The Linnets face a midweek trip to Herefordshire following this FA Trophy Walks stalemate on Saturday.
Town began brightly with Ross Barrows heading over from a Sonny Carey centre and Jordan Richards then firing over from 25 yards with Hereford on the back foot. On a rare foray forward the visitors Reece Styche fired well clear of Alex Street’s bar following a mazy run. Adam Marriott then collected a stray Bulls pass and played in Carey who took the ball on before sending a driven shot inches wide of Brandon Hall’s goal.
The second half continued in similar fashion with Ryan Jarvis going close with a flick on following a corner and Rory McAuley forcing Hall into a fine save following a header. Nathan fox set up Carey whose bobbling shot went wide and substitute Chris Henderson was inches wide with a great chance from close in. Despite all of Town’s pressure Hereford’s Peter Vincenti could – and probably should – have won it in the last minute of normal time but fired over the bar from 2 yards following a Rowan Liburd centre. There was still time for Richards to test Hall again but the keeper clung onto the ball ensuring both teams have to do it all again this Tuesday evening at Edgar Street.
