Hereford boss Jamie Pitman may well keep faith with an unchanged XI for what is a crucial relegation six-pointer at home to fellow strugglers Stockport.

With Ryan Green receiving a red card in last Saturday`s FA Cup second-round win over Lincoln, Pitman was forced into one change for Tuesday`s impressive 1-0 third-round triumph at Wycombe as the Bulls progressed through two rounds in four days.

And with Green serving the second game of his two-match ban against the Hatters, Pitman could opt to stick with a winning formula as his side look to transfer their cup form into league points.

Midfielder Robert Purdie (hamstring) and striker Sean Canham (knee) returned to the bench in midweek and should be in the matchday 18 again.

But defender Dominik Werling (knee), goalkeeper Dan Connor and defender Ryan Valentine (both hip) remain unavailable.

A fourth successive victory for Hereford could take them out of the drop zone and within two points of fourth-bottom Stockport who have played three games more.

Stockport caretaker boss Peter Ward is hoping to be able to call on striker Wes Fletcher.

The rookie frontman is on loan from Burnley and is set to be passed fit for the final game of his three-month spell at Edgeley Park.

Ward has no major injury concerns following Tuesday's thriller at home to Rotherham, when his side blew a 3-1 lead with five minutes to go to draw 3-3.

Ward is taking the positives from his side's display and believes there were plenty of encouraging signs.

He said: "It was an excellent team performance, but it's only one performance.

"There's still 21 league games to go so we just need to try and build on this now."
