HEREFORD manager Pete Beadle says his team are ready to face anyone in the FA Cup.

The Bulls are through to the fourth qualifying round after beating AFC Hornchurch 2-0 today.

But despite the National League teams now entering the fray, Beadle says he doesn't mind who his team face as they seek to make the first round proper.

"We've confident at the moment and are playing extremely well home and away," said Beadle.

"Ideally we'd love to be at home, but we're ready to face anyone that comes our way in the draw.

"Hopefully with a bit we luck we can have a home game against a team that we feel we're comfortable with, but it's the FA Cup which makes it so great.

"Whatever draw we have, we'll take it and prepare for it but we've got a couple of games in between."

Beadle was pleased this afternoon's performance, which was won thanks to goals from Keyon Reffell and John Mills.

"We set up to try and play at a really good tempo, because if we do, teams will find it difficult," said Beadle.

"We need to have that energy and we've shown over the last three or four weeks that we've got some real momentum, which is great and we want to keep it going.

"We're pleased where we are at the moment and we're delighted to be through to the next round because it's the furthest we've gone in the competition after last year."

Mills' goal from the penalty spot after a Hornchurch player handled in the box.

"It looks like the lad has slipped and the ball has hit his hand which stopped it running through to someone else to have a chance at goal," explained Beadle.

"It must have been pretty clear because the ref gave it straight way."

Defeats for Redditch United and Tiverton Town in the Evo-Stik South today mean Hereford are still fourth in the division.

"We're going to be a couple of games behind now we're into this round, but as long as it stays a couple of games as I'll rather points in the bag than games to play," said Beadle.

"But if that is the case and teams have dropped points, then that's good for us."
