We opposed Town strongly on Monday and they conceded five at home to Leeds in the cup, that loss took a lot out of them, especially confidence wise, with morale currently at a very low ebb. They remain without the same three key players in Doig, Osman and Akinfenwa.
United boss Graham Turner is a bit of a genius in the transfer market, his loan signings last season got Hereford out of Division 2, they tried to survive this term with a more settled side, but it has not worked and Turner has returned to his many contacts in the game, to secure some eyecatching signings. The one I referrred to yesterday, was goalkeeper Matt Murray from Wolves, a good keeper is worth his weight in gold at this level and Murray is waaaaaaaay too good for this division, he started in the 3-0 win over Cheltenham and earned rave reviews. He was not eligible for the cup loss at Dagenham, but will return between the sticks today. In addition to which, Lionel Ainsworth has resigned on loan from Watford and this has got the market town buzzing. Ainsworth was key in the promotion campaign, scoring 8 in 19 starts, winning motm awards every week and earning a big money move to the Championship, which has not quite worked out. To say that he is highly regarded at Edg ar Street ,would be a major understatement and he is likely to add 500+ to the crowd today. A little quality goes a long way at the lower levels and Hereford are meeting Town at exactly the right time. United do not play again at home for three weeks and are away to high flying MK Dons next staurday, so really need these three points, I favour them strongly to get the win.
