Braintree Town 0-2 Hereford

Hereford extended their unbeaten league run to six games with an away victory at Braintree Town.

The visitors nearly went in front early on, but Chris Sharp's effort from 12-yards was well saved by Braintree goalkeeper Nathan McDonald.

The Bulls good start was rewarded when Ryan Bowman combined with Sharp, who slotted home from inside the area.

Marley Watkins added Hereford's second and secured the points when his 20-yard volley found the bottom corner.


Braintree Town manager Alan Devonshire told BBC Essex:

"First-half I don't think we played that well, second-half we played a lot, lot better and I felt we deserved something out of the game.

"We didn't get a lot of luck in front of goal. We've had a few chances, we've hit the bar, I think if we'd have got one we might have got another one.

"Hereford worked really hard, they put bodies on the line and defended really well. Credit to them."
