Match Preview

Bulls without skipper Kovacs Hereford will be without suspended skipper Janos Kovacs when they come up against Northampton at Edgar Street. The centre-back was shown a second yellow card for bringing down Calvin Zola nine minutes into the second half of Saturday`s goalless draw against Burton and now serves a one-match ban. Kovacs is likely to be replaced by like-for-like replacement Michael Townsend, who returned to the bench at the weekend having served a one-match suspension of his own. Otherwise, manager Jamie Pitman is likely to keep changes, if any, to a minimum having named the same XI on Saturday as the one which saw off Cheltenham 3-0. Victory over the Cobblers, who have drawn their previous four matches, could put Hereford eight points clear of the drop zone after their point against Burton provided them with a bit more breathing space at the bottom. Pitman said: "If we win the Northampton game we get four points from these two games and that`s a good return, what we have to do is make sure we try to do that." Northampton will be without their first-choice strikeforce. January signing Shaun Harrad will serve the first game of a three-match ban following his red card against Aldershot on Saturday, while Leon McKenzie is a doubt. McKenzie - who scored a hat-trick when the Bulls won 4-3 at Sixfields earlier this season - has been plagued by knee and thigh injuries all season and struggles to play twice in four days. Manager Ian Sampson said: "Leon is a concern and I'd only rate him about 50/50. I'm sure he will want to play but I need to make sure that he is at the same level that he was at the start of this run of games and this game might be one too many for him. "Shaun Harrad came in and apologised to me after the game for his red card and he will be dealt with accordingly. I don't know whether it was frustration or not but he shouldn't have done it. The intent was there and we've now got to plan without him for the next three games." Midfielder Abdul Osman will sit out as he completes a three-match ban and striker Tadhg Purcell is still sidelined with the serious knee injury that ended his season in August.

Match Report

All-square at Edgar Street Hereford and Northampton battled out a 1-1 draw at Edgar Street as Waide Fairhurst cancelled out Andy Holt's opener. Hereford, with only two home wins this season, looked the more likely side to score in a poor first half and Stuart Fleetwood should have scored after 21 minutes when he drilled his shot at Chris Dunn and then put the rebound wide with Fairhurst better placed. The hosts were punished for some defensive slackness just over a minute into the second period when Kevin Thornton drove a corner into the area and Holt rose highest at the near post to head in. Hereford had a good chance to level when Kenny Lunt sent Fleetwood away to drill in a shot which Dunn had to dive to save. But the Bulls were rewarded for their pressure on 68 minutes when Fairhurst powered in at the near post to thump home a Ryan Green cross. Cobblers centre-back Dean Beckwith came close to glory against his former club when he headed a Thornton corner against an upright.
