Taunton's Nine Game Unbeaten Run May Hit Buffers Tomorrow

Taunton Town FC's nine match unbeaten run could hit the buffers tomorrow when they meet league leaders Hereford at Edgar Street.

The Peacocks are now seventh in the Southern League South and West with up to five games in hand over teams around them.

Indeed if they had played all five games and won them they would be in second place.

So tomorrow's game is potentially first versus second. And both teams have good scoring records. Hereford are averaging 2.77 goals per game whilst Taunton are on 2.66.

For Hereford John Mills is on 21 goals with Mike Symons on 17. For Taunton Matt Wright has scored 15 and Jordan Rogers 14.

Hereford manager Peter Beadle could start with the same eleven as at Mangotsfield last Tuesday. His central defenders, Mark Preece and Clayton Fortune, probably had their best games to date which could mean that even if Ryan Green is fully fit he might not start.

Beadle will also have a decision to make about Pablo Haysham. He came off the bench for his first appearance for the Bulls since picking up a four match suspension.

It could be the toughest game Hereford have faced this season to date.

"They are all big games," said Beadle.
"We're on a little run where we've had the team that are third, we've now played the team that are fourth, we've got the team that are sixth and on a great little run coming up and then we've got Tiverton at the end of the month. 
"Everyone wants to come and beat us and it wets the appetite for a good game on Saturday."

Former Hereford player Ross Staley is expected to be in the Taunton starting eleven.

Tickets for the game can be purchased online until 10pm this evening or from the club tomorrow. 

There will be two cash turnstiles open for the Meadow End.
