And if that is not bad enough, they have scored just 20 goals in 22 games.
But perhaps the most telling stat is the inability of the strikers to score, particularily since Gary Peters was appointed director of football.
Whilst in his 12 games with the club 16 goals have been scored, just 5 have come from strikers. Meanwhile young winger Tom Barkhuizen (pictured) has scored 6 in that time, a great return from the Blackpool loanee.
As yet nothing has been confirmed about the future of Barkhuizen at Edgar Street. His current loan spell comes to after the Burton match on January 2nd. Blackpool will be well aware how he is doing and hopefully will extend the loan until the end of the season. There is simply no-one currently at Hereford who could replace him in his role.
Meanwhile Richard Peniket, the young striker on loan from Fulham, wasn't on the bench this afternoon despite warming the bench last Saturday at Plymouth. Sean Canham took his place.
Surely Peniket must be given a chance, sooner as opposed to later, to see what he can do. Neither Delroy Facey, Nathan Elder, nor Yoann Arquin appear to be a real threat in front of goal. To date Facey has scored 2 goals this season, Arquin has scored 3 goals to date and Elder, who often has had to be a lone striker, has also scored just 2 goals. That's not a good enough return.
