SECOND-HALF goals from substitute Paul Fewings and Leroy May helped Hereford to extend their unbeaten run to six Nationwide Conference games.

United boss Graham Turner must have feared the worst, taking into account Hereford's past record of 12 defeats - and just seven goals - in 15 previous visits to Belle Vue when an excellently-worked free-kick gave Kevin McIntyre the chance to shoot the home side in front after just three minutes.

But the Bulls kept a tight grip on the home forwards for the remainder of the first half and improved as the game went on, with two Turner substitutions playing their part in earning a point.

Paul Fewings, who had replaced Paul Sturgess after 61 minutes, continued to show his remarkable instinct for goal by getting into the right place to net Hereford's equaliser five minutes later.

A free-kick by Tony James found on-loan defender Tom White on the right-hand side of the Rovers penalty area. Goalkeeper Andy Warrington did well to tip the Bristol Rovers man's firmly struck shot on to the woodwork but, when the ball came back into play, an acrobatic overhead effort from Fewings saw the ball nestling comfortably in the back of the net.

Dino Maamria, who received an award as Doncaster's player of the month for January before the kick-off, restored the home side's advantage when he picked up a loose ball on the edge of the penalty area to give Scott Cooksey no chance with a well-struck shot.

But another Turner substitution quickly paid dividends with the goal of the game arriving 10 minutes from time.

Paul Parry, who had replaced Gavin Williams just two minutes previously, went outside his full-back and got to the by-line before sending over a perfect cross for Leroy May to score at the far post.

A minute later Cooksey, who could not be faulted for the first two goals he has conceded since joining the club on-loan from Shrewsbury Town three matches ago, came to Hereford's rescue. He made an acrobatic tip-over after a shot by Minett from the edge of the penalty area took a deflection.

In a bad-tempered interlude in the run-up to half-time, John Snape and May were booked for fouls. Three Doncaster players also found their way into the referee's notebook.
