Hereford United Director of Football Graham Turner believes his players are still suffering from the after-effects of their FA Cup run.

The Bulls go into tomorrow's Nationwide Conference game at Hednesford Town (3.00) without a win in their last seven games.

And in a bid to halt the slide they have signed on loan former Bromsgrove Rov-ers goalkeeper Scott Cooksey from Shrewsbury and central defender Tom White from Bristol Rovers.

Both are set to make their debuts tomorrow.

Hereford's last victory -- at home to Southport -- was in their last match before the first of their two epic Cup ties with Leicester City.

The run has left United 14th in the table and just six points outside the relegation zone, while their faint title hopes look to have gone after dropping 15 points behind leaders Kidderminster Harriers.

Turner said: "I have seen it happen before where sides have suffered from the effects of reaching great heights.

"It happened to Hednesford a couple of years ago when they took Middlesbrough very close and hardly won another game for the rest of the season.

"The two Leicester games were the biggest in the careers of some of our players, and it might be they never go anywhere near that again. That is why we have needed to freshen up the squad."

The Bulls are once again short of manpower for tomorrow's game, with skipper Ian Wright and defender Matt Clarke both still under suspension.

James Wall, who replaced Wright in last week's 2-2 home draw with Altrincham, is struggling with a groin injury and winger Paul Parry has a knee problem. Turner rates both as "doubtful".

However, striker Leroy May could return to the starting line-up after shaking off a bout of 'flu.
