Two Minutes With... Hereford United

As Martin Allen took over the helm once again as Barnet boss, Hereford were in town. Bulls’ fan Gemma (@gemmalou12) gives her thoughts in the latest instalment of Two Minutes With...
Saturday 22nd March 2014
Barnet v Hereford United
9th            18th
Previous game:
Macclesfield Town 2-0 Barnet
Wrexham 2-0 Hereford

How did you get to the game?
I travelled down by mini-bus
What did you make of The Hive?
It was smaller than what I was expecting but it wasn't a bad ground for being so modern
If you went to Underhill, how did The Hive compare?
I think the Hive had better facilities and it was easier to access but I preferred Underhill. The location was ideal and it was a traditional (old school) football ground

What did you make of the game?
It was a standard game of Conference football – both sides with very few chances. From our point of view, it was a much more positive performance, compared to the last few weeks
Who (from either side) impressed you?
Jarrod Bowen (Hereford), part of the youth team was handed his first team debut and played well for the 70 minutes he was on the pitch – a very promising start for the youngster.
Keanu Marsh-Brown (Barnet) impressed me – lots of pace down the wing
Who (from either side) could have done better?
I don't think I could pick out any individuals

Was the score line a fair reflection on the game?
Probably overall yes, although both goals could have been easily prevented by us
Who do you play next and how do you think you’ll do?
Grimsby at home. I think if we can play like we did at the weekend, we could grab something from the game

Price of match day ticket
7/10 – I think £17 for an adult in the terrace is about average for the Conference now but £23 to sit down is a little too pricey
Purchases made at the ground
8/10 – good value for a football ground
Quality of football
7/10 – a very standard game of football
Overall experience
8/10 – despite losing 2-0, I enjoyed visiting the Hive and the day as a whole
Total = 38/50

Post Match
Table – Barnet 6th / Hereford 19th
Following game
Cambridge v Barnet
