Slimbridge At Edgar Street This Evening


It's back to Edgar Street this evening for Hereford FC with the visit of Slimbridge in a Southern League South and West League game, kick-off 7.45pm.

It will be the first time Slimbridge have played either Hereford FC or Hereford United. And the first time they will have played in front of such a big crowd, their home gates average just 72.

Hereford manager Peter Beadle was very disappointed with his teams performance at Tiverton on Saturday and is likely to make a couple of changes to the starting eleven.

Jamie Oates is expected to miss out after picking up a knock on Saturday and Pablo Haysham remains a doubt, although his suspension is over, because of injury. Jamie Cuss is several weeks away from full fitness.

Beadle may select Martin Horsell between the sticks after Alex Harris didn't impress at Tiverton.

If Oates is sidelined then Rob Purdie could slot in at right back with recent signing Mike McGrath making his home debut in mid-field.

Jamie Willets will be hoping for a recall. He came on as a substitute last Saturday after Oates was injured.

Slimbridge were defeated 2-0 at home by North Leigh last Saturday and are currently 13th in the table.

Tickets for the game will be available from the club today or on the gate this evening.  They can also be purchased online until 4pm. Go to https://herefordfc.cloudvenue.co.uk/
