Hereford United 3-2 FC Halifax Town

Eric Odhiambo

Hereford came from behind to beat Halifax and extend the visitors' wait for an away league win this season.

Josh Wilson's penalty put Halifax in front but Josh O'Keefe equalised, turning in a Frankie Artus free-kick.

Joe Ironside headed the Shaymen back in front but Dominic Collins, who had given away the earlier spot-kick, nodded in a Dan Walker cross to level.

Walker was again the provider as Eric Odhiambo netted what proved to be the winning goal at Edgar Street.
