  • PRE-MATCH
  • HEREFORD face Buxton today in their first of the final five National League North fixtures.

  • The Bulls are in 12th position and five points outside the top seven play-off positions.
  • With three of the last five games remaining games being away a win today is a must to maintain an outside play-off chance.
  • Meanwhile, today's visitors sit in 14th position and seven points behind Hereford.
  • After Good Friday's trip to Banbury was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch the Bulls are penned to play the fixture on Wednesday (yes in two days' time).
