Taylor hoping for victory amid all the doubts

Hereford United go into today's match at Dorchester with huge uncertainty hanging over them following the decision by creditors to reject a proposed Company Voluntary Agreement.

It means the club is likely to be wound up at it's next court appearance on September 1 unless the creditors can be paid by that date.

On the field, Bulls boss Jon Taylor is urging his players to make it third time lucky when they take on Dorchester at the Abbey Stadium today.

Taylor's battling squad fought back to claim a draw in stoppage-time against Slough earlier in the week – and the Hereford chief is expecting them to chalk up their first victory in the Southern League Premier Division.

"It was a case of never say die against Slough. I had to make a couple of substitutions to try to inspire the players," said Taylor.

"Sometimes it comes off but sometimes it doesn't, however, it was a fine finish from Nathaniel Lewars just before the end of the 90 minutes.

"They have a very good team spirit and are very fit, but you must remember the whole squad has only been together for some eight or nine weeks.

"Now we have to go out and get the three points which is top of my agenda – we have worked very hard in both our opening games and I thought we could have got something against St Neots.

"But if you're not putting your chances away, you're not going to win games, it is as simple as that.

"We created chances against Slough, but in the front of goal we need to be more composed and more clinical.

"One of my major points is that I am proud of all my players, as they have been party to all the goings-on outside the club and off the pitch."
