HEREFORD interim manager Josh Gowling says his team have been 'hitting training on all fronts' despite the enforced break in fixtures.

Storm Dennis saw Saturday's scheduled visit to York City and Tuesday's trip to Kettering Town both postponed due to hazardous travelling conditions.

Gowling says there has been no rest for his players as they look for a first win under his management on Saturday at home against Darlington.

"It's been difficult preparing for York for it to be called off and then Kettering as well, it was bit frustrating but it is what it is," said Gowling.

"It's difficult to get momentum with breaks in games like that.

"We are just trying to keep focused the best we can. We want to change the environment and what we are doing.

"So there is no time for a break, we've been on the training ground hitting it hard.

"We've been working on our strength and conditioning and hitting it on all fronts.

"There is no time for a break due to where we are in the league at the moment.

"If we were flying high then it would be good to have a break but at this moment we time we can't afford that luxury."

Keiran Thomas and Martin Riley could both be drafted into Saturday's team after returning to training.

Meanwhile Danny Greenslade had a scan on his injury this week and is due to see a specialist.

Defenders Jordan Cullinane-Liburd and Ben Pollock will both miss the Edgar Street tie due to suspension.

"It's home games myself and the team look forwards to most," added Gowling

"The fans have been so good to us this season and stuck by us through the ups and downs.

"We are looking to repay that now, hoping to push on and preparing for a higher standard of football."

Darlington, who sit just outside the play-off places, have had mixed away form this season with four wins, two draws and eight defeats.

They have also been without a fixture since drawing 1-1 at Kidderminster Harriers on February 8.

"Darlington are in and around the play-offs so they've been better than us this season," added Gowling.

"The last home game the levels were nowhere near where they have been at.

"We need to get back to those levels and look at picking up maximum points."
