Assistant manager Steve Jenkins believes Hereford United can win their last two matches.
"We have two huge matches coming up - they are bigger than two cup finals."
He added: "Peter Beadle is the most positive man that I know and we can win two games."
Skipper Luke Graham said tonight's defeat summed up Hereford's season.
"We have had some great chances and we have not taken them at the right time.
"Our most common scoreline has been 1-0 and when we have won it has been 1-0.
"It is the first time I have ever been at the bottom of the league."
@HTnewsroom it's a disgrace where we have dropped too. So many mistakes it's not even funny. It's to late now but a sorry would be a start— @MattQuinn75 18 April 2014
Manager Pete Beadle said: "I am angry and frustrated but once we got to grips with the game I thought we did really well. Their keeper has won the man of the match award.
"The result is the real killer. The last goal-mouth scramble shows where we have been lacking for a long time now."
He added: "We failed to put the ball in the back of the net and in my very short time of doing the first team here that has been our biggest problem."

It has been a dreadful night for Hereford United.
They huffed and puffed in the second half after Sam Smith had missed two great chances in the first half.
This was a game Hereford had to win and they have come away with nothing.
it is looking very desperate now both on and off the pitch for the Bulls.
The final whistle goes and Sam Smith puts his hands on his head.
Pete Beadle walks on to the pitch to clap the away fans.
But it is a damaging defeat for Hereford, who now look in deep, deep trouble.
Sam Smith's low drives forces a sprawling save from Belford.
80 seconds remain at The Lamb.
You can feel the agony in the away end.
Sub for Tamworth: 90 min: Reindorf off and Nick Chadwick on.
We are deep into stoppage time.
Cameron Belford is being given the man of the match award by the sponsors, the pa announcer says over the tannoy system.

Just seven minutes remain here.
Hereford's fans behind the goal are looking very frustrated and there is an edgy atmosphere in the away end.
It is getting desperate for the Bulls now.
I cannot see how Hereford are going to score.
Bush long throw perhaps?
It is a long throw from Bush and Hereford almost level but Belford dives on the ball.
It looked like a Hereford player was going to poke the ball home as another chance goes begging.
Bush's long throws are like a missile!
The ball doesn't fall for Graham in the box as Hereford try to force an equaliser.
Anxious cries from the Hereford fans as the Bulls force a corner.

RT @HTnewsroom: GOAL. Tamworth score. Disaster for Hereford United. Lloyd Kerry dribbles in the box and drives the ball home.— @davidmfrance 18 April 2014
The Hereford fans have gone quiet now.
It looks like Hereford are facing relegation squarely in the face.
24 minutes left here.
SO CLOSE: Peniket should have made it 2-0.
He robbed Bush and raced into the area but his low shot was pushed around a post by the diving Lloyd-Weston.

Sam Smith drags a shot across the face of Tamworth's goal at the other end.
After a slow start to the second half, it has livened up.

The shot hit the inside of the post and bounced along the line - 51 minutes gone.
That was a lucky escape for Hereford.
Hereford's fans have been in good voice tonight.
There must be about 300 United fans behind the goal which Hereford will be attacking.
Rankine runs through for the Bulls and shakes off a defender but Belford saves at his feet.
"It is a huge half for Hereford," says BBC Hereford and Worcester commentator Keith Hall says on his microphone.
Hereford are playing up the slope in the second half.
Hereford United fan Gerald Powell thinks that the Bulls need to "step it up" and will take "a scruffy 1-0 win." http://t.co/wRKBM62TNy— @HTnewsroom 18 April 2014
We are off in the second half.
Referee blows the half time whistle and it is goalless.
A huge second half in store for Hereford.
Sam Smith had two close-range chances well saved by Tamworth's goalkeeper and Peniket rattled the bar for the hosts.
Rankine has worked hard for Hereford tonight and Sam Smith has had their two best chances.
One minute of added time to play in this first half.
BOOKING: 44 mins - Amido Batis-Cande is yellow-carded for a foul on Luke Graham.
RT @HTnewsroom: Tamworth hit the outside of the post. Former Hereford player Richard Peniket had the effort. Hereford survive. Still 0-0.— @davidmfrance 18 April 2014

RT @HTnewsroom: Action from Tamworth v Hereford http://t.co/6vZOOqFk9e— @Footballmaddamo 18 April 2014
SO CLOSE: Sam Smith is denied again by the feet of Belford in the 29th minute.
That was another great chance for Hereford.
Jarrod Bowen, once again, created the chance with a forward run.
Hereford's fans are getting behind their team tonight and a vital tackle by Graham.
Michael Rankine has just had a snap shot from outside the box but it has flown over the bar and out of the ground.
21 minutes have gone and there has not been much between the teams.
Kingsley James has just given away a foul. He appears to have shaved off his beard, following his recent goal at Welling.
Going back to that chance for Smith in the 15th minute, it was instigated by Jarrod Bowen who ran at the Tamworth defence.
Another action photo of tonight's game. It's still Tamworth 0-0 Hereford United. http://t.co/wD40Irb9jp— @HTnewsroom 18 April 2014
@ChrisSkudderSky Wow - love Newgale. Don't suppose the finder was a Hereford United fan was he?!— @SteveHodg3s 18 April 2014
SO CLOSE: Sam Smith has a point-blank range shot saved by Belford.
Manager Beadle looks very smart tonight - he's wearing a black jumper and grey trousers - he's not got his red baseball cap.
Hereford United's supporters are certainly making themselves heard. There is probably around 350 Bulls fans here tonight.— @HTnewsroom 18 April 2014
That was a great save by Belford in the 15th minute after excellent work between Bowen, Rankine and James.
Tamworth look the better side at the moment and force a corner through Peniket which comes to nothing.
Purdie was caught in possession there but Luke Graham cleared the danger.
A silly mistake that - Hereford can't afford to be sloppy tonight.
Tonight is a must-win game for Hereford.
The corner didn't come to anything but it was neat play from United and a good cross by Rob Purdie.
Good play by Hereford who force their first corner.
Hereford manager Peter Beadle and his assistant Steve Jenkins are on their feet outside the Hereford dug out.
It has been a fairly even open couple of minutes with most of the early exchanges in the Hereford half.
The game is now under way and Hereford are attacking down the slope in the first half.
