HEREFORD manager Josh Gowling says his side will be able to be ‘free’ at Bromley with the weight of expectation on their hosts.

The Bulls are famed for their FA Cup exploits and have another upset opportunity on Saturday when they head to National League side Bromley.

The Kent hosts sit fifth in the league above the Bulls and have won seven out of their 13 league games. However, they face an in-form Hereford side who are unbeaten in five games winning four of them.

The winners of Saturday’s FA Cup tie will earn a place in the first round of the competition next month.

“If you look at our FA Trophy run we played some National League sides and we got to the final after beating two of them,” said manager Josh Gowling.

“We’ll always put a good shift in and work hard. They (Bromley) are a good side, a strong side and it’s a different surface to what we’re used to play on the 4G but we’ll go there and the pressure is on them not us.

“We can be free and get the result.”

 Despite having a host of injuries to his squad in recent weeks the Bulls go into the game full of confidence with four wins from their last five in all competition.

“We seem to change all the time,” added Gowling.

“Credit to the lads, when we played Banbury and Gloucester confidence was low, we weren’t playing well or winning games.

“To go from there to five games unbeaten winning four and drawing one is an absolute credit to the boys in there because they have put an absolute shift in.

“They’ve put things right and their attitude has been absolutely outstanding. We’ve got to go for the cup next week and see what bodies we’ve got left.

“One of my big things is that you want a team of players that will work for each other and put a shift in.

“We played Jack (Evans) today (at Boston United) who has been ill so we had to bring him off midway through the first half because he couldn’t breath to be honest, especially with the way we wanted to press.

“(Thierry) Latty-Fairweather gave it a go today Ryan (Lloyd) is struggling as well and has got through the game.

“The lads want to play for me, for the club and for each other.”
