York Fail To Defeat Reformed Hereford For The Fifth Time

York manager Steve Watson felt his side had enough chances to win last night's game about Hereford. It was the fifth time since the Bulls reformed that York have failed to defeat them.

To add to Watson's misery, it was York's first game under the lights at their new stadium. 

"Don't get me wrong, I'm not sitting here thinking we've played fantastically tonight, but I am sitting here thinking we've had enough chances to win the game," said Watson in his post match interview.

"That's twice we've played Hereford in a night-time game. The first time we were top of the league, and that was a bitter pill to swallow because it was a heavy defeat.

"That's stopped a little bit of momentum. We've got to get going again." 

Watson questioned the confidence of his players after Hereford's Owen-Evans had rounded their keeper and slotted the ball into the net.

"The goal against almost sums up the lack of confidence and belief because you end up back at the keeper three passes after having a throw-in in their half. "
