4:45pm

4:45pm

Leadbitter produces another fine run into the area but tries to shoot when a cross or pass might have been better.
Then Walker shows how not to do it, going past his man and shanking the cross horribly out of play.

4:36pm

The Wrexham attack has been little seen but a Hunt shot deflects behind for a corner off Graham on 76 minutes. Carrington’s cross is headed clear.

4:34pm

Hereford win a corner on 74 minutes when Bush gets forward. Walker’s cross is dreadful and goes straight out at the other side.

4:27pm

Collins gets his head to an Artus free-kick but the ball loops across the six-yard box and wide.

4:26pm

Smith comes on to replace Sharp, a move not greeted with much enthusiasm by the Bulls fans.

4:19pm

Hereford manage a shot on the hour when James sends in a skidding shot but the ball presents no threat to Coughlin.

4:16pm

Hereford have much the better of play for a phase without forcing a shot from Andy Coughlin.
And Keates, at the other end, has Lloyd-Weston scrambling across his goal as a free-kick drifts inches wide.

4:10pm

Walker wastes a good opening when he cuts inside and shoots high over after a neat build-up.

4:09pm

Leadbitter moves further forward with Purdie slotting in at right-back.

4:00pm

Dan Lloyd-Weston is brought on to replace Evans at half-time.

3:45pm

Ogleby has a chance to make it three before the break when Hunt drags the ball back but drills the ball the wrong side of an upright.

3:42pm

But he can’t keep the ball out in the 42nd minute when Carrington’s shot is side-footed in by Ogleby.

3:40pm

Another blinding save by Evans, when Carrington gets on the end of a Hunt cross, saves another certain goal.
Evans is holding his shoulder after some earlier treatment but he has pulled off three superb saves to keep United in the game.

3:33pm

A Bush shot from an Artus free-kick wins the first Hereford corner.
Collins meets Walker’s cross but the ball flies over.

3:32pm

Another brilliant save by Evans, this time from Keates, keeps the Bulls in the game.

3:28pm

Evans comes to the Bulls rescue with a neat save at the expense of a corner when Carrington gets the better of Collins.

3:27pm

There's not much in the way of quality until Leadbitter embarks on a mazy run which takes him into the penalty area on the left.
Purdie gets in a flicked shot from his cross but the ball is cleared.

3:14pm

Sharp has the ball in the net three minutes later for Hereford but is ruled offside.

3:10pm

After 10 minutes, Wrexham take the lead.
A cross comes in from the right and Hunt nips in to get the touch and fires into the top corner.

3:09pm

3:08pm

The first five minutes are remarkably scrappy, even by recent standards with the ball pinging from end to end and little purpose being shown.

2:41pm

WITH Rod McDonald reporting sick, Bulls boss Martin Foyle makes two changes for the visit of old rivals Wrexham.
Chris Bush returns at left-back with Kingsley James recalled to take the place of Sam Smith.
It appears that Dan Walker will play in attack with Chris Sharp, although Sharp may play as a lone striker with five across the midfield and Walker and Jon Brown, or Rob Purdie, as the flank-men, pushing up.
Former Bulls loanee Joe Anyinsah starts for Wrexham.
Hereford:4-4-2: Evans; Leadbitter, Graham, Collins, Bush; Brown, James, Artus, Purdie; Sharp, Walker. Subs not used: Lloyd-Weston, Edge, Bowen, Williams, Smith
