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 the second time this season they fell behind to a goal within a minute.
Yet again a set piece proved their undoing when a Banbury corner taken by Ben Whitehead was headed in by Tom Fishwick.
Nevertheless the Bulls were back on terms within minutes when Sam Bobes-Gilroy broke through evading a couple of challenges, before skillfully placing the ball past Banbury keeper Bedwell.
In a frantic start, straight from the kick off Tappin should have scored from eight yards but again the outstanding Luke Williams tipped his shot over the bar.
From here it was end to end with both sides creating and missing chances, Mo Diop should have scored with a cross shot, and Obi Onyeike having been put through by Dan Sullivan was unfortunate to see his effort rebound to safety off a post.

On the half hour another screamer from Onyeike was just tipped onto the crossbar and over by Bedwell when it looked a certainty for the top corner.

The Bulls were now showing themselves to be the much stronger side and it was no surprise when Josh Hawker receiving the ball from Mo Diop cut inside from the right and lashed the ball into the far corner of the net to put the Bulls into the lead.

The remainder of the half saw Hereford take total control although they could not add to their score before the break.

HT: Banbury 1 Hereford 2.

The Bulls started the second half brightly and when the industrious Steve Vetier cut into the penalty area on 58 minutes and planted the ball in the far corner to make it 3-1 to the Bulls the contest was well and truly over.

A number of chances fell to both sides as the match wore on but the Bulls had to wait until stoppage time to complete the rout.
Bilal Yafai got the fourth in the 92nd minute, and the outstanding Onyeike got the goal he richly deserved with almost the last kick of the game to make it five.

FT: Banbury 1 Hereford 5.

Scorers; Fishwick 1-0, Bobes-Gilroy 1-1, Hawker 1-2, Vetier 1-3, Yafai 1-4, Onyeike 1-5.

So Mr Negative did we all dream the result away to top of the table Poole Town?

Spot on bopster, five away games on the trot including Totton this weekend. Poole, Slough, St Neot's, and Banbury, in the league aren't exactly an easy run of games. Totton should be another hard game. There are those though that have such a festering hatred of Hereford United they wouldn't congatulate this team if they beat Liverpool. Of course, if the wreckers had their way, there wouldn't be a side playing this season.

I think we can all agree that the wrecker is David Keyte who through bad decisions got the club into huge debt and then sold it down the river.
