Bulls need Your Support This Afternoon

Hereford United are hopeful that a good crowd will get behind them and help secure a win against Bradford City at Edgar Street this afternoon.

Three points will secure their place in League Two next season, provided one of the three teams below drops a point, whereas just a point could mean that, depending on results elsewhere, the Bulls may need points from their final game of the season next Saturday at Macclesfield to stave off the threat of relegation.

Chairman David Keyte has taken the unusual step of reducing prices for those supporters who prefer to stand, either in the Meadow End or the Len Weston terrace. Admission this afternoon will be £10 for adults, £5 for seniors, and just £1 for those under 16. Seated prices remain unchanged.

Keyte's aim is to get as many supporters to the game as possible in the hope that the extra noise they can make will spur on his team to victory.

Manager Jamie Pitman backed the decision.

"The club have reduced prices to hopefully get some more people in," Pitman told the Worcester News.

"It’s our last home game so we hope everybody comes out to support us and help us over the finishing line."

Visitors Bradford City are almost certainly safe from relegation. However no doubt they will be mindful that a point will ensure League Two football for them next season.

Meanwhile Torquay moved back into the play-offs after drawing with leaders Chesterfield last night. Their point will put extra pressure on Accrington, also in the play-off places, to take all three points from their game against Barnet this afternoon.
