HEREFORD manager Josh Gowling was disappointed that his side did not heed the warning signs of two goals being disallowed at Bradford (Park Avenue) in their 1-1 draw in Yorkshire.

Luke Rawson saw two first half efforts disallowed the first for off-side and second for a foul in the build-up for the goal before George Forsyth rifled home the opener at the opposite end.

Despite Hereford controlling the second half Jake Hibbs earned the hosts a point with eight minutes remaining sliding home a Jordan Windass cross.

“I think they were off-side but the way they got through I was not happy with,” said Gowling talking to Keith Hall after the 1-1 draw.

“If you look at their goal it was poor. For me if somebody gets the ball in a good area you’ve got to stop them.

“That’s how I played. I said to the lads at half-time they were the two warning signs as they got through too easy by people just switching off and not doing their job.

“Their goal he has gone past two or three people comfortably. He has picked it up on the halfway line and driven with no real pressure that was the disappointing thing.

“We have worked on crosses in the six-yard area and we didn’t get in quick enough.”

The visitors thought they had a 13th minute lead when Windass found Rawson inside the box but he was judged to have been off-side inside the box.

Rawson had the ball in the net again four minutes later but saw his effort disallowed again for a foul on Luke Haines in the process.

Skipper Luca Havern was next to go close for the visitors nodding wide from a corner.

However, it was the Bulls who took a 26th minute lead with a strike from George Forsyth who found the top corner from a Miles Storey cross.

Just seconds later Rawson ran through on goal but his chipped effort was tipped over by Brandon Hall.

Moments before the break Ryan McLean had golden chance to double Hereford's lead but nodded wide unmarked inside the box from Maziar Kouhyar's corner.

Forsyth went close again moments before the break rifling just wide after trying his luck again from outside the box.

Kouhyar opened up the Bradford defence on 67 minutes but his through ball skimmed off the wet 4G surface and skipped away from debutant Zeli Ismail and the chance was gone.

Miles Storey was pushing for a second Hereford goal and shrugged off a defender before sending his effort inches wide.

However, with eight minutes remaining Bradford struck their equaliser with Windass sending a searching ball into the box which was slid home by Hobbs at the back post.

After his first half exploits Rawson had a chance to win the tie for his side late on but saw his effort fly across the face of goal and wide.

“I don’t think we controlled the game well enough but if you look at the opportunities in the game opportunity wise we should have won the game,” added Gowling.

“We should have been more ruthless in the first and second half. In the second half Maziar (Kouhyar) had a simple three on one and it’s a simple pass in but we don’t do it, that’s the frustrating thing.

“We worked on switching play today and I think we did that at times but as soon as the all picked up off the surface it just went out of play.

“I don’t think we dealt with the 4G (pitch) as well as we could have. They (Bradford) were good, they were a decent side and better than Farsley (Celtic).

“They put us under a lot of pressure.
