The Opposition View - Hereford

The Opposition View - Hereford


Following yesterday's 1-0 defeat to Hereford United in the FA Cup third-round, here are some views on the game from the Bulls' manager Jamie Pitman and a few of their fans.


"I'm very pleased with the result and I'm very pleased with the clean sheet," Pitman told FATV following the game.

"The lads have been working very hard over the course of the last few weeks to defend better and they've done that tonight."

"We changed the system to a 4-4-2 and tried to make it difficult for them as we knew they were going to be a very good unit, pass it well and try to get at us. But we made sure we kept a solid eight."

"It was a very tough game tonight. We started very well and could have had a few goals early on, but they've created a few chances, we've rode our luck for a bit but overall it was a very good performance."

On Mathieu Manset's winning goal Pitman said: "The set-piece has gone in around the back, it was headed back across and we've reacted well to it. Financially for the club this is massive, and for the players winning is a habit. Whether that's in The FA Cup or in the League we need to keep doing that."

"It's great to be involved in The FA Cup, we have a great tie up at Hillsborough now and hopefully we can go there with some confidence and make it difficult for them."


The Bulls' fans were amazed to have kept a clean sheet and proud of their team's battling performance.

'We've only gone and kept a clean sheet! And considering we took the lead before half time, we did it relatively comfortably. I honestly thought we stood no chance tonight with our awful defensive form, well done lads!'

'Well that was an excellent night. Neatly taken goal from a well executed corner routine, battled for every ball in midfield and a clean sheet as well.'

'Brilliant spirit out there, closing down all over the park until a few legs got tired in the last ten minutes. Well deserved, proud of the lads tonight.'

'What a fantastic night! We fully deserved that win. Played the better football from the very start and were rarely put under pressure. The only half-chance of note that I remember was when Ainsworth cracked the bar with a header. Great support and a great battling but classy performance. No-one put a foot wrong and the whole team were first class. Manset is a real prospect!'

'Prior to the goal, they'd looked well on top, and could/should have been 2 or 3 to the good. But after the well worked goal we looked a lot more assured, and I don't really remember them significantly troubling us.'

'I thought their threat was over once Ainsworth went off.'


Thankyou Archie Phillips wrote:
'Perfect example of a good away game for me - grab a goal and then hang on (albeit largely comfortably). Only disappointment was the low overall crowd, good job the excellent Whites were there in force, shame on the home fans! Having lived near Wycombe since they were Conference, I always thought they'd have far better support than that in an essentially wealthy area, maybe they've all defected to Wasps or even worse, MK Dons? Ah well, at least it made my access better than usual.'
