Bulls keep up losing streak.

HEREFORD 0 WREXHAM 2 HEREFORD slumped to their fifth successive defeat and plunged perilously close to the relegation zone.

The Bulls had netted only once in their previous four matches and never looked like adding to that abysmal tally. It took just ten minutes for the Red Dragons to open their account. Joe Clarke delivered a near-post cross for Jonny Hunt to head past keeper Rhys Evans.

Evans then suffered a shoulder jury but pluckily carried on to keep the visitors' attack at bay. In the 31st minute he made a brilliant save to deny skipper Dean Keates a goal and followed up by keeping out two close-range shots by Mark Carrington with excellent diving saves.

On 41 minutes, however, substitute Rob Ogleby side-footed in Wrexham's second goal.

Daniel Loyd-Weston replaced Evans in the second half but the Bulls rarely threatened Wrexham's goal with Dean Collins heading their only on-target effort.
