Delroy Facey, Harry Pell's 36th-minute penalty after Lee Mansell's foul on Robert Purdie and then a third before the break from Purdie put Hereford 3-0 up before the Gulls fought back with two strikes from Ryan Jarvis and Taiwo Atieno.

Ling said: "Hereford took their chances in the first half and it was definitely a penalty. I don't blame him [Lee Mansell] because he's the type of character I want around me to get us through the play-offs.

"We've got eight days before we play Cheltenham next Sunday and will be well prepared for that.

"We're going to celebrate our season, the players deserve a couple of drinks and then we will come in on Tuesday and start preparing for the task ahead.

"They're two big games, but we will be ready for them."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
