Foyle: More to come from Bulls
MANAGER Martin Foyle says his new-look Hereford United side will not let their good run of form get the better of them.
The Bulls have made a solid start to Blue Square Bet Premier life, following up an opening-day 2-1 victory against Macclesfield with a 2-2 draw at Tamworth.
Coming off the back of an unbeaten pre-season, the positive start has gone down well at Edgar Street.
Next up is a trip to Alfreton Town tomorrow (3pm) as Hereford seek to put themselves among the early pace-setters.
Foyle, though, has warned his players to be ready for another physical encounter after Marlon Jackson was sent off for retaliation at The Lamb on Tuesday.
The United boss said: “We are pleased but probably a little disappointed after the sending-off on Tuesday because I felt we had a foothold in the game. But we remain unbeaten which is good.
“A lot of the boys don’t know this level and we have told them Tamworth and Alfreton will be the two most physical games this season. We know what’s coming and have to make sure the players are ready for that.
“There’s a lot of improvement to come, there’s no question about that, and set-pieces need to be better.
“We are a work in progress but are not getting carried away because we know how tough this league is.”
Jackson begins a three-match ban at the Impact Arena after his red card against Tamworth, so loan striker Tom Nichols could come in, while Ryan Bowman might make the bench following a thigh problem if no new forwards join.
However, there are doubts over central defensive duo Michael Townsend and captain Luke Graham after they suffered knee and shoulder injuries respectively against Tamworth.
Stefan Stam and Will Evans are the likely options to play in their absence.
