  • ROLLING MATCH REPORT
  • The Bulls got off to a perfect start going ahead inside four minutes with Jared Hodgkiss' driven cross flicked onto the post and Kelsey Mooney slid home the rebound.
  • Despite York probing for a way back into the tie it was Hereford who doubled their lead.
  • Tom Owen-Evans' free-kick found Lenell John-Lewis who headed home from close range.
  • York looked for a response and Sean Newton had a chance, but sent his header just over.
  • Dan McGuire was next to go close but after running free on goal Martin Riley came across to make a vital block.
  • York showed their warning signs on the 24th minute when a flicked header rattled the bar before Kieran Green squandered the rebound.
  • The hosts thought they had pulled a goal back after 27 minutes after Kallum Griffiths cross is met by Jordan Burrow who beat the goalkeeper but not the off-side flag.
  • A minute later the hosts had pulled a goal back with Adriano Moke threading through to Alex Kempster who fired home.
  • Brandon Hall was then forced to tip David Ferguson's looping header over his own crossbar.
  • The Bulls, who looked dangerous going forward, broke again and were only denied a third goal by the legs of goalkeeper Peter Jameson.
  • York thought they had leveled on 48th minute when Ferguson's cross found Green who hit the post before Hall stopped the ball on the line.
  • However, two minutes later the Bulls increased their lead after Jason Pope met Owen-Evans' corner.
  • After seeing his first rifled effort tipped over John-Lewis fired home at the second time of asking with a bullet of a shot which crashed into the net.
  • York were completely out of luck and that showed when Griffiths' cross was headed onto his own woodwork by Jarrod Hodgkiss
