Away fans without tickets for a key relegation football game in Hereford have been warned by police they will "be dealt with robustly" if they try to get into the home end.

West Mercia Police said all away tickets for the Hereford United versus Plymouth Argyle game are sold out.

Acting Ch Insp Martin Taylor said: "Plymouth fans should not travel to Hereford without a valid match ticket."

The game on Good Friday kicks off at 15:00 BST.

Police said the game is likely to attract one of the biggest crowds of the season to Hereford United's Edgar Street ground.

Mr Taylor said: "It goes without saying that we simply cannot allow away fans to enter the home sections at Edgar Street and any attempting to do this can expect to be dealt with robustly."

He said there have been "very few problems" at Edgar Street this season and police aim to ensure that Friday's game is "trouble free".

Hereford United are currently bottom of the npower League Two with Plymouth Argyle three places above them.
