It's Bideford At Home Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Bideford are the visitors to Edgar Street and whilst Westfields have an FA Cup Tie just 500 or so yards away, Hereford FC are expecting a decent attendance for the game.

Already the club has said that sections B and C in the main stand are sold out. Tickets remain available for all other areas.

Supporters driving to the game should note that there is likely to be less parking around Edgar Street. However Herefordshire Council has said they will open the Merton Meadow overflow area.

As for the game itself Ryan Green will be available for selection for a place in the starting eleven after missing Tuesday's game because of a one match suspension.

Who manager Peter Beadle will select as the back four remains to be seen but it's thought Jimmy Oates will revert to his usual position of right back and Joel Edwards return to left back. Last Tuesday the two of them played as central defenders.

Green is expected to be at the heart of defence probably along with new signing Mark Preece given Chris Parry remains side-lined with an ankle injury.

As for the midfield Calvin Dinsley is likely to play given it's the last game of his loan from Gloucester. Recently he has partnered Michael McGrath and this will probably continue tomorrow. Both Jamie Edge and Rob Purdie are expected to be on the bench and challenging for a place. Should Beadle be unable to keep Dinsley for a further month, he will need to to ensure both Edge and Purdie are match fit. Whilst the versatile Purdie filled in at left back last Tuesday, Edge hasn't featured for a couple of games.

Tristan Plummer may keep his place on the right wing but Jamie Molyneux will be pushing for a start either in that position or perhaps even up-front. 

Both John Mills and Mike Symons have started every League game for the last two months.  However Molyneux is also a centre forward and Beadle could consider giving him an opportunity in place of either Mills or Symons.

That leaves Pablo Haysham who, especially after his Man of the Match award last Tuesday, will keep his place on the left wing. And Martin Horsell in goal as Alex Harris is set to play for Lydney tomorrow. 

Meanwhile the Royal British Legion will be at tomorrow's game to sell Poppies. They will also have a bucket collection.

Standard Bearers will lead the teams onto the pitch.

Finally the club will auction the shirts worn by players during the game for the Poppy Appeal.
