KING’S Lynn manager Ian Culverhouse predicts a ‘classic' encounter when his side visit Edgar Street on Saturday (3pm kick off).

Speaking to the Lynn News he said: “It could be a real classic.

“They are a great side and, for the neutral, their visit to us in January was an outstanding game played between two high quality sides, which we nicked right at the end.

“I’m not surprised by Hereford and the season they are having.

"They are a big club where things went wrong a few years back but they are now fighting their way back up the pyramid and I’m sure it won’t be long before they are playing league football again. “Having said that we have our own challenges and targets more immediately and it’s important that we get something from this game.

“It’s so tight in and around us. There will be jostling and changing positions between now and the end of next month with points being gained and dropped by everyone.

“I understand we are taking a good following to Hereford. I’m sure it will be a cracking atmosphere with a big crowd and two quality teams going at it.”

A big crowd is expected at Edgar Street with the main Merton Stand sold out and only limit tickets available in the other seated Len Weston stand
