Welling United romp into FA Cup fourth qualifying round with comfortable win over Hereford Town

Another outstanding performance by Welling United eased them into the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup at the expense of Hereford.

Marc Richards was unveiled as new Hereford head coach earlier in the week but his Bulls were never on the charge in a 2-0 defeat.

Thierry Audel opened the scoring for the Wings
Although clearcut chances were few and far between, Welling controlled the game.

Martin Horsell made an early save for Hereford when Jack Jebb sent a free-kick around the defensive wall.

Welling keeper Dan Wilks made his only stop during the 90 minutes, claiming Lewis Hall’s shot with relative ease.

Michael McGrath fouled Nassim L’Ghoul and Jebb’s free-kick begged Thierry Audel to head home and he duly obliged.

Substitute keeper, Brandon Powell, dives at the feet of Danny Mills
Horsell and McGrath collided going for the ball and both had to be replaced.

Josh Hill poked wide after the break after Danny Mills headed down Jebb’s corner. Kiernan slipped Mills through but substitute goalkeeper Brandon Powell was out quickly to smother.

Hereford Bulls dismayed at the score
A clearance from a Hereford corner led to Welling doubling their lead. L’Ghoul burst down the left wing before Kiernan cut into the penalty area and fired home, picture right.
