Rosler: We won't underestimate Hereford

1 December 2017

Uwe Rosler says that his side can’t underestimate Hereford on Saturday in the Emirates FA Cup.

Rosler side welcome The Bulls to Highbury this weekend in the Second Round of the competition, after securing a dramatic victory of National League North side Chorley in the last round.

The visitors have played five matches to earn themselves the tie against Rosler’s side after overcoming AFC Telford in early November.

“As a club, we are looking forward to the game,” said Rosler.

“We need to do the business and not wait for anything to happen.

“We are fully aware of their ambitions, and the threats they will give us. 

“They are a successful team and haven’t lost an away game, and that shows that they know what they are doing.

“Hereford score goals by putting bodies into the box and things dropping for them, and we need to find a way to keep them away from our half, and from our box.”

Rosler has seen his side keep three clean sheets in their last three home matches, with the German now seeking goals at the other end.

“We’ve had a few games where we haven’t scored, but that doesn’t mean overnight we have problems offensively,” he added.

“A few games ago we were the third best team scoring in the league. For us now, it is important that we get it right on the day, and get the balance right with, and without the ball.  

“Since I have been here, my team have been very good with and without the ball, we’ve shown strong mentality and showed that we haven’t been phased having the ball.

“We have forced mistakes from our opposition and with these qualities we have, we need to get back to doing it every game.”

As the club look to reach the Third Round for only the third time in their history, Rosler has praised the fans impact against Blackpool last week and wished for more of the same on Saturday.

“The atmosphere against Blackpool was terrific, and if they can do the same again, that will help us.

“We need a seven or eight out of ten performance from everybody, even from our supporters.

“I see us as a group who sit together in a boat; all going in the right direction."
