Big Match Review - Cheltenham 0 Hereford 1

League Two
Cheltenham Town 0-1 Hereford United
Tuesday March 2, 19:45, Whaddon Road

A first half goal from Ryan Green was enough for 10-man Hereford to end a run of three straight defeats and see off fellow strugglers Cheltenham.

The Bulls began the brighter of the two sides but both teams struggled to fashion any openings. However, the visitors did find the breakthrough after 25 minutes.

Full back Green played a neat one two with Kenny Lunt before slotting the ball past Scott Brown in the Town goal.

However, John Trewick's men soon found themselves with a numerical disadvantage after James McQuilkin was sent off for two bookable offences before the break.

The Robins pressed for a leveller in the second half and were unfortunate to be denied when Julian Alsop saw his powerful header brilliantly saved by Adam Bartlett.

The United keeper was called into action again when he was at full-stretch to tip Michael Pook's long range curler wide of the post.

The home team were unable to find a way through though and, whilst Hereford move away from the drop zone, Mark Yates's men remain deep in trouble.
