The Opposition View - Hereford
In the wake of yesterday's 0-0 draw at Hereford, here are some views on the game from Bulls' boss Jamie Pitman and a few of their fans.
Pitman was quick to praise Wycombe keeper Nikki Bull who made a string of superb saves to preserve a point for the visitors.
"We had the better of the chances and their keeper has pulled off two not just very good but world-class saves," he said.
"The shot from Ryan Green was at a nice height for the keeper but it looked as if it was flying in and it was a great save. You have to give him credit for that, it was a tremendous instinctive save."
"We played very well and worked very hard again. Full credit to the players, they have put in a great shift against a very good Wycombe side who are second in the league and going very well. On another day we might just have nicked the win but we have taken another point and it's another point on the board."
If the reaction of the Hereford fans is anything to go by, they must have seen some awful stuff at Edgar Street this season.
The following extracts are taken from Bulls Banter.
'Our best home performance of the season by a long way.'
'We were treated to some classy football from both sides. I'm amazed there aren't more on here appreciating the football we witnessed last night from both sides. Or did I see the match through rose tinted glasses.'
'One of the better nil nil's I've seen.'
'Very even match, Wycombe didn't look like a team 2nd in the table. All in all I think a draw was a fair result; we had the majority of the chances but they missed a couple of very good ones'
'Decent game tonight. We worked their keeper more than they worked ours despite a couple of determined efforts to self-destuct.'
'Decent enough point tonight, we seem to have found the formula for stopping teams without threatening much ourselves.'
'We would have won but for a few good saves from the Wycombe keeper.'
'An ultra defensive formation, only one man up front and tactics designed to invite the other team to attack while we just sit back. No wonder we've only scored one goal in our last five games. This must be the least entertaining football we've ever played.'
