This was possibly the worst home performance of the season, as City just didn't get going at all against a Hereford side who are seeking at least a play-off place

City tell behind after just 15 minutes when Steve White lashed the ball homs from close range after the defence had a couple of chances to clear White netted again in the second tut when a 65th minute corner fell to him on the angle of the penalty arta and he drove a low shot into the corner of the net.  It was a strangely subdued performance by the team, and even the usual vociferous Cowshed chor were quet Perhaps the moming Nick-off had something to do with it? City did show a lime more attacking flair in the second half, with John Sharpe playing his best match at the Park since signing for the Grecians The Hereford kreper had an easy munch however, and was not unduly troubled throughout the 90 minutes. It was all very disappointing for the Easter morning crowd apart from the traveling Hereford fans .
