Foyle targets 10 more points for Hereford safety
1:16pm Friday 28th February 2014 in Sport
MANAGER Martin Foyle believes 10 more points will be enough to keep Hereford United in the Skrill Premier.
Having enjoyed an unbeaten January, for which Foyle was named manager of the month, the Bulls could not have endured a worse February by contrast.
United have lost all four of their matches this month, conceding 14 goals in the process and scoring just once.
It has left them hovering just six points above the relegation zone ahead of tomorrow's match against Wrexham at Edgar Street (3pm).
Foyle reckons a total of 49 points would be enough to ensure their survival, meaning Hereford would need to glean 10 points from their final 13 fixtures.
“I think 10 points will be enough but it’s about the next three points and that’s my worry at the moment," he said.
Wrexham arrive at Edgar Street with Billy Barr in temporary charge after Andy Morrell quit the Dragons this week.
They will also be smarting from a 5-0 thrashing at runaway league leaders Luton Town on Tuesday.
Foyle blamed tiredness for his side's 2-1 defeat against Macclesfield Town in midweek and does not have many options to shake things up.
He said: “I can make one or two changes to try to freshen it up for a very tough game against Wrexham.
“But it’s hard, I have never been at the bottom before and this is really testing me both mentally and physically.”
Midfielder Kingsley James, who has been hampered by a hamstring injury, was a second-half substitute against the Silkmen and could earn a recall.
Left-back Chris Bush will also be hoping to force his way back into the side after replacing Rod McDonald six minutes into the second period on Tuesday.
