Moors bounce back against Bulls
SPENNYMOOR Town bounced back from last weekend’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Witton Albion with an impressive win at 10-man Hereford FC.
The Bulls started the brighter of the two sides at Edgar Street but it was the Moors that took the lead against the run of play midway through the first half.
Glen Taylor’s header found Mark Anderson and the midfielder smashed a powerful effort past the hosts’ keeper Martin Horsell.
Hereford were reduced to 10 men just a minute later as Callum Sainty was dismissed for a strong challenge on Rob Ramshaw.
That gave the Moors the upper hand and they doubled their lead on the brink of half-time when Taylor turned from creator to goalscorer by calmly rolling the ball beyond the advancing Horsell after good work from Stephen Brogan.
The dominance continued after half-time and substitute Andrew Johnson and Shaun Tuton came close to extending the lead to three in the opening 15 minutes.
The hosts were offering little as the Moors were happy to keep possession, much to the delight of the impressive travelling support.
And they were rewarded with a third goal on 86 minutes.
Johnson continued to threaten the Bulls defence and his low cross from the left found substitute Adam Boyes, who made no mistake from close range and rounded off a fine day of work by the Moors.
The three points move Jason Ainsley’s men up to fourth in the National League North table and secured their third league win in a row.
