Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon admitted his side did not deserve to take anything from the game after Hereford pulled off a shock 2-1 win.
Joe Colbeck added to Stuart Fleetwood's early effort as the Bulls won for the first time in eight league games to ensure Luke Guttridge`s last-minute goal proved worthless.
Dillon said: "We just did not get going and I have to take responsibility for sending that team out there.
"We got caught by a sucker punch late on but to be honest we did not deserve anything from the game.
"It was a very poor game overall and if I had paid to watch that I would not have been happy. It was not the type of football I want to see us play and I was not happy with that.
"Sure we have lost but there are still 20-odd games to go and plenty of time for us to turn things around. I think we overachieved last year and the club has been used to success since 1996, but people need to be realistic.`
