HEREFORD Head Coach Marc Richards said that he hopes to bring experienced players into his side ahead of next weekend’s game against FC United of Manchester.

His side saw Darlington deny them a vital three points as they remain without a league win since the middle of August.

Richards said: “I’m hoping we will be able to bring in some reinforcements in terms of adding quality to the squad as we’re not good enough at the moment, simple as that.

“We need to get better players in and a better squad together to be competing week in week out. We are hoping to bring a couple of bodies in for next Saturday.

“You saw that today that lack of experience we have got out there. We need that experience, we need men. We need that sort of physicality to deal with the oppositions that we have got.”

Tom Owen-Evans scored in each half for Hereford as they looked on course for a vital win, but Richards was disappointed with the mistakes which allowed Darlington to equalise and almost win the tie.

“It was pleasing being 2-0 up but frustrating that we’ve let it slip with some of the same mistakes and naivety,” Richards added.

“I’m not going to be happy until we’re consistently putting performances together and wins together and we’re still waiting for that illusive win but again there are some positive signs.

“The big positive from today was Mike Symons. We know it’s a difficult time and there is frustration at the moment but we know what we’re doing and will sort this out but ultimately we’re not good enough at the moment and we need to sort that.

“It doesn’t change over-night there have been some positive signs but massive areas of improvement and we need to sort it.

“If you’re 2-0 up in a game you need to see it out and we didn’t. We’ve had words in there and told them that we can’t keep making the same mistakes.

“I’m glad we got a point out of it but disappointed that we didn’t get all three.”
