Hereford United must get used to home comforts again when they entertain Dover Athletic in the Nationwide Conference tomorrow (3.00).

It is the Bulls' first game at Edgar Street for four weeks and the only one in a run of seven Conference matches.

But Director of Football Graham Turner hopes they can make up for lost time against a side currently fourth in the table.

He said: "It is nice to come back home at last and have two loan players in the side who will be making their home debuts.

"We have shown quite good form away from home and had some reasonable results, and we have to keep that little bit of form going."

Defender Paul Sturgess is United's main fitness worry. He has been suffering from 'flu all week and was forced to come off during last week's 2-2 draw at Doncaster.

Turner said: "He has done some training this week but we will have to see how he is."

Central defender Tony James filled in at left-back at Doncaster after Sturgess' withdrawal and could start in that position.

Strikers Paul Fewings and Rob Elmes and winger Paul Parry could all make claims for a starting place after being on the bench at Doncaster.

Loan signings, Shrewsbury goalkeeper Scott Cooksey and Bristol Rovers defender Tom White, will at long last get a chance to perform in front of a home crowd as the Bulls, who are currently 12th in the table, look to stretch their unbeaten Conference run to seven matches.

Dover, who beat Hereford 2-0 at home back in September, had been one of the in-form sides in the Conference until they were beaten 4-0 at home by fellow title chasers Rushden and Diamonds last weekend.

Turner added: "They had been going quite well up to last Saturday, and there will be a backlash from that, knowing the way they have looked all season. There has been a lot of pride in their performances."

Hereford: Cooksey, Lane, Sturgess, Snape, Wright, White, Rodgerson, Taylor, May, Williams, James, Fewings, Parry, Elmes, Clarke, Jones, Wall, Hanson.
