HEREFORD manager Josh Gowling is convinced that his team will move out of the bottom two league places.

The Bulls host third placed Chorley looking for just a second league win of the season.

Gowling is confident that his side will start moving up the league table.


"Where we are right now we're not going to end the season," said Gowling.

"That's a fact. Not a chance. I feel I've been a pretty successful manager in my 18 months here.

"We were pushing the play-offs last year and got to a Wembley final and got to the fourth round qualifying in the FA Cup - more than we've done in the last four years.

"I've got belief in the squad and I think technically moving forward, going forward we are better than we were last year.

"We've probably missed two centre-halves and a number nine earlier in the season which has cost us.

"Once things click into place we will go on a run without a doubt.

"I would say stick together, be patient and when we start picking up results we will really go on a run.

"We will play attractive football and get results. It will be a tough test on Saturday, they are third in the league and 10 games unbeaten.

"I back my lads, we are playing well, the lads are in good spirits and I'm in good spirits.

"We want to roll our sleeves up and really start climbing up that table, the reality is we're 11 points off the play-offs."

Hereford have not played a league game at Edgar Street since but now have four of their five league games in November at home including the visits of Blyth Spartans, Chester and Kettering Town.

"We've got the teams in and around us in the next few games so, you can't lose to the teams around you," added Gowling.

"That's the reality so we've got to start picking up points there."
