HEREFORD manager Josh Gowling says his side are starting to click after beating top-four side Brackley Town 2-0 at Edgar Street.

Debutant Michael Bakare netted the opener in the second half before another wonder strike by Chris Camwell sealed the victory.

The Bulls are now unbeaten in nine games in all competitions.


"We've done a lot of work through pre-season and at the start of the season but it's starting to click a bit now," said Gowling.

"The lads are starting to understand what it's about, what the press is about and why we do the press.

"They are buying into it and it's paying dividends.

"We looked at Brackley in analysis and they've probably been more attacking than they have been in the last few years.

"We didn't want to give their back three players time on the ball or wing backs time on the ball either.

"We had a really high press and that's probably the best that we've pressed all season so I was really pleased with that.

In the last three home league games the Bulls have beaten AFC Fylde, Kidderminster Harriers and now Brackley Town.

"When the top teams have come here we've turned up," added Gowling.

"We see ourselves as one of the big teams, but we take it game by game and today first and foremost what they are based on is structure and being solid.

"So we wanted to break that will with our press. With that press we wanted to run over them basically and I think for large portions of the game we did that.

"I wasn't happy with us in possession and I thought we turned over the ball a bit too much.

"It's not the poorest we've been on the ball but we could have secure the ball and hurt them in key areas."
