Hereford will make a statement on Friday regarding the vacant managerial position at Edgar Street when they are expected to announce the new man in charge.

The Bulls board met on Wednesday to discuss the ongoing search to replace Simon Davey, who was sacked three-and-a-half weeks ago as a result of the club's dismal start to the season.

Physio and former midfielder Jamie Pitman was placed in temporary charge and has since done a sterling job, making him one of the leading contenders for the post.

A 1-1 draw against then-leaders Port Vale, a stunning 4-3 comeback win at Northampton and another 1-1 draw at home to Accrington led to Hereford fans singing his name last weekend.

Chairman David Keyte is known to have interviewed a number of other unnamed candidates, with the likes of Dave Penney, Jim Harvey and Steve Guinan linked to the vacancy.
