Bulls pick up away win: Match Review

Published Add your comment

New boy Wade Fairhurst grabbed two goals on his debut to help a resurgent Hereford pull further clear of the relegation zone with a 3-0 win at Cheltenham.

The striker, on loan from Doncaster, gave the Bulls a 23rd-minute lead with a crisp finish in off the post following a neat lay off by Stuart Fleetwood.

Hereford doubled their advantage in the 51st minute when defender Janos Kovacs climbed to head a Kenny Lunt free kick into an empty net with keeper Scott Brown flailing helplessly in midair.

Fairhurst added a third in the last minute with a clinical finish from eight yards curled into the far corner.

The Robins had the best early chance when keeper Adam Bartlett kept out a near-post header from Wes Thomas.

Harry Pell impressed for the Bulls and drew a flying save from Scott Brown while the midfielder went even closer with a right foot shot that hit the post.

At the other end Wes Thomas spurned a chance from six yards while shortly after Bartlett could only manage to beat out a fiercely struck drive from Marlon Pack.

Bulls midfielder Joe Colbeck also tested Scott Brown late on with a stinging shot from 25 yards.
