Where was Jordan King?
Yesterday's substitute bench only contained one defender, Dean Craven, and three forwards, David Brown, Daniel Carey-Bertram and surprisingly perhaps Nick Harrhy. Jordan King, not reported as injured, was left off.
Luckily there were no problems with injuries during the game, but it was a reminder to supporters than Hereford United appear to be short of a defender/midfielder.
With the uncertainty about a return for Mkandawire to West Bromwich and Tretton out until well into the New Year, it looks increasingly likely that Graham Turner will bring in another player shortly.
The manager will also have on his mind that several players are close to five bookings. Turner will not want an under-strength team to face Exeter in the Xmas/New Year games. If a player on four bookings gets another against Tamworth on December 13th he would miss the New Year Day's game.
With no game for a fortnight Turner and O'Kelly should have plenty of time to look for a suitable player. It had been rumoured that Jake King, father of Jordan, was doing some scouting for the Bulls but little, if anything, seems to have come of that as yet.
