Hereford   0 - 0   Burton Albion

Hereford v Burton

Hereford 0-0 Burton

Two red cards livened up an otherwise dull encounter between Hereford and Burton Albion.

Albion's Russell Penn walked after 24 minutes following his second yellow card for a late challenge on Owen Pell.

Waide Fairhurst hit the crossbar five minutes before the break for the Bulls, but chances were few and far between.

The home side were also reduced to 10 men on 54 minutes when captain Janos Kovacs picked up his second yellow for bringing down Calvin Zola.


Hereford United manager Jamie Pitman told BBC Hereford & Worcester:
"The game was a stalemate and the referee saw to that. There was no football played today as he stopped the game about a million times.

"We'll take the point - it's a point gained - we're frustrated but Burton worked hard for their point too.

(On Janos Kovacs' sending-off)"It was a soft foul and [10 man] Burton were trying to get it evened up. There were a lot of inconsistencies in the refereeing. I don't want to harp on about that as I don't want to get in trouble - it's just the inconsistency that's tough to take."

Burton boss Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby:
"We had to defend for our lives for a good 45/50 minutes which is hard on this pitch and it's hard when you consider the number of games we've played of late in short succession.

"Had the ball gone the other side of the post we could have gone on to win it.

"I thought defensively we were superb and the attitude of the players was superb, so I'm pleased we've got a point."
