Tiverton Manager Looks Forward To Playing Hereford

Tiverton manager Martyn Rogers has said he is looking forward to playing Hereford on September 24th.

Tiverton are in second place in the South and West League, six points behind leaders Hereford but, as yet, undefeated.

Last Saturday they played at Paulton and left with a 5-2 victory.

"I said to the boys on Saturday that we've got three home games now,"said Rogers as reported in the Express and Echo.

"We've got one in the Devon St Luke's Bowl, then the Didcot and then the Hereford game.

"Obviously we're looking to win all three games but it would be nice to go into the game against Hereford unbeaten and just three points away from them, so it's building up really nicely for that game.

"I'm really looking forward to it – to be fair, I'm looking forward to the next three home games.

"Obviously a lot of people will be talking about the Hereford game but we've got to make sure we do the business in the next two games prior to that one. 

"I said to the players that we've got the Didcot game next Saturday and, if we're able to get three points there, then we'll be in second spot with the Hereford game looming.

"That should whet everybody's appetite in Devon to come and watch it, as it should be a cracking game.

"Hereford will still be unbeaten, as they'll be in the FA Cup next weekend and, if we don't lose to Didcot, we'll be unbeaten as well, so it will be some game."
