KELSEY Mooney hopes his new strike partnership with Lenell John-Lewis will help the Bulls to put points on the board.

The 21-year-old, former Aston Villa academy forward, signed for Hereford in October but had only scored three goals in 17 appearances prior to last week's trip to York City.

However, after linking up with John-Lewis the young forward found then net at York and in Saturday's win at Farsley Celtic.

"Goals is something you always strive for as a striker and I've struggled with it this season," said Mooney.

"But I've got into a decent run of form so hopefully I can keep that going. I feel like Josh (Gowling) taking over has a lot of faith in me I feel.

"I'm not saying previous managers didn't, I just feel we understand each other a lot better and I know what he wants me to do to get the job done.

"Some people have come back from loan and some people have come back into the side and that's what you get with a new manager, it's a second opportunity."

Experienced John-Lewis unselfishly passed for Mooney's goal at Farsley Celtic, before the young forward also rattled the crossbar and had a late effort cleared off the line.

"I enjoy it, I get on well with him (John-Lewis) and we play well with each other as well on the pitch which is good," said Mooney.

"It's a roll I'm not used but I feel I'm doing okay with it. He's an experienced player who has played in the league a long time and he tries to help me when I can, I appreciated it.

"We're developing a decent partnership and I'm enjoying it. Hopefully as long as we can both stay in the team and keep setting each other up and getting goals we can get some more points on the board."
