Struggling Hereford squandered a first-half lead as Accrington came from behind to rescue a point.

The Bulls led in the fifth minute when Yoann Arquin received Ryan Green's ball before smashing home from just inside the area.

Stanley pushed for an equaliser with Andrew Proctor drilling inches over from outside the box.

And Micah Evans levelled from close range after Hereford goalkeeper Adam Bartlett dropped the ball at his feet.

The Bulls are now 22nd, just two points above the drop zone having played a game more than the bottom two.
