HEREFORD FC have seen their game against Kidderminster Harriers postponed.

UPDATED STORY: Hereford FC derby game postponed after new Covid cases

The Bulls players had their last two games postponed due to Covid-19 cases and have had two more cases in their squad in the last few days.

Manager Josh Gowling has been self-isolating and his side have not trained together for over a week.

“With the youth team lads we have eight registered,” said Gowling.

“The league don’t see them as youth team players but see them as players. Are they ready to jump into the first team yet? No they’re probably not.

“What time we are able to put out on Sunday at the moment I don’t know. We’ve had a few more cases today (Thursday) and yesterday.

“We’ve not trained yet and have got a game on Sunday. As far as I’m aware the game is going ahead. We haven’t actually been lifted to play yet. I know the club are currently talking to the league so we’ll see where that goes.

“As far as I’m aware the game is going ahead. There are areas of the pitch at the moment where we won’t have many players.

“We might have to look at changing formation. But we’re adaptable and have got a hungry group. We’ve got a group full of confidence and no matter what team we put out we’ll be fighting tooth and nail to get a result.

“The problem is when you have Covid in the group any lads who are not vaccinated have to isolate and are not allowed out.

“We’ve got quite a few cases in the camp anyway so we’ve probably got the whole squad that have not been able to go out, mix or do any work.

“My concern going into Sunday is worry that lads that have had Covid, not trained so much and then going into a really competitive game.

“We have to fulfil the fixture but ideally we’d be given another week to recover and play games.”
