PREVIEW | Bulls Battle

Southport head back on the road this weekend as they travel to Edgar Street to face Hereford.

Liam Watson’s side will be looking to build on victory in their last away game at Gloucester City a fortnight ago.

A 3-3 draw against bottom side Bradford (Park Avenue) meant the Port were unable make it two wins in a row and as they look to convert their improved performances into a good run of form.

Meanwhile, this weekend’s opponents, Hereford, are on a poor run of their own, with only one victory in 16 matches, which includes six draws and nine defeats.

That win came on New Year’s Day, with a penalty and an own goal giving them a 2-1 victory against Kidderminster Harriers.

The biggest loss of that run came away to Altrincham, as they suffered a 5-1 bruising at Moss Lane.

Six of Hereford’s seven wins this season came in the first two months of the campaign, when they started quite well.

Former manager, Russell Slade, left the role by mutual consent last month with the club in 17th place in the Vanarama National League North table, with Josh Gowling now at the helm in an interim role.

When Hereford visited the Pure Stadium earlier on this season, it was the Port who came out on top.

Zehn Mohammed, David Morgan and Devarn Green were all on the scoresheet in a 3-2 victory for Watson’s side.

Reece Styche was one of the men on target for the Bulls, and despite not getting too many more this season, he is one to watch if he can replicate his form from the last campaign where he bagged 15 goals.

With Hereford struggling at the moment, the trip to Edgar Street is another chance for the Port to get the second part of their season back up and running.
