HEREFORD have brought in a second goalkeeper on loan after Cian Tyler was called up Wales international duty.

Coventry City loanee Tyler signed for a month on loan playing at Alfreton and Brackley Town before his parent club prevented him playing in Saturday’s FA Cup in fear of him being cup tied for their matches.

That forced Hereford to bring in 18-year-old goalkeeper Harvey Wiles-Richards on loan from Bristol City for their cup match against Bromsgrove Sporting.

“Brad (Wade) has had his injury and we brought Cian (Tyler) in to play,” said Hereford boss Josh Gowling.

“Cian Tyler is away on international duty now and has been called up with the Wales under-21 team. We knew that last week. When we signed him on loan he didn’t have the call-up.

“Coventry didn’t let him play today (in the FA Cup) and now he’s got called up next week which nobody could foresee. We’ve looked at it and thought that he’s going to miss a couple of games and we’ve had to get another goalkeeper in.

Wiles-Richards is a product of the Bath City college programme and has played in the National League South previously.

He had a successful Bulls debut on Saturday keeping a clean sheet in their 1-0 victory.

“We’ve brought Harvey in and I thought he was excellent,” added Gowling.

“He didn’t have a lot to do but he was called upon at the end there and made an absolute tremendous save which gets us the win.

“He kicks it an absolute mile so we expect him to be here a bit longer and to start the next game.”

Hereford were without full-back Jack Evans in their FA Cup victory after the defender rolled his ankle before scoring at Brackley Town on Tuesday night.

“In the Brackley game he went into a tackle and rolled his ankle,” added Gowling.

“He did it early on in the game in a tackle, got through it. Sometimes with injuries your adrenaline gets you through it and once it settles down you start to feel aches and pains and the swelling comes.

“He came into training on Thursday and his ankle was massive, it puffed up. For us it’s not risking it as ankle injuries aren’t great.

“It’s settled down a lot today (Saturday) and he’s been in working with Aaron the physio.”
