Second-half goals from Chris Sharp and Michael Rankine gave Hereford a victory over Welling.

Hereford opened the scoring when Welling goalkeeper Lee Butcher fumbled a cross and the ball deflected in off Sharp.

Rankine made no mistake with a right-foot finish seven minutes from time to increase their lead.

Ross Lafayette headed home Joe Healy's cross in stoppage time, but the damage had already been done.
