fixture list has put pressure on Hereford's slim squad at a time when they were unable to bring players in due to a transfer embargo.

That was put in place when the club were issued with a winding-up order, something which has now been settled after they paid a bill of £36,500 to HM Revenues and Customs.

But Foyle has been impressed with the efforts of his players during a tough period on and off the pitch.

He said: "I was pleased with the discipline of the side against Kidderminster because sometimes when you play a lot of games quickly players do tire.

"We've talked through things and the good thing is the players are taking on board what I'm putting through to them.

"To compete against Kidderminster with what we're up against is absolutely fantastic."

United don't have any fresh injury concerns for the Woking match but midfielder Jamie Edge and full-back Danny Leadbitter both came off the bench against Harriers and will be pushing for a starting spot.

Relegation-threatened Woking have failed to win any of their last three matches but defeated Hereford 3-0 at Edgar Street in November's FA Trophy third qualifying round.
