DEFENDER Danny Greenslade says that cutting out individual mistakes is key for his team flying back up the National League North.

Hereford head to Stockport County on Saturday on the back of six league defeats in their last seven games, a run which has seen them slip down to 17th and just three points above the bottom three.

An individual Jamie Bird mistake allowed Welling United to put the FA Cup tie beyond Hereford on Saturday and Greenslade says the team need to cut them out.

"In every game we've been in it until we've had to chase the game from stupid mistakes and that's cost us at the moment, individual mistakes," said Greenslade following the 2-0 defeat.

"I've had one or two myself and hopefully if we can cut them out of our game and then we can fly up the table again.

"The league is our bread and butter but everyone wants a cup run, you had one last season and I'm sure the fans would have enjoyed another one.

"I think the first goal our thoughts go with Martin Horsell and Mike McGrath and hopefully they will be okay and the second goal is just an individual mistake.

"After the second goal we dropped our heads a little bit after the results we've had."

Greenslade, aged 24, previously played under new head coach Marc Richards during a loan spell at Gloucester City.

He says that Richards' training programme will be 'completely different' to that of the previous management.

"I know him from my time at Gloucester, he is a brilliant coach and I know exactly what we will get and with structure into the team we can only get better," added Greenslade.

"His first message was to stay with each other as if we don't we aren't going to get out of this rut so the sooner the better.

"Pete Beadle and Steve Jenkins had their way of training and playing but Marc will come in and do something completely different so it depends how quick we can used to it.

"The new manager might have different opinions of people so you have to me on your mettle every game because one bad game and if he doesn't like what he sees you never know what might happen."
