Hereford Will Have To Have An Off Day Said Yate Manager


Yate FC manager Paul Britton has said that Hereford will have to have an off day is his side to get anything from Saturday's game against the League leaders.

"We are massive underdogs," Britton told the Gazette.

"They are a terrific side and we played them before Christmas and they beat us 4-1. In the first twenty minutes of that match, we were comfortably worse as they were rampant.

"It is part of the learning curve to be involved in these sort of games and we have to take any positives we can from this game that will help us move forward."

Britton should have his strongest line up to face the Bulls.

"There is no doubt that everyone who have had niggles and slight injuries will be declaring themselves fit for this game!

"Although we lost 4-1 at their place, defensively, they were a little bit shaky at times but, regards going forward, every side has played them once now and I think, player for player, they are the best team in the league.

"For us, our goals per game is not an issue, it is about goals through the back four. Hereford are a good side and Peter Beadle (manager) has put together a strong squad. They will be champions (of the league), no doubt about that.

"So they have to have an off day although we know what format they will play."
