Hereford United have chance to repeat TV victory at Forest Green
9:01am Thursday 9th January 2014 in Sport
HEREFORD United will be looking for a quick-fire televised double when they visit Forest Green Rovers for a Skrill Premier clash tonight (Thursday).
The Bulls' last outing brought a 1-0 success against the Gloucestershire side at Edgar Street on December 28.
Since then, United have seen their visit from Kidderminster and trip to Woking postponed because of the poor weather.
"I'm devastated for the board of directors for the loss of the Kidderminster game," said Martin Foyle.
"That has lost us around £10,000 and we are not in a position to lose that sort of money.
"Sometimes you feel that everything is against you but we just have to dust ourselves down and carry on."
The Kidderminster postponement meant that United failed to hit their £35,000 fundraising target to get through December.
More than £20,000 was raised but, while the players have been paid, non-playing staff received just 50% of their wages due to the shortfall.
United now also expect to be the subject of a winding-up order due to non-payment of tax.
But the imminent signing of new ground leases and the consequent agreement of a contract with a telecoms company is hoped to bring a cash influx.
Foyle has lost the services of loan midfielder Damon Lathrope, who has been recalled by Torquay United.
"It's a blow because he got us ticking," said Foyle.
"But hopefully there will be someone else coming through the door."
