HEREFORD manager Pete Beadle says he will be glad when everyone will be back fit after having to make a number of changes again on Tuesday night.

Eliot Richards and Jack Deaman both missed the 2-1 win at Stratford Town due to injury and now Beadle will have to contend with Dara O'Shea being unavailable for a few games after being sent off.

"Fortunately for us we've got some good players and they put in some good performances but it's not ideal," said Beadle.

"I will just be glad when we get everyone back.

"After Saturday and the game on New Year's Day and the games leading up to Boxing Day, it's a monstrous amount of games.

"You can look at it and say it's not fair, but we've got to get on with it and keep rolling our sleeves up.

"Hopefully in the next week to 10 days we will have everyone available.

"Dinsley is nearly there, Eliot [Richards] hopefully won't be too long and Jack [Deaman] will hopefully be available next week so we should hopefully be back to full strength.

"At the moment we're just ploughing through the games."

Beadle felt that his team had to grind out the win.

"It was a little bit short around the box in the first half because we had some good opportunities to get some interplay going, but it didn't quite fall for us," he said.

"In the second half we asked them to just up the ante a little bit and we started the half really well.

"We got the penalty which by all accounts was quite fortuitous and then a quick second.

"The game was quite comfortable for us after that because they weren't bothering us.

"But then one moment of youthfulness and inexperience [from O'Shea] sees us on the backfoot.

"He had to make the challenge and unfortunately he had to walk for it.

"It was backs-to-the-wall a bit but they stood up for it and apart from the one goal, we did great."

Hereford are now just two points off Evo-Stik South leaders King's Lynn with three games in hand.

This Saturday though, the Bulls will turn their attention to the FA Trophy where they will face National League South side Wealdstone in the second round.

"It's one we want to progress in but it is a little bit more of a freebie because there's no points at stake," admitted Beadle.
