MARKSMAN Rowan Liburd said that staying alert and sharp inside the box was key to his success as he netted twice on his home debut against Stockport County.

The 26-year-old scored his 15th and 16th goal of the season as the Bulls fought back from two goals down to snatch a 2-2 draw against their visitors.

“Personally for me to score in front of the fans was a big accomplishment and I’ve ticked it off and I just want to keep it going now,” said Liburd.

 “You can see the fans are so passionate, you get that vibe and energy so you just want to give it back to them.

“It’s just staying alert and sharp in the box is pretty crucial because you never know how many chances you are going to get in a game.

“I was just fortunate to take both of them today. You just want to be on your toes waiting for anything that happens luckily the ball just dropped and I was just in two good positions to score.

“It was a game of two halves and in the first half we didn’t really get going. But the team talk (at half-time) really motivated us to push on and give it a real go.

“First half was a tough task but in the second half going down that little slope makes the world of difference.

“It was good to score at home and I think the first half we didn’t really get going but the second half was great.

“We have to come out with the same attitude we started the second half with every game.”

Liburd’s equaliser came in the third minute of injury time after Tom Owen-Evans made a darting run inside the box before squaring to his team-mate.

“Tom Owen-Evans did great and he has got really good feet so is able to get past his player,” said Liburd.

“All goals count and I was just in the right place at the right times. Hopefully my next goal will come and it will earn us three points but we will take a point from today considering how poor we were in the first half and move on.”

Liburd currently lives in London but after signing a contract to remain at Edgar Street until the end of next season says he is planning to move nearer to Hereford.

“Because I am here next year as well the plan is to move up here and settle down and focus on my football,” Liburd added.

“This season I have already travelled from London to Guiseley and it doesn’t really phase me as long as I get to play football and I’m in and around a great bunch of lads then I’m more than willing to commute.”
