  • The Bulls doubled their lead seven minutes later when Kyle Finn's effort from 30 yards out took a deflection and flew into the net.
  • At two goals down the Cambridgeshire visitors remained a threat and Liam Bennett crossed for a diving Ryan Robbins who should have scored but the ball skips away from him.
  • Hereford probed in the second half for a third goal and Finn curled an effort just wide.
  • Owen-Evans came within an inch of increasing Hereford's lead heading off the post before James McQuilkin volleyed the rebound over.
  • John-Lewis was in on goal on the 66th minute mark but saw his effort saved one-on-one by goalkeeper Louis Chadwick who was quickly out.
  • Moments later John-Lewis did fire a third home with his effort deflecting home off St Neot's player/manager Barry Corr.
  • Despite having the game won Hereford kept probing and Finn saw his effort fly into the side-netting.
