Brentford 0-3 Hereford

Graham Turner's side eased to promotion at Griffin Park

Hereford clinched automatic promotion to League One with an emphatic victory over Brentford at Griffin Park.

Gary Hooper rounded Bees keeper Ben Hamer for the first, before Theo Robinson's cool finish in 36 minutes.

That decisive goal came just a minute after Robinson had been denied from the penalty spot by Ben Hamer after a hotly-disputed foul.

Glenn Poole came close for the Bees, hitting the bar with a superb free-kick before Simon Johnson wrapped it up.

The victory - coupled with a defeat for Stockport - ensures League One football next season.
