Nantwich Town 0 – 1 Hereford FC
(Finn, 67)
FA TROPHY

Hereford FC edged this FA Trophy match against the Dabbers

A tap in from six yards out by Kyle Finn after Lennell John-Lewis squared a ball across the box gave the visitors the only goal in this game.

There was nothing between the two teams with both having chances, Hereford dominated the possession for the game with Nantwich attacking on the counter with their trademark style of football. 

Shots from Owens-Evans and John-Lewis tested keeper Greg Hall for the Dabbers, a free kick taken by Camwell from 20 yards out was the closest to breaking deadlock as he glanced the cross bar from the dead ball. Although it wasn’t a physical game the Dabbers somehow managed to end up with two players yellow carded in the first half. 

Nantwich’s best chance in the first half came in the last minute with new signee Curtis Miller making a run down the left but just putting the ball wide past the far post.

After the break Nantwich had a flurry of chances that sailed over the goal, along with a free kick taken by Webb for the Dabbers but Brandon Hall dropped low, parrying the ball out for a corner.

The visitors took the lead just before the 70 minute mark after the Dabbers seemed to dose off in defence leaving Finn to give the Bulls the lead.

Nantwich played some good counter attacking football and a run up the left by Saunders saw him play a ball across the face of goal alluding the Hereford defence but unfortunately alluding the Dabbers strikers also.

Nantwich threw everything at salvaging the game in the last 10 minutes and a free kick taken by Callum Saunders bounced off the cross bar in Nantwich’s best chance of the day. 

In the second half Nantwich managed to pick up another 2 yellow cards, leaving them with four men in the book after the final whistle.
