League Two strugglers Hereford United have bolstered their firepower by bringing back teenage Birmingham City striker Jake Jervis on a month's loan.The 6ft 3in 19-year-old finished last season on loan with the Bulls, hitting two goals in five starts. [LNB]And he has been out on loan again this season, spending the first half of the campaign with Notts County, a level higher in League One. [LNB]But he has not found the net in 14 appearances, mostly from the bench. [LNB]Jervis originally signed for Notts until 4 January, and there was an option to extend his stay at Meadow Lane until the end of the season. [LNB]But Notts chose to send him back, allowing Blues to loan him out again. [LNB]He rejoins a Hereford side now brimming with confidence after going unbeaten since the turn of the year. [LNB]The Bulls are now off the bottom of the league, only a point from safety, and into the fourth round of the FA Cup next Saturday, after winning their last four matches. [LNB]Jervis has made just one substitute appearance for Blues, playing the final 11 minutes in last season's 2-1 FA Cup win at Everton.
