Pitman: Hereford must 'prosper'

The Hereford United caretaker boss Jamie Pitman is relishing his latest Edgar Street challenge.

Having guided the Bulls to an unbeaten run of four games, including excellent back-to-back away wins, Pitman is urging his side on towards a home victory.

Pitman, 34, wants that victory to come tonight against Aldershot Town, ahead of an important FA Cup weekend.

Speaking to he said: 'When I was at the club as a player Edgar Street was a hard place for teams to come, and we've got to make it the same again.

'The sooner we can get that first home win the better, and if we can do that against a good side like Aldershot it will boost confidence as well as our points tally.'

The former Swindon, Hereford and Yeovil midfielder admitted he was initially surprised to be installed in the Bulls hot-seat, but now looks to kick on.

'When the chance to manage the club came along I couldn't turn it down.

'I had little management experience, but I had good knowledge of the game having been a player at a decent level for a long time and then having valuable time on the management side with Jimmy [Harvey] at Forest Green and helping Graham [Turner] out at the back end of last season, when we had a good run-in to keep ourselves in the league.

'Before the start of this season I was telling people that we would be a decent side, but for whatever reason we lost our way a bit.

'Now we've picked up and things have been going really well, but I know that situation can change very quickly so it's that old cliché, 'one game at a time,' that I'll be sticking to.

'Whether I get the job on a permanent basis remains to be seen, it will be a case of whatever's best for the football club.

'I was here as a player when we got relegated from the league and I was here again when we got promoted back - and my only concern now is for Hereford United to prosper as a Football League club.'

Bulls finally show true form.

Hereford United finally put a score together that reflects the ability of the side.
On numerous occasions this season they should have despatched teams by scores like this often before half time.

Jon Taylor made a significant change to the team last night moving Obi Onyeike up the park, dropping Javia Roberts into full back, and brought Louis Cutajar in at left back following an extended period out with an ankle injury.

Things however could not have started worse for them as for

If Jon Taylor had hair at the start of last night's game he would certainly have pulled the lot out during the game. The same team that held Poole to a goalless draw only 3 days earlier produced a pe

Luke Williams the hero for stubborn Bulls.

Herefords young guns came away with a well deserved point from this game and could well have snatched a win at the death.
Facing up to the League's form team the Bulls kicked off in a kit borrowed from their hosts.

Poole's Mark Jermyn was first to threaten with a cross come shot almost dipping under the crossbar.
Next up Burbridge was fouled on the edge of the penalty area which danger man Steve Devlin saw flicked away for a corner. Whisken then headed a Burbridge cross wide as

Pacey Bulls stun Cambridge.

Herefords young guns reduced the Cambridge City side to chasing shadows for much of this encounter.
With Steve Vetier back in tandem with Javia Roberts operating on the flanks, and Delroy Gordon back in central defence, we saw a similar display to the one that reduced Biggleswade to tatters in the last home win.

Sam Bobes-Gilroy was serving a suspension so Josh Hawker and Josh Oyibo occupied central midfield, with Bilal Yafai operating in a floating role across the front of them.
