Match Preview

Battle of the cattle at Edgar Street Hereford trio Michael Townsend, Dan Connor and Ryan Valentine are all in the treatment room ahead of the visit of local rivals Oxford. Defender Townsend (knock) and goalkeeper Connor (hip) both missed last weekend`s disappointing 3-0 defeat at Burton and are likely to sit out once again. Full-back Valentine did feature at the Pirelli Stadium but has been forced to miss training this week due to a sickness bug and is facing a race against time to prove his fitness. Deadline-day signing Dominic Werling could be handed a start in defence having only made the bench against Albion, while manager Simon Davey must also decide whether to keep faith with Amadou Rabihou and Mathieu Manset in attack with the goal-shy Bulls having scored just once this season. It remains to be seen which formation Davey will opt to go with as he looks to end a run of three successive defeats, having used both 3-5-2 and 4-4-2 at Burton but having favoured a 4-3-3 system for the majority of this term. Central defender Jake Wright has been passed fit for Oxford. Wright was substituted in United's 4-0 thrashing of Morecambe last weekend after complaining of a stiff back but boss Chris Wilder revealed the former Brighton man was only brought off as a precaution. Wilder is expected to name an unchanged side after such an impressive performance against the Shrimps, with skipper James Constable partnering recent signing Tom Craddock in attack once again. Constable scored a hat-trick against Sammy McIlroy's side in what was Oxford's first League Two victory of the season. Two players who will definitely play no part against the Bulls are Rhys Day and Damian Batt, who are still recovering from knee and ankle problems respectively.

Match Report

U's pile misery on Bulls Oxford gained their second league win of the season when they condemned Hereford to their fourth consecutive defeat in League Two. A goal in each half from James Constable and Tom Craddock clinched Oxford's victory. Hereford have now gone over 10 hours without scoring since winning at Crewe on the opening day of the season. Oxford were the more positive side in the early stages with Craddock heading a cross from Constable straight at goalkeeper Adam Bartlett. Hereford responded with Joe Colbeck drilling the ball past the Oxford far post before Josh Payne lashed a 30-yard drive over the Bulls' bar at the other end. Bartlett also saved a powerful 25-yard drive from Asa Hall as Oxford piled on the pressure and he made three more saves to deny Constable before the striker put Oxford in front in the 35th minute. Matt Green broke clear on the right before releasing the ball to Constable, who beat Bartlett from close range at the second attempt. After the break Craddock went close to increasing Oxford's lead when he turned the ball past the Hereford post from a corner by Ben Purkiss. Craddock however clinched Oxford's victory in the 65th minute when he lashed a 15-yard shot into the roof of the Hereford net.
