HEREFORD will be missing another first team player when they head to Nantwich Town in the FA Trophy third round this afternoon.

The Bulls will be without defender Kennedy Digie and one other player who manager Josh Gowling would not name

“One of them will definitely not be playing and you’ll see that on matchday,” said Gowling.

“One of the other lads wasn’t in today as we thought it would be better to have him relax to make sure he’s right for Saturday.

“So far we’ve got one omission from Tuesday to Saturday.

“We play at tempo and at an intensity so the way we play we’re going to pick up little injuries from time to time but we’ve just got to adapt and deal with it.

“We don’t have the luxury of rotating as it’s not a big squad. The way we look at it is game by game so we want to win as many games as possible until the end of the season.

“If we get to 10 games time and blow up with loads of injuries it is what it is. We don’t have a squad to be able to move people around as much as we would like.

“A lot of squads have 20 players but we’re just not there unfortunately. We’re just going to take it game by game.”

The winners of the tie will win £4,500 and a place in the fourth round.

“It’s a competition and a big prize at the end of it so all the clubs will be wanting to push on and get to Wembley at the end of it,” added Gowling.

“We know it’s going to be a tough game. At that level Nantwich are probably one of the bigger clubs with a bigger history than most.

“It will be a really tough game and we will have to be on our mettle to go there and get a result.

“With them (Nantwich) not having played so many they could be fresh, you just don’t know.”
