HEREFORD FC have started loanee left-back Lewis Butroid against Woking despite him being recalled by Scunthorpe United.

Butroid played in Hereford's quarter-final win at Aldershot but will miss today's game against Woking after being recalled by his parent club.

Hereford manager had said the defender had been recalled but he starts against Woking.


“It’s looking like they (Scunthorpe) have picked up an injury in their camp, said Hereford manager Josh Gowling.

“We brought Lewis (Butroid) in to replace Callum (Rowe) who has had his knee injury. He’s (Rowe) is not really back where we need him to be yet.

“The left-back spot has been that problem all season for us and it’s come up again. It will probably be (Ryan) Lloyd who to be fair has done very well out there.

“We’ll roll with it. I think adversity brings out the best in us and this is another instance with not playing games where it’s adversity that we’ve got to overcome.

“Apart from that we’re good to go.”
