HEREFORD FC manager Josh Gowling blamed a lack of communication on the three goals conceded during a 3-3 draw with Kettering Town at Edgar Street.

Despite going ahead in the first half the Bulls conceded twice before Jared Hodgkiss netted in reply.

Kettering regained the lead through Ryan Fryatt before a red card for Mike McGrath saw the visitors reduced to 10 men.

Lenell John-Lewis pulled the Bulls back once again from the penalty spot to earn a 3-3 draw.

“You come in at half-time 1-0 up after completely controlling the game and you come out in the second half and concede a goal from a throw-in after a minute it’s probably not pleasing,” Gowling told Keith Hall for BBC Hereford and Worcester.

“And then you switch off again. To be honest their three goals have come from three lack of communication.

“Three times we’ve switched off, not communicated and they’ve scored three goals from it.

“At this level you can’t do that it doesn’t matter how good you are on the ball. If you score three goals at home really you should win the game.

“At the moment we’re switching off in certain areas at certain times of the game. "We’re controlling the game of football as a whole and then there’s patches of the game where we’re switching off and getting punished for it.”
