HEREFORD manager Paul Caddis wants striker Jason Cowley to be more selfish after the marksman scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Swindon Town.

The Bulls were in firm control against a young Swindon side include five first team names with Cowley scoring in each half.

“Out of possession I thought we were really good, our shape was excellent and we have one half chance in the first half,” said a delighted Caddis after the dominant display.

“The lads worked extremely hard out of possession. The most pleasing thing for me was the character after a poor performance on Saturday.

“We probably should have had more goals to be honest, that’s with me being ruthless. Jason (Cowley) is everything this club optimises, he works hard and he’s full of character.

“He can be more selfish, in the box a few times he was trying to cut it back. I don’t want my strikers to try and pass it, I want them to put the ball in the back of the net.

“He scored 29 goals in 40 games last year and that’s his job.”

Looking to revenge their defeat at Bromsgrove the Bulls started brightly with Jordan Cranston sending his dipping effort just over in the opening minutes.

The Bulls had a ninth minute when Curtis Pond’s long kick skidding its way through to Jason Cowley who dispatched his effort past the goalkeeper.

Paul Caddis side were having joy against their young visitors and Aurio Teixeira was next to try his luck at goal curling his effort just over the bar.

Cowley then turned provider on 31 minutes finding Stanley Anaebonam free inside the box who curled his effort past the goalkeeper and just wide of the post.

Swindon’s only chance of the first half came on 34 minutes when Tomi Adeloye was played in on goal and forced goalkeeper Curtis Pond to save his effort.

As the first half closed Cowley had two further chances firstly flicking an Adam Rooney cross wide and then battling for the ball and forcing Conor Brann into a flying save.

Former Stourbridge man Cowley continued to be a threat in the second half and found the run of trialist Connor Stanley who had his effort saved.

Hereford were firmly in control and completed their win with 13 minutes remaining as Adam Livingstone’s cross was placed onto the head of Cowley for his second goal.

“I’ve said to the lads to trust our shape because if you’ve got a solid shape then players will start running onto you rather than you having to find people,” added Caddis.
