Hereford United's players will be playing for their FA Umbro Trophy places when they entertain Woking in the Nationwide Conference tonight (7.45).

That's the clear message from Director of Football Graham Turner.

It's not only with Saturday's Sky-televised Trophy quarter-final at home to Burton Albion in mind, but also to help lift them back into fourth place in the Conference. They slipped to sixth after being without a game at the weekend.

Turner said: "It is up to the players that are in the side to make sure they stay in it for Saturday."

Turner is expected to include skipper Ian Wright and winger Paul Parry among the substitutes, having recovered from hamstring and ankle injuries respectively, and both could stake claims for starting places on Saturday if they impress tonight.

United otherwise have no fresh injury worries from the side that beat Morecambe on penalties in last week's Trophy replay.

However, they won't find it easy against mid-table Woking, whose 2-0 defeat at leaders Rushden and Diamonds on Saturday was their first in the Conference this year.

Former Bulls defender Jamie Pitman, who should figure tonight, was sent off in that game.

Turner added: "They have had a very good run and are quite a tough side to play against with a number of decent players."

It's the third time the sides have met this season -- Hereford won 3-0 at Kingfield in the league in September but Woking gained revenge with a 1-0 FA Cup success in October.
