HEREFORD will host Torquay United in the FA Trophy fourth round next month.

The Bulls have been drawn at home in the sixth consecutive cup game this season. They will host former Football League side Torquay, who now play in the National League South - the same level as Hereford.

Both sides have won two FA Trophy matches to get to this stage and they will meet at Edgar Street on Saturday, January 13.

The winner of the fourth-round tie will receive £5,250 in prize money and a place in the fifth round.

Hereford booked their place in the next round with a 1-0 victory over South Park on Saturday, with Adam Rooney netting the winning goal.

“It was all about getting into the next round and that’s 19 teams from the National League North out of the competition now,” said Hereford manager Paul Caddis after beating South Park.

“First and foremost we want to be as high as we possibly can in the league, but this is a great opportunity, we’re now four wins away getting from Wembley.

“It’s my first job as manager, I want to manage at Wembley and the players want to play there so we take it seriously.

“We could potentially come up against a National League team who would be strong, but nobody will enjoy coming here. We’re really strong at home and have had the luck of the draw in the last few rounds.

“We’ll give the competition the respect it deserves.”

Hereford return to National League North action this weekend when they visit basement side Bishop’s Stortford.

They could have Scunthorpe United loanee Tom Pugh amongst their ranks after the midfielder had his loan spell extended for another month.
