Hereford scrambled their first point in three Vauxhall Conference games but it took an 89th-minute goal to snatch the draw on Tuesday, writes RICHARD PRIME.

The Bulls, who had dominated the second half without finding the cutting edge to pierce a determined Telford defence, earned their 10th corner of the game with a minute to play. Brian McGorry's flag-kick was flicked on by Trevor Matthewson at the near post but Chris Hargreaves' touch was sending the ball wide until Neil Grayson's boot intervened.

United's top scorer hammered the ball against the bar but whether it bounced down over the line before Hargreaves smashed it into the back of the net was a matter that even the video footage of the game was unable to prove conclusively. There was no doubt about who scored the opening goal six minutes before the interval, however, and it was a strike which provoked mixed emotions in the Turner household with the 'culprit' being the United director of football's son, Mark.

Turner junior could, in fact, have put the result beyond doubt in the 56th minute but his contact on Ian Duerden's cross was not sufficiently powerful to deflect the ball past Andy Quy, who gathered safely in the United goal. This was one of the few occasions when Quy was called into the action as most of the play took place well into the Telford half.

But United, who had failed to score for 276 minutes before kick-off, rarely troubled Mark Jones in the visitors' goal and when a good opportunity arose it invariably seemed to fall to the hapless James McCue, who has still to score since his arrival at Edgar Street in October.

Hereford: Quy, Warner, Fishlock, Pitman, Agana, Matthewson, Hargreaves, McGorry, Grayson, Foster (sub McCue, 46 mins), Mahon. Subs not used: Downing, Williams.

Attendance: 1,371.
