HEREFORD captain Jared Hodgkiss hopes the side can settle down after a difficult start on and off the pitch for the Bulls.

The Bulls are without a win in five league games and saw Saturday's trip to York City postponed due to a Covid-19 scare within the Bulls camp.


“It’s difficult at the moment a few things off the pitch have not been great,” said Hodgkiss.

“Getting people in at the right time has been difficult for the gaffer and the players getting the camaraderie and chemistry together.

“Hopefully that will settle down and we’ll be able to kick on.”

The Bulls are still looking for their first competitive win of the season going into their FA Cup game at Lymington.

Hodgkiss says his side have been unlucky at times during their run of three defeat and two draws in their opening five games.

"I know you get what you deserve really in football but I do think we haven't had the rub of the green," added Hodgkiss.

"It's been a tough start but there are still nearly 40 games left so there's a lot of time left yet.

"We'll start judging it after 10 or 15 games, personally that's what I do as a player with my own performance and the team so we've got a few games left yet before we start judging things.

"We're still confident in the players we've got here, we are still gelling and stuff.
"One win will be massive for us but we'll keep sticking to the process and keep working hard every day that we train and results will turn."

The Bulls lost centre half Jamie Grimes in the summer and Hodgkiss admits that the side have missed his presence. "Hopefully we can rectify that soon with a signing or two," he added.
