4:47pm

The appearance of youth team player Cory Williams as a substitute raises a cheer.

4:27pm

Dan Walker appears as a substitute and immediately forces Hereford’s first corner on 69 minutes.
The cross ends with a weak O’Keefe header which is easily saved.

4:20pm

Then on 62 minutes, Dave Hibbert rises above the Hereford defence but heads over.

4:15pm

But the Bulls look less likely to score than the visitors who go close to adding to their lead with a volley from Moult which goes inches wide.

4:08pm

After 50 minutes, Hereford finally force a save from Kelle Roos with an Odhiambo shot from 20 yards.

4:07pm

At the start of the second half, a blunder by Graham, who is trying to shadow the ball out of play, gift s a chance to Moult.
The striker forces a flying save from Lloyd-Weston with the ball going out for a corner which Gareth Dean heads over.

3:44pm

Moult almost adds a second moments later when he curls a free-kick just wide of an upright.

3:40pm

A brainless challenge by Artus concedes a penalty on 38 minutes.
The midfielder needlessly bundles over York in the area with the ball going nowhere near the danger area.
Moult scores from the spot.

3:36pm

The game finally comes to life on 33 minutes.
A deep cross from Danny Sleath picks out Lewis Moult whose header is destined for the bottom corner of the net until Lloyd-Weston flies through the air to palm the ball away.

3:22pm

Nuneaton  force a second corner on 19 minutes and it should have brought the first goal.
Walker’s cross runs through the six-yard box to Wesley York at the far post who heads over the gaping goal.

3:15pm

Nuneaton win the first corner on 13  minutes, Adam Walker sends in the cross but Hereford clear and make good ground upfield with a good run by Micah Evans.
From the throw, Odhiambo slips a pass to Frankie Artus who shoots just wide from 15 yards.

3:09pm

After a low-key start from both sides, the first shot comes from Nuneaton’s Lewis Moult and dribbles through to Lloyd-Weston on eight minutes.

This was encouraging after last weeks debacle.
Odhiambo looked a constant threat.
Defence looked better in terms of organisation. OK Macdonald looked out fo place and a bit prone to error at left back and Graham took a little while to get into the game but apart from that solid.

The other end looked a bit more creative. Evans, Odhiambo, Artus, Rankine looked moreconfident even O keefe looked like he wasn't a rabbit in the headlights.
It's a shame Lathrope isn't our player.
The ref had the wrong idea about refereeing though. He thought he was the star of the show, was interfering all the time and got too many decisions wrong. Not just against Hereford, he gave us a few dodgy decisions too. He was very poor, as was the linesman nearer the meadow end.

Another good post, Mizza.
I agree with most of what you stated. After the first twenty-five minutes I was impresses with the way we passed the ball and started to threaten.
Like you, I thought the penalty was a poor decision, but friends on the other side near the 'offence' thought it was a penalty - such is life.
If only we could convert pressure into goals!
Instead we have to chase the game at home as we seem to give a goal away so easily.
Odihambo and Lathrope impressed me. Both players have grown in confidence in recent games.
