A final league position of eighth or above means qualification for the potentially lucrative LDV Vans Trophy, which involves teams from Divisions Two and Three.
The Bulls go to Yeovil Town, who are third in the Conference, on Saturday in hope of repeating last season's performance - Hereford's 3-2 win ensured Yeovil stayed in the non-league ranks for at least another twelve months.
Robinson told the Hereford Times: "It's nice to be in a position to affect the promotion race and we hope to be able to do to Yeovil what we did to Boston. But it will be a tough game because Yeovil are on a rich vein of form and have a very strong squad."
Yeovil's Huish Park is liable to waterlogging and so keep an eye on HU-FC.co.uk for details of a potential postponement on the day.
Hereford go into the match with doubts over coach Phil Robinson, defender Matt Clarke and midfielder Scott Goodwin, who have calf, hamstring and abdomen problems respectively. However, Steve Piearce will return to the squad after coming through last night's reserve match successfully.
Meanwhile, former Hereford United boss Colin Addison will bring his current side, Swansea City, to Edgar Street in order to play for the Herefordshire FA Senior Invitation Cup Final. No date has ben set yet, but it is hoped that the match will be played before the end of the season.
The United team included an number of first teamers including Steve Piearce (back from injury), Rob Elmes, John Snape (captain), Jimmy Quiggin, Lee Evans, Daniel Davidson and Jon Hill.
John Snape led the team out and the game got underway. Immediately United were on the attack, and Town had little in reply. In the opening minutes Snape and Quiggin worked tirelessly whilst Jon Hill mopped up at the back. A number of chances went begging, including several headers from Daniel Davidson, but the best of the chances in the first half fell to Quiggin who received the ball to the right of the Blackfriars End goal but could only fire it across the face. Another chance later on hit the crossbar after a header from Davidson, setup by a wonderful Quiggin cross. A frustrating half ended with a Hednesford shot going just wide of the left hand post after good work in the midfield. Town's goalkeeper commanded his area for the whole half and it was clear we needed something special to beat him.
Four mins into the second half Quiggin broke forward, and from about twenty yards out fired a low shot passed the desparing keeper, a goal worthy of a first team place. This spark ignited the rest of the team, and the second goal was a bizaare one. Steve Piearce, who had been playing well tried to cross, his shot bounced off a defender, Piearce tried again the cross, it bounced off the defender and looped over the goalkeeper. From the right, it hit the top of the post and bounced into the opposite corner of the net.
The third was a fantastic goal, although unfortunatley no-one seems to know the name of the man that scored it! Running onto a long throughball from Jon Hill, the 'player' brought it down turned past the goalkeeper and calmly and confidently floated the ball over a waiting defender. The scorer had come on for John Snape and played well for the fifteen minutes or so, and his goal was netted five minutes from time. The rest of the half saw continued flowing attacking football from United. Only in the last few minutes did Hednesford pose any real threat, once going close. Other chances in the second half fell to Davidson, who hit the post and squandered another.
So an entertaining game, Jimmy Quiggin was man of the match for his tireless work. His pass and move plan working very well with Snape and Elmes played in the centre of defence for most of the game. Daniel Davidson was hopeless, but Quiggin's performance deserves a first team place at Yeovil. Lee Evans had a quiet but confident game in the Hereford goal.
Parry has been linked with Leicester City and Celtic in recent weeks but has just signed a new contract with Hereford. Any move could be financially lucrative for the club, and help secure their future.
Herefordshire Council leader Terry James has also discussing the future of the club with the liaison committee. A statement about the proposed redevelopment of Edgar Street is expected to be released sometime next month.
The fundraising efforts of the supporters have kept the club alive over the past few years, and entertainer Danny Lee is set to help Hereford United again by recording a new song called 'The Giantkillers'. All proceeds will go to the club but he wants supporters to gather in the Meadow End next Tuesday at 7.15pm, before the Telford United game, to help him with the recording.
The events followed clashes between rival groups in the city centre, which caused much damage.
HUISA chairman Kevin Wargen said: "Obviously the rules are that people should not go on the pitch." He said he could not condone such behaviour.
