STRIKER Miles Storey netted two first half goals which gave Hereford back-to-back league wins for the first time since October.

With the pressure mounting on manager Josh Gowling a 2-0 victories over Scarborough Athletic and Farsley Celtic at Edgar Street gave his side a welcome lift up the National League North.

Storey featured heavily in both matches but netted both goals in Hereford’s win over Farsley Celtic netting from the close range on 22 minutes and then with a driven effort three minutes later.

“As a team we’ve gone to a diamond (formation) and everybody seems to know what they’re doing, long may it continue,” said Storey.

“I’m pleased with the first one as I never score tap-ins. The second one I didn’t really think about it just hit it into the far corner. Sometimes when I’m looking to pass it I shouldn’t and should have a go myself. I’m sure with confidence I’ll keep doing that.

“I would probably say my best position is a striker in a two (up front) but not a lot of teams play that now, it’s something we’ve tried and it’s something that seems to be working.”

The Bulls will be looking for revenge over rivals Gloucester City on Saturday who beat them 3-1 earlier this season before a HFA County Cup tie against Hereford Pegasus next Tuesday night.
