HEREFORD winger Alex Bray says that his side’s first league win in 12 league games is a relief to the side.

The winless run saw the Bulls drop to 17th in the table below local rivals Kidderminster Harriers.

However, their 2-1 win over the Harriers saw the Bulls leapfrog their rivals in the table and climb two places.  

“I think it’s been a relief for the boys really as it’s been a tough couple of months for us but we’ve stuck together,” said Bray.

“I think you’ll see our hard work paying off and we’ll get a little run going now. We’ve got the quality in the team and I think it was just a matter of time for the fans to see what we can do.

“I thought the lads were brilliant today. I think the gaffer has seen their weaknesses and it’s give us the advantage over them.

“I think you did see that as they didn’t create as much chances and I thought the boys stuck to the plan well.

“It’s been great to start the game as I’ve been waiting a while, I thought I’ve put in a few good performances off the bench and I was just waiting for my time. The gaffer has given it to me and I’m really happy about it.

Former Swansea City scholar Bray missed the first part of the season through injury but has showcased his talent in recent weeks.

The 24-year-old felt he should have won a second Bulls penalty against Kidderminster with his side 1-0 ahead.

He said: “I thought I should have had a penalty and it was a bit of a dodgy call as it was definitely in the box, but that’s football at the end of the day, added Bray.

“I think they can be sloppy at the back and we’ve got a lot of quick players in the team with me, Victor (Sodiende) and Kelsey (Mooney) to counter-attack them and you’ve seen that today.”
