  • Grimes was equal in blocking Hemmings' powerful effort before Alex Prosser blazed over.

  • Seconds before the half-time whistle defender Cliff Moyo rose highest and met a corner only to see his effort drop wide.

  • At the other end Hemmings remained a threat and forced Hall into making a smart save.
  • Hereford were level on 66 minutes from the penalty spot after striker John-Lewis was brought down before getting up and firing home.
  • Hereford probed to take the lead and McQuilkin was only denied by a fine Sampson save.
