  • HEREFORD take on League One side Portsmouth tonight in the FA Cup first round in front of a sold-out Edgar Street.
  • Bulls marksman Tyrone Barnett says that the belief that anybody can be beaten is the mentality Hereford need going into tonight's game.
  • The sell-out crowd is expected tonight with 5,000 fans inside Edgar Street including 700 away
  • There will be a minute of silence to pay tribute to Ronnie Radford ahead of tonight's game.
  • Radford wrote himself into Hereford folklore with the equalising goal in Hereford’s 2-1 FA Cup third-round victory over Newcastle United in 1972.
  • He died earlier this week.
  • There are 81 league places between the two sides and let's not forget that League One Pompey have a bit of a cup pedigree having won this competition twice - in 1939 and 2008.
  • Hereford have won three FA Cup matches on their way to the first round including an away win at National League side Bromley
