Crewe 0-1 Hereford

Crewe 0-1 Hereford

Crewe   0 - 1   Hereford

Janos Kovacs fired home the winner on his debut to give Simon Davey's new-look Hereford side victory at Crewe.

The home team should have taken an early lead when Clayton Donaldson found himself one-on-one with keeper Adam Bartlett only to drag his shot wide.

Two minutes later, Hungarian Kovacs headed the Bulls into the lead when he met James McQuilken's corner.

Calvin Zola and Shaun Miller both missed chances for Crewe before Bartlett denied Matt Tootle late on.


Hereford United manager Simon Davey told BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester:

"The way the lads worked today was fantastic, they all deserve a pat on the back.

"Its a great start to come here and win one nil. Crewe are a great side and they'll be there or thereabouts and the end of the season.

"We've got a long, long way to go but that's given us a great platform to build on."
