Here­ford slump in hor­ror dis­play

HERE­FORD 0 ASH­TON UNITED 2

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Richard Prime

FIRST-HALF goals from Matthew Re­gan and Matthew Chad­wick gave Ash­ton a wel­come sec­ond vic­tory of the sea­son.

But Here­ford, who sacked boss Pete Beadle in mid­week, looked in­creas­ingly rud­der­less.

Ash­ton forced their first cor­ner on 17 min­utes and it brought the first goal.

Chad­wick swung in the flag-kick and skip­per Re­gan soared in un­chal­lenged to net.

Four min­utes later came a sec­ond cor­ner and a sec­ond goal.

Chad­wick picked the ball up on the right af­ter it was half­cleared to him and he cut in to drive a shot into the bot­tom cor­ner.

Jor­don Sangha, on loan from Walsall, had a glo­ri­ous chance to add a third five min­utes be­fore the break but failed to con­trol a cross from sub­sti­tute Bradley Jackson.

Green found his luck was out a minute later when he pow­ered a header against the bar.

But it was Ash­ton, who forced nine cor­ners to their hosts’ two, who looked more likely to score again in what was a tight game.

Only fine saves by Martin Horsell from Sangha and Craig Hob­son pre­vented an even more em­phatic de­feat for the home side.

STAR MAN: Matt Chad­wick (Ash­ton United) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
