Polymac Packaging League Cup Preview

This from Midland League press officer Gary Hazelhurst:

Hereford will meet Walsall Wood in the final of the Polymac Packaging League Cup on May 10th at Solihull Moors FC. Hereford took a 1-0 lead into the second leg against Stourport Swifts and eventually progressed 4-0 on aggregate. The game was level until the 59th minute but two quick goals from Dylan Bonella and Mustapha Bundu sent Hereford through. 

Walsall Wood and Lye Town could not be separated on the night with both sides having chances but failing to convert in a 0-0 draw. That result meant that Walsall Wood progressed on the away goals rule after a 2-2 draw at Stourbridge Road.

Hereford are attempting to lift trophy number three with Walsall Wood standing in their way.  While Hereford have stormed to the Premier Division title, Wood have had another competitive season finishing in 7th position.  Hereford edged the recent league meeting between the sides at Edgar Street and an excellent game is in prospect.
