In the fourth minute of stoppage time, substitute Nathaniel Lewars forced the ball home after a free-kick was only partially cleared.


As full-time approaches, a low shot from Akinde is easily saved by Sommerville.


The Hereford defence is opened up again by McGurk who sets Thomas away into the area but Harris is unable to profit from his cross.


Dobson goes close with a 30-yard free-kick awarded after Luis Morrison picks up a yellow card for an overenthusiastic challenge.


Hereford are lucky to survive when Barrientos twice gets efforts from Thomas off the line in quick succession.

But the respite is only brief for, in the 77th minute, a cross shot from Dobson ends up in the back of the net.


Hereford go back on to the attack and it takes an exceptional save from Somerville to prevent Eubanks from giving the home side the lead.


Dobson is next to let fly, but with an equal lack of accuracy, shooting high over from 25 yards.


Yorke also wastes an opportunity for Slough when he heads over from 10 yards following a free-kick.


Slough miss a great chance on 65 minutes when Dobson chests the ball down to McClurg who shoots wide from eight yards.


A poor challenge on Salvador Ramierez by Reece Yorke earns the Slough centre-back the first yellow-card of the game.


Slough continue to look dangerous and a cross-shot from Dobson finds its way across goal with no-one able to get the final touch.


Hereford force a corner on 50 minutes but Slough break out and a run by McClurg ends with a pass to Witham, who shoots wide.


Roberts forces a low shot from Somerville as the second half gets underway.


Seven minutes before the break, Dobson again draws a save from Williams but might regret not pulling the ball back to McClurg, who is better placed.


Slough continue to attack and Alex Witham nods the ball inside for Jamie McClurg to send a volley flashing over the home goal.


But Slough race back down to the other end and Dobson’s poked shot draws a diving save from Luke Williams.

And Tom Moran heads wide from a good position following Dobson’s corner.


Shortly afterwards, after the Bulls force another corner, a curling effort from full-back Gary O’Neill goes wide of the target.


The Bulls are back on level terms after 25 minutes following another corner.

The ball breaks to Gary O’Neill on the edge of the area and his curling shot finds the back of the net.


Banks is similarly wasteful on 17 minutes, advancing purposefully before driving his shot high and wide from 30 yards.


Roberts makes another foray forward on 14 minutes but scuffs his shot wide of the target.


The lively Javia Roberts made speedy ground down the right on eight minutes and fed Dequon Eubanks whose shot deflects behind for a corner.

A minute later, there’s a corner at the other end but neither come to anything.
