WELLINGTON manager Jon Pugh felt disappointed that his side only got a draw against Hereford FC.

Matty James had a golden chance to win the tie for Welly at the death, but after beating his man inside the box sent his effort just wide.

That was after Paul Jones saw his opener cancelled out in the 1-1 draw.

"I was probably disappointed we only got a draw out of it in the end," said Pugh

"Kieron (Blackburn) has made one or two good saves but I think after the first 15 minutes of the first half when we literally weathered the storm of the weather we just got onto the ball and played.

"We're under no illusions that it's Hereford's first game and they've got trialists and they want to try different things but for us it was a really good result.

"We obviously could have won it when Matty (James) went through and did so well to get into the position he did but he just pulled it wide into the side-netting, that's the way it is."

Pugh added that he was proud of his side who responded once the Bulls got a second half equaliser and looked to win the tie.

"I was really proud of the lads that did come on that injected a bit of energy and put them under pressure and it was a fairly even game towards the end," added Pugh.

"When you don't train as much as you'd like to it's very hard to get rigid in your shape and formation.

"They pulled us around a little bit which meant in the last 15 minutes that they did get on the ball."
