Match Preview

Townsend banned for Bulls Michael Townsend's suspension provides a defensive headache for Hereford boss Jamie Pitman ahead of the visit of high-flying Swindon. Townsend was given his marching orders during the second half of Tuesday's abject 1-0 defeat at Aldershot and now starts a two-match ban, which also includes next Saturday's trip to Bradford. Benoit Dalibard (hamstring) and Joe Heath (groin) remain sidelined, while centre-back Stefan Stam could provide welcome relief if he is judged fit to return from ongoing knee problems. Striker Delroy Facey will be assessed having missed out in midweek with a chest infection, while midfielder Harry Pell (knee) remains a major doubt. Pitman made a total of four changes at the Recreation Ground which he admitted afterwards did not work, insisting the Bulls "will get annihilated" by Swindon if they perform as badly this weekend. That paves the way for possible recalls for the likes of Nicky Featherstone, James McQuilkin and Joe Colbeck. Alan Connell is fit and available for Swindon. The striker missed the 3-0 victory over Crawley in midweek with a slight hamstring injury but has since shrugged off the niggle and is now in contention for a place in manager Paolo Di Canio's matchday squad. The frontman will have to displace either Paul Benson or Billy Bodin, both of whom scored in the comfortable win over the Red Devils on Tuesday, if he is to earn himself a spot in the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Di Canio will continue to be without centre-back Aden Flint. Flint had been ruled out for the rest of the season with a groin problem, but a second opinion from a specialist suggested the defender may return for the Robins within six weeks. However, the clash with the Bulls comes far too soon for the imposing centre-half.

Match Report

Robins flying high after victory Swindon kept up their promotion challenge with a nailbiting 2-1 victory over struggling Hereford. A first-half penalty from Paul Caddis and a close range shot from Paul Benson after the break made it six npower League Two wins in a row for the Robins. Rob Purdie pulled one back for the Bulls, but Swindon held firm to keep their promotion push on track. Hereford were the first to have an attempt on goal with Joe Colbeck lashing a cross from Nathan Elder inches wide of the Swindon post. Swindon responded with Luke Rooney driving a 30-yard shot straight at Hereford goalkeeper Adam Bartlett at the right hand post. Back came the hosts with Will Evans having a goalbound shot blocked by goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and from the rebound, Jonathan Smith cleared off the line from a low drive from Byron Anthony. Swindon, however, stepped up the pressure forcing Hereford to defend in depth with goalkeeper Bartlett diving full length to punch away an inswinging corner from Matt Ritchie. The Robins eventually took the lead in the 39th minute through Caddis who scored from the penalty spot after Benson had been upended in the area. Swindon struck again in the 62nd minute when Benson scored from close range after Bartlett failed to hold onto the ball in the six yard box. Hereford, however, hit back to reduce the deficit two minutes later when Purdie lashed the ball into the roof of the net from over 20 yards.
