DARA O'Shea will miss Hereford's next two league games after being sent off against Stratford Town on Tuesday night.

The Irish defender will miss next Tuesday's game at Gosport Borough and the Dorchester Town tie the following Saturday.

O'Shea was sent off in the 62nd minute of Hereford's 2-1 win for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity. 

The 18-year-old said he will learn from his mistake.

"I haven't played in two or three weeks but I'll learn from that and will go again," said O'Shea.

"The ref didn't take into the account the pitch and I made the tackle.

"I wasn't the last man, but the ref thought it was a bad tackle.

"But the lads did excellently down to 10 men and dug in.

"It was a massive win because some teams didn't play so it puts us in a really good position.

"I always say the Tuesday night games are the most important games because they can make or break your season.

"Even going down to 10 men, the character and determination from the lads to dig out the win was quality."

O'Shea will stay with Hereford until the end of the season after having his loan spell extended.

"I'm really happy extending my loan and get as many games as possible," added O'Shea.

"I think it was always going to happen, it was just a case of getting it done.

"I love playing at this club, the lads are quality and everyone buys into what is happening here.

"I'm playing men's football and I was basically waiting for West Brom to give me the go ahead to come back and re-sign."
