HEREFORD manager Russell Slade says there is no hiding place for his players when they travel to King's Lynn Town this Saturday.

The Linnets, who haven't been beaten at The Walks since September last year, welcome Hereford on Saturday for their FA Trophy third qualifying round clash.

The sides go into the tie in contrasting form with the Bulls beaten 5-1 at Altrincham on Saturday, a fourth defeat in five league games.

Meanwhile, newly promoted King's Lynn went top of the National League North following a 2-1 win at Southport and beat Hereford 3-1 in the league earlier this season.

With the odds stacked against his side, Bulls manager Slade says there will be no hiding place.

He said: “It’s probably the sort of fixture that we need right now because there is no hiding place,

“I watched them against Altrincham and they looked a very decent side. It will be a real thorough test."

Slade said that he felt responsible for Saturday's 5-1 capitulation at Altrincham.

He added: “You can’t make excuses and I can’t dodge it as well.

“Okay I’ve inherited some of those players but they’re my team as well. I feel totally responsible and I’m not dodging that, when they cross that white line they’ve got to want to do it and have a strong mentality to see it through right from the first minute until the last minutes."

When asked if some players would depart from his squad and others brought in, Slade added: “I think that has to be a conversation going forward.

“You can’t keep giving people opportunities to deliver, we have to look at it.”
