HEREFORD FC manager Pete Beadle knows his team face a stern test tomorrow when they entertain Slough Town.

The Buckinghamshire side are tipped to be one of the front runners this season and thrashed Gosport Borough 5-1 on Tuesday night.

Hereford go into the game with four points from their opening two games and claimed their first win of the Southern Premier League on Tuesday thanks to a late John Mills penalty against Tiverton.

"This year, the games are tougher purely because the teams have a little bit more quality and are a bit more organised," said Beadle.

"There aren't for me what you would call weak teams and Slough will be up there this year.

"It will be another tough game but one we're looking forward to.

"We've put on a good performance on Tuesday, so if we match that than hopefully we'll have the same result on Saturday."

Beadle added that, as long as his team perform well, that is all he can ask for.

"If your performance is right no one can complain and moan about why it wasn't," he said.

"If you get beat and you've played well then it's a tough one to take but you hold your hand up.

"Hopefully we'll keep improving and getting better.

"If we can have that little bit more quality in the final third, hopefully we'll have more chances and more goal-mouth action."
