Stockport 4-1 Hereford

Stockport needed just 13 seconds to open the scoring as they eased to victory over Hereford.

Skipper Karl Broadhurst made a mess of a simple clearance, allowing Dominic Blizzard to come in and slot home from 12 yards out.

Jennison Myrie-Williams set up Sam Hewson to level, only for Matty McNeil to restore the lead with a header.

Matty Mainwaring's shot on the turn made it 3-1 before Michael Rose crossed for Leon McSweeney to add the fourth.

Hereford manager Graham Turner told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"It was not a humiliation, but it was certainly not far off.

"That was a very poor performance, which has been unusual as we have usually been a battling side as well as being able to play some reasonable football.

"But today there was nothing at all, there wasn't a spark."
