HEREFORD goalkeeper Brandon Hall says that the Bulls need to be ruthless when in the ascendancy after playing out a 1-1 draw against his former club Kidderminster Harriers.

After going behind in the first half the Bulls equalised through Lenell John-Lewis’ 66th minute penalty and could have clinched victory in the closing stages.

“I think there is probably 80 per cent of our squad and staff who have been at Kidderminster at some point so there’s always a little bit to prove and you want to get a win,” said Hall.

“The fact we’ve taken four points off them over the Christmas period is definitely a good result they’re a good side and they will be up there.

“It’s a shame the goal came so late. It had to take us to be 1-0 down and at half-time to get the message on board.

“If we were playing like that from the start maybe it would have been a different game. Once we got a grip on the game we have to be ruthless and put teams to bed.”

Hereford have been forced to change their back four in recent weeks with defenders Jarrod Hodgkiss, Kennedy Digie and Dan Jones all suffering injuries.

“It shows how versatile the players are, willing to listen and learn as well,”

“Haines is in there at the moment and doing a great job. As long as we’ve got communication everybody is happy to be playing wherever and we’re picking up results so we must be doing okay.

“We’ve just got to carry on as we are really, we’re picking up results, not conceding many goals. When we’re on top I think we need to get one or two (goals) and put it out of sight.

Hall was left out on the squad in pre-season and only made his first start for Hereford against AFC Fylde.

Since his return the Bulls are unbeaten in six games in all competitions and have won four of them matches.

“We’ve had a good few games unbeaten now and a good cup run as well so we’re building some nice momentum, added Hall.

“I think we’ve put in some good performances, it’s not necessarily been a performance for 90 minutes but we’re getting there.

“Since I’ve come back in we’ve all raised our game, I want to keep churning out good performances and good results which will keep me in the team.

“That’s what we’re all here to do, we all want to play. It’s a ruthless business, I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing and helping the team where I can.

“Whoever is in goal here, me and Paul (White) are both very good goalkeepers for this level and it’s just one of those.

“It wasn’t falling into place for whatever reason. It’s nobody’s fault it’s just how it goes sometimes. I know my position is always under threat and Paul (White) is a great goalkeeper for this level.

“He will keep pushing me and I will keep pushing him.”
