In the Conference, it's honours even between the local rivals. The Bulls did the double over Kidderminster in our first Conference season including a 4-1 win at Aggborough thanks to a Richard Leadbeater hat-trick, but Kiddy repaid it with a double of their own the following season. Two one-all draws in Kiddy's promotion season left the Conference results level.
It's the epic Welsh Cup battles of the mid 80's that brought this local rivalry to the fore. Kidderminster edged past the Bulls into the final in 85/86 - a 4-1 win at Aggborough put Kiddy firmly in the driving seat, but the Bulls fought back hard to get a 3-1 win at Edgar Street. The following season, it was a 3-0 defeat at Aggborough that ended the Bulls run in the Third Round, and two years later Kiddy again made the final with the only goal over the two legs. When the Bulls finally beat Kiddy, in 89/90 with a 3-1 away win, it led to the Bulls only triumph in the competition.
Hereford are lacking firepower at the moment with just 18 goals in 17 senior games this season leaves the Bulls ninth in the table, four points above Kidderminster. Danny Carey-Bertram leads the attack with five goals, and Guy Ipoua has three. The Bulls do, however, boast the meanest defence in the Conference, with just 10 goals conceded in 14 games.
Kidderminster drastically cut their budget in the summer following relegation, and it's been showing on the pitch. They've scored one less that the Bulls in the league, but have managed to be fairly tight at the back - four of the last five matches resulting in 1-0 scorelines one way or the other. Iyseden Christie and Taiwo Atieno lead the attack with five and four goals respectively.
