Wimborne Reaction To Draw At Edgar Street


Wimborne coach Shane Traynor was interviewed by their match reporter after yesterday's 2-2 draw at Edgar Street.

Hereford scored first within a minute of kick-off.

"I was a little bit annoyed about that as we had been working on it during the week," said Traynor.

"We knew what their threat was going to be and we didn't deal with it straight away. So early goal."

Tobias Holmes made it 1-1 on 16 minutes. 'Luke got the ball, he had a little dribble, he put it through to Toby and then a classic Holmes finish'

"Typical Holmes and you know what Luke can do when he gets on the ball. He does make things happen for Toby because they've got a great understanding. And he finished it off really well."

The interviewed remarked about the 'lovely big pitch' saying it looked 'really good' which suited Wimborne.

"We knew about the pitch  and that it would suit the way we play and I thought we put on a very good performance."

After 12 minutes in the second half Hereford were awarded a 'soft' penalty which involved 'the big lad Symons and Stokoe, the ref judged it was a penalty and John Mills put it away.'

34 minutes into the second half a penalty for Wimborne which Toby Holmes converted with a 'little bit of composure'. 

'The corner came over, there was a hand-ball, we had a penalty and up steps Toby Holmes and dinked it over the keeper'.

"No surprise with Toby because he's that sort of player that he'll have something up his sleeve or a little bit of surprise and he comes up with a clever penalty like that. And under pressure, 2-1 down, to do that takes a lot of character."

The referee added six minutes of time.

"There were a few incidents in the game but it did go on a little bit but we've dug in and a great team performance again."

Hereford are a good side and 'I think we're only the third team to go away with a point.'

"Hereford are a well drilled side and you can see that. We had a plan and we stuck by it and we got what we deserved."
