Goals from Anthony Cook, Donovan Simmonds and Jamie Slabber helped the Blue Square Bet South outfit to a 3-1 victory yesterday and they will travel to Broadfield Stadium with a third-round place at stake.

Hereford upset Shrewsbury on Saturday and will next travel to Cheltenham, currently third in League Two, with the clashes set to be played on the weekend of December 1 and 2.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
