Foyle is hopeful of home success
HEREFORD United go in search of their fifth home win of the season tomorrow when Stockport County visit Edgar Street (3pm).
Martin Foyle’s men have beaten Macclesfield, Ebbsfleet, Woking and Cambridge at HQ in the Blue Sqaure Bet Premier so far this term and are keen to add the Hatters to that list.
The Bulls’ defeats on home soil have come against Grimsby and Forest Green Rovers and Foyle is expecting those two sides to be among the promotion chasers.
But he is looking for his players to step up to the plate against a Stockport side who have drawn four of their six games on the road.
Foyle said: “We are looking to take the game to them. They have improved a lot since last year and it’s going to be a very tight game. Hopefully, we can get the win.
“You are always disappointed with a defeat at home but they have been against teams that will be in the play-offs so there’s no shame in that.
“It’s against teams like Stockport and Braintree (on October 13) who we have to beat.”
The Bulls’ boss is also looking for his team to become less erratic having not gone two games without losing since August.
“Consistency is something that you don’t get with young players so we know we will be up and down this year but that’s what we are aiming for,” he added.
Hereford are still feeling the affects of a virus that has struck a few of the players, including striker Ryan Bowman, who missed last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Mansfield Town.
The United manager said: “We have had a few that have been ill and we have a few injuries so we will take stock.”
