Three weeks ago Stevenage lost to the Bulls

It's only three weeks since Hereford United went to Hertfordshire and defeated Stevenage.

It is interesting to look back at that game and the result for several reasons. Firstly the Bulls were without two players because of suspension and secondly because several players were unfit. Yet Hereford managed to win 1-0 with a Adam Stansfield goal.

The Bulls News report started as follows:

Hereford United collected an excellent three points against play off rivals Stevenage Borough at Broadhall Way this afternoon. The victory means three straight league wins for United and three clean sheets for 'keeper Craig Mawson. It is hoped that they will use this platform to put together a sequence, like last season, as they make a final push for the end of season play offs.

With Danny Carey-Bertram and Leroy Williams suspended, Graham Turner decided to draft in Lee Mills from the subs bench to partner Adam Stansfield in the attack. Danny Williams was back after an ankle injury, but could only make the bench as did Simon Travis, who had a late fitness test.

Hopefully by next Monday week all the squad will be fit and ready for the first game against Stevenage.

Ticket details are expected to be announced on Monday. The allocation for Hereford will be at least 1,400, which United will probably sell out quite easily. There is a small possibility that they will be allocated an extra couple of hundred seats running alongside the pitch, but this is not comfirmed.
