  • ROLLING MATCH REPORT
  • The Yeltz were almost handed the lead inside the opening minute when a low cross was sliced off the centre back Bulls trialist just wide of his own goal.
  • Former Bulls striker Jamie Molyneux should have put Halesowen ahead but saw his low effort saved when through on goal.
  • Hereford's first effort came after 13 minutes with a quick counter-attack resulting in a midfield trialist seeing his effort skip just wide.
  • Two minutes later the Bulls were ahead when a long ball beat the off-side trap. The Bulls trialist striker saw his header palmed tipped down by the goalkeeper and he scored the rebound.
  • Moments later the Bulls could have been reduced to 10 men when James Bowen had a Hereford trialist in a headlock.
  • The trialist responded and his arm connected with Bowen, but the referee chose against any action.
  • Molyneux went close again on 25 minutes seeing his first effort and rebound saved by close range from the trialist goalkeeper.
  • Jack Holmes was next to test the Hereford shot stopper cutting inside before seeing his low effort saved by the keeper's legs.
  • Holmes was in again moments later but saw his low shot saved once again.
  • Danny Westwood was next to test the Bulls trialist goalkeeper, but he was equal to the effort.
  • Four minutes before the break the Yeltz were level through a looping Westwood shot from outside the box which nestled into the top corner of the net.
  • The Yeltz should have had a 53rd minute lead when Bowen opened the visitors up before pulling the ball back for Jamie Ashmore who put his effort wide.
  • Former Bulls Molyneux put his side ahead on 63 minutes driving at the defence which opened up before chipping over substitute goalkeeper Paul White.
  • A third Yeltz goal three minutes from time sealed the victory with substitute Robbie Bunn finding space before driving low past White to seal the victory.
