A Craig Hobson brace against Hereford saw Stockport extend their unbeaten run to four matches.

Hereford lost Marlon Jackson to an early injury and it got worse for the Bulls when Hobson's low shot beat keeper James Bittner at his near post.

The forward's second came just before the break, when he fired in after Hereford failed to clear a corner.

Phil Marsh grabbed a consolation for the hosts when he fired into the near corner from the right side of the box.
