HEREFORD manager Russell Slade said his side deserved something out of the game against Leamington, possibly even all three points, but little "switch off moments" are still costing the Bulls.

The Whites were defeated 2-1 at home as they entertained Leamington, with Hereford's last league win coming against The Brakes on October 1.

When asked about the first goal his side conceded, Slade said: "Disappointed with the goals. I mean Brad (Brandon Hall, Hereford keeper) should do better with that.

"He's under pressure on another day could be a free kick as well but we shouldn't have given the corner away in the first place, we had an opportunity to clear, we didn't."

A corner from Junior English was swung in from the right-hand side and Hall protested he was fouled in the scramble which ended with the stopper seemingly punching the ball into the back of his own net.

Victor Sodeinde equalised for Hereford in the 35th minute has he managed to tuck away a shot from a tight angle, Leamington retook the lead within seconds of the second half getting underway.

The visitors intercepted a midfield ball and Dexter Walter carried the ball forward into the box before teeing up Kaiman Anderson.

He then made no mistakes as he curled the ball home.

"The second goal, in the first five minutes of the second half, before we really got going," Slade added.

"We've kind of overplayed a little bit in the middle of the park and given the ball away. They countered on as and got themselves a goal.

"Take those two things out of the game that Leamington have had, they've had very little else, maybe one other opportunity in the game but that was offside anyway.

"We created three or four really good opportunities first half, couple of good opportunities in the second period.

"Between the boxes there was someone in encouraging things and it was a pretty young team at the end there, but you know probably a little bit more experience and we might have turned it.

"I felt for them today because I thought we deserved something out of the game, if not all three points if I'm honest."

Victor Sodeinde was a good spark for Hereford throughout the game, and was Hereford's goalscorer as they came from behind in the first half.

But the youngster was forced off in the second half with what is hoped was only cramp.

"I thought Victor was a real threat today and he's nicked a goal for us before. We got in back to fitness again but he cramped up. We are hoping at this stage that's all it is and it's not like a hamstring.

"We'll have to wait and see if it settles down over the next 48 hours but he was really bright he was on the end of most things that we were trying to create in the first period and got himself a great goal as well."

Slade also confirmed that of the four changes made, defender Jack Bodenham was unable to take part in today's game as he is suffering with a swollen ankle picked up at Kidderminster on Thursday, and fellow centre-back Josh Gowling was unwell.

When asked if today's performance gives the side confidence going into Wednesday's home game against local rivals Harriers, Slade said: "Yes, of course it does because I thought between the two boxes there were some good things.

"There are some things we need to do a lot better, there's no doubt about that, but I thought we were in command we were managing the game reasonably well but it is when there's those little switch off moments like in the first five minutes of the second half today it's cost us dearly."
