HEREFORD manager Pete Beadle has admitted his team was 'too predictable' at times last season and they won't be able to get away with it again.

A number of versatile players have been brought into the club and Beadle says his team will need to have more than one plan next season.

"Last season we were very predictable, but we didn't have the players to play a different formation other than 4-4-2," said Beadle.

"But we've added players who give us flexibility and different styles of play.

"Keyon Reffell can play anywhere across midfield and will bring pace and power, while Garyn Preen is a winger who I'm really excited about.

"Pablo [Haysham] can play out wide, but he prefers to be just behind the front two as a number 10.

"Jamie [Molyneux] can play out wide or down the middle, while Mike [Symons], John [Mills] and Lance [Smith] are out-and-out centre forwards.

"We're not going to change the way we play, but we would need different options.

"We were too predictable last season and teams knew what they were going to get.

"Next year, I don't think we will get away it and we would need a plan b, or even a c and a d."

Beadle has also strengthened his defence with the acquisitions of James Bowen and Jack Deaman.

And with Bowen and Jimmy Oates equally adaptable at going forward, Beadle could even contemplate using wing-backs.

"Jimmy and James both give us flexibility and they're like two wingers as well as full-backs, so we could possibly go with three at the back, although a back four still gives us a lot of benefits," said Beadle.
