Morecambe 0-1 Hereford

Hereford boosted their League Two survival hopes with a hard-fought victory over Morecambe.

Jordan Burrow missed a golden opportunity for the hosts early on when he rounded Bulls keeper Dave Cornell but failed to find the target.

Lyle Taylor's cool left-footed volley beat Barry Roche from eight yards out to give Richard O'Kelly his first win as Hereford boss.

Roche did well to deny Taylor's cheeky effort and a Tom Barkhuizen strike.


Hereford manager Richard O'Kelly told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"In the first half I thought we played really well and created some good opportunities.

"Then, in the second half it was backs to the wall, throwing your body in front of things and getting a fair of luck, I must say, but sometimes if you work hard you get that.

"I have only been here six days but the first thing (I noticed) when I came through the door was that there was a good team spirit.

"That's one of the things that helps any side in this situation as if you want to call yourself a team you have got to have a good work ethic and team spirit and they had that in abundance in the second half."
