HEREFORD midfielder Maziar Kouhyar is on international duty and will amongst those missing for the Bulls’ trip to Guiseley on Saturday.

The 24-year-old is part of the Afghanistan squad for their friendly against Indonesia on Tuesday night with the game being played in Turkey, also missing the Blyth home match.

Currently on the Bulls' injury list are Harry Pinchard, George Forsyth and goalkeeper Nykah Liburd-Hines and they will also miss Saturday’s game.


Talking about Pinchard’s injury, Hereford manager Josh Gowling said: “He has had a groin issue.

“Someone like Harry who has not played a lot of football in the last few years and hasn’t played any men’s football coming in and playing back-to-back games you have breakdowns.

“He needs to condition his body better and we need to get him fitter so he doesn’t breakdown. At the moment he’s got a groin issue that has been niggling him.

“We’re just making sure he’s right before we really enter him back into the team.”

Meanwhile, Forsyth was suffered an injury in Hereford’s 3-3 draw at Alfreton last month.

“It’s pleasing as when you see a player on crutches and not walking very well you worry,” said Gowling.

“Forsyth is moving a bit better and his swelling has gone down which is pleasing. Ankle ligaments are not nice, but it’s probably better than we thought it was going to be so we’re hoping it’s three or four weeks rather than eight.”

Meanwhile, James Vincent returned to training on Thursday after being out for three weeks.
