0509HER Declan Weeks

    Preview: Blyth Spartans (h)

    The Blues host Blyth Spartans this weekend looking to recover from their first home loss of the season in midweek.

    A late stunning strike ensured Hereford left the Leap76 Stadium with all three points, leaving Calum McIntyre’s side with eight points from their opening eight games.


    Blyth have made a terrific start to the new campaign and sit in 4th place ahead of the long trip to CH1.

    After avoiding relegation on the final day of last season, beating Hereford 5-0, they’ve made a promising start to 23/24 – winning five of their opening eight games. Their three defeats have all come on the road, including conceding three late goals last weekend to Boston United.
