|Rob Purdie Captained Hereford This Afternoon|
The 'Beast' then sent a dipping half-volley narrowly over the crossbar from outside the box, but it was a case of third time lucky, as he netted the opener. Mills evaded the challenge of his marker to pass to Plummer on the right-wing; the former Bristol City youngster created room to fizz a cross towards Symons, who diverted it into the net from close-range.
Hereford upped their game in the second-half, as the home team tired, but Slimbridge had a couple of early opportunities to get themselves level. A lofted cross from the right was headed wide from 11 in a good position in the centre of the area, whilst minutes later, they came even closer; a free-kick from inside the Slimbridge half from the left was sent diagonally to number 10, and his dipping effort beat Alex Harris but struck the crossbar.
A third goal followed soon after, when some neat passing eventually led to Williams finding room inside the box and slotting a pass back to Plummer, who steadied himself before firing low and hard with his left-foot to beat the 'keeper at his near-post.
A flurry of subs were made by both teams as the game progressed. Jamie Molyneux, Jake Sinclair and Jamie Edge replaced Haysham, Plummer and Mills respectively. Hereford were in control but failed to convert this dominance into chances created, and it was Slimbridge who had the final chance of the game, after good work by their sub number 15, cutting back for number 10, but his powerful shot was straight at Harris.
