Hereford United 1-0 Salisbury City

Dominic Collins struck the only goal as Hereford secured their third win in four league matches with victory over Salisbury City.

The visitors had the better chances in the first half but Theo Lewis and Jamie White were off target when well placed.

The only goal came when Collins met Frankie Artus's corner and his header found the back of the net.

Salisbury thought they had levelled late on but Rob Sinclair's effort was ruled to have not crossed the line.

The win is better news for the Bulls whose future is still in the balance despite managing to pay a hefty outstanding tax bill on Friday.
