Braintree Town 1-1 Hereford United

Hereford ended a five-match losing run in the Conference Premier as they shared the spoils at Braintree.

Dan Holman gave Braintree the lead, firing home after Alan Massey's shot had been blocked.

The advantage lasted just two minutes as Dan Walker pulled the Bulls level with a well-taken right-footed finish.

Holman spurned an opening from 12 yards before Sean Marks lobbed over, while Bernard Mensah forced a parried save from Hereford's Daniel Lloyd-Weston.
