Hereford United boss Graham Turner hopes to make two loan signings ahead of Saturday's crucial Nationwide Conference clash with lowly Gravesend & Northfleet at Edgar Street.

The Bulls chief has not revealed the identity of the players but one is known to be a right-back from a Second Division club in action on Tuesday night.

Turner needs to strengthen his squad because midfielder Danny Williams and leading marksman Steve Guinan are both serving one-match suspensions on Saturday, while full-back Matt Clarke is recovering from a knee operation.

Striker Scott Voice has joined Dr Martens League Premier Division outfit Hinckley United on an 18-month deal after signing for a nominal fee.

The former Bilston Town marksman joined United on a free transfer in the summer of 2001 but he was dogged by injury and made only 15 Conference appearances, scoring twice.

And central defender Andy Tretton is likely to be suspended for the rearranged league trip to Farnborough Town on Tuesday, February 4 after picking up his fifth booking of the campaign.

Hereford will be aiming to keep their play-off aspirations alive and avenge a humiliating 3-0 defeat to Gravesend in August.

Gravesend have since struggled and are in 19th position since promotion from the Ryman League Premier Division and have collected four wins and three draws from 14 away Conference matches.
