Promising and worrying signs so far says Bulls boss
10:00am Saturday 29th September 2012 in Sport
IT has been a topsy-turvy start to life back in non-league for Hereford United but manager Martin Foyle is satisfied with the progress.
With 11 games of the 46 already played in the Blue Square Bet Premier, the Bulls occupy 11th place with 16 points.
A bright start, featuring three wins from their first four matches, has given way to a period of inconsistency, which included back-to-back hammerings at part-time Hyde and Dartford.
Hereford returned to winning ways in the 4-2 defeat of Cambridge United last Saturday before losing 2-1 at home to high-flying Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday.
Foyle knew returning to the Football League at the first attempt was a tall order, especially given the lack of money available to strengthen a predominantly youthful squad.
However, a win at Mansfield Town today (3pm) could be enough to lift the Edgar Street outfit back into the top 10.
Foyle said: “There are promising but also worrying signs. It could be better but some of the losses and some of the wins could have been draws. I think it’s OK.
“We are where I thought we would be in terms of points. We have got to wheel and deal and make the club stronger but finances are dictating.”
