Hereford boss Jamie Pitman was quick to pay tribute to Wycombe goalkeeper Nikki Bull following the 0-0 draw at Edgar Street.

The 29-year-old shot-stopper produced a string of fine saves to earn his side a point, denying Bulls midfielder Joe Colbeck and striker Stuart Fleetwood twice.

Pitman said: "We had the better of the chances and their keeper has pulled off two not just very good but world-class saves."

He added: "The shot from Ryan Green was at a nice height for the keeper but it looked as if it was flying in and it was a great save.

"You have to give him credit for that, it was a tremendous instinctive save."


Chairboys boss Garry Waddock was also pleased with another important point.

He said: "It was a clean sheet and a point away from home so you can't really argue with that.

"We wanted all three but we'll certainly settle for one.

"The players kept working hard and they showed a lot of commitment and effort but Hereford are a good side.

"Everybody wants to win every game but Hereford are a good side and they are not going to lie down and die. They needed the points as well."
