Hereford move forward again and Vetier sends a left-foot shot skidding just wide.

4:35pm

Redditch regain the lead on 80 minutes with an end-to-end move.

Carline surges away down the left and crosses to the six-yard box where Jamie Spencer has the easy task of side-footing home.

4:25pm

Redditch counter-attack swiftly and Molyneux cuts into the area before curling a drive just around an upright.

4:21pm

Hereford are level on 68 minutes when the ball drops nicely for Oneyeike who shoots left-footed into the corner of the net.

4:19pm

But Redditch are quickly back on the attack and Sammons has a shot tipped over.

From the corner, a header by Molyneux is cleared off the line and Hereford break oit.

As the attack moves forward, James Mutton challenges Ramirez and looks as surprised as the rest of those present when referee Adam Matthews produces a red card.

4:15pm

Hereford have a great chance to level on 61 minutes when the ball is worked through to Akinde.

Hornby pulls off a good save to foil the tall striker but the rebound falls to Steve Vetier who fires over a gaping goal.

4:12pm

Hereford introduce two more substitutes but are almost caught out when Molyneux gets away and fires in a shot which brings a straightforward save from Williams.

4:08pm

Hereford are showing a little more life as the second half moves forward and a fine run by Browne ends in a powerful shot which is well saved.

4:01pm

Akinde’s shot on the turn goes out of the ground at the start of the second period.

3:40pm

Hereford hit back to force a corner but it comes to nothing.

3:38pm

Sammons, who has been the half’s best player, goes close again with a 25-yarder on 38 minutes.

And then Williams has to show his athleticism to dive to grasp a cross from Molyneux after the striker gets clear on the right.

3:33pm

Hereford force a corner on 34 minutes – Ramirez’s cross picks out the head of Gascogne but the centre-back nods the ball wide.

3:24pm

The Hereford defence is opened up on 24 minutes.

The ball arrives at the feet of Hylton from Sammons and the forward easily sidesteps Williams to shoot home.

3:22pm

Hereford win a corner on 22 minutes. O’Reilly delivers the cross but Jordan Jones clears easily.

3:18pm

Hereford have to make a substitution on 16 minutes with Diop replaced by Leandro Browne.

Sammons drifts a shot just wide for Redditch before a volley by Akinde, from a corner by Roberts, also misses the target.

3:10pm

Hereford break out and Akinde clears the bar from 20 yards.

3:10pm

Hereford’s Baker-Kone makes a goal-line clearance before United have another let-off in the 10th minute.

Jermaine Hylton lets fly from the edge of the area and the ball thuds against a post before being cleared.

3:07pm

Redditch have to make an early substitution with Liam Spink replaced by Leavi Oshungbure.

3:06pm

Redditch win a free-kick in a dangerous position 20 yards out but former Bull Ashley Sammons drills his shot straight at Luke Williams in the home goal.

As a Cambridge fan I have been watching the Hereford United story unfold with a degree of "but for the grace of god...". Last time I was critical of the media http://www.herefordt

I'm now turning my criticism to the Trust.
One of the criticisms levelled at the current incumbents of the club is "poor communication" another is "mixed messages", all leading most to draw their own conclusions, and most dangerously, come up with their own conspiracy theories. Well, the trust are just as quiet, aren't they? Where are the statements? Where are the updates? Where are the questions that should be asked on an almost daily basis? Months in and there are more questions than answers, something borne out by the reasons given by those boycotting, I've read about 10 different reasons on the message board alone.
Supporters (and I did when Cambridge were in crisis 9 years ago and minutes from closing) look to the trust for leadership, for dialogue and information. The Trust really does need to step up to the mark and really take the lead.
Furthermore, they may well be handed the baton on 2nd September, particularly regarding the ongoing lease of Edgar Street. I hope they are ready, but my confidence isn't great at the moment.

And don't worry, I am yet to be critical of Those supporting the boycott and those who are not supporting the boycott and of course the current owners (whoever they are). I can't help feeling that nobody is coming out of this with any credit at all.

Cambridge fan ive read both ur statements on two blogs and loved them all..
Im a hereford fan who kept away from the first two matches for respect to the HUST ..But like u say even they have gone quiet now..and the so called protestors have dwindled down to one at saturdays game (But then again no cameras were around..so they wouldnt see there faces in the paper)..
Plus i did see some off those faces that were in the paper at the match saturday shouting support for hereford united as they always did....
So to answer ur question..the only people coming out off this with any credit or dignity are the people who just carried on going to the matches and didnt take sides..As for the owners or protestors..Hang ur heads in shame..uve made a mockery off our club..
