County made it five straight wins and five straight clean sheets in another fantastic performance at Edgar Street today.

Adam Proudlock was the only player left out of the side that beat Wrexham on Tuesday night, and Tes Bramble was the player to replace Proudlock.

And Bramble was challenging the Hereford keeper straight away, when he brought a good save out of Wayne Brown after getting on the end of a Gareth Owen knock down.

Ashley Williams nearly brought County’s 360 minutes without conceding a goal to an end, when he produced a weak back pass but Wayne Hennessey just managed to beat the Hereford striker to the ball.

Adam Griffin also had a chance after some good work from Elding and Poole, but Griffin put the ball wide of the goal.

But it wasn’t much longer before County’s magnificent support was rewarded, when Tes Bramble somehow managed to get the ball into the net when he followed up an Anthony Elding knockdown. 1-0 to County and cue absolute madness on the away terrace.

And it wasn’t over there as Anthony Elding got his third goal in County’s colours, and it was his third header, as he powered home following Jason Taylor’s cross.

The County fans were in dreamland and the promotion songs were rolling out of the away end.

At half time Tes Bramble was taken off after a good first half performance, and Adam Proudlock was brought on – there was no rest bite for the Hereford defence.

Proudlock brought a fine save out of Brown almost straight away when he fired the ball across goal, but Brown was up to the task and made a fine save.

Simon Travis, the ex County player, thought he had an assist against his old team, when his deflected shot went past Wayne Hennessey, but the linesman correctly ruled that the player the shot had deflected off was offside.

But County were looking very comfortable at the back and nothing was going to stop County marching on to the fifth straight victory.

David Poole had a chance after Adam Proudlock’s fantastic through ball, Anthony Elding brought another fine save out of Brown but the referee ruled a goal kick, and Adam Griffin had a chance which he fired just wide.

And as the game was closing out, all the normal victory anthems were coming out of the away end. But the County fans were saving a special thanks for Stephen Gleeson, who will be going back to Wolves with extra confidence and Jim Gannon knows it will be impossible to get the fantastic player. ‘One Stephen Gleeson’ rang out around Edgar Street to appreciate the fantastic work Gleeson has done for the club, and Gleeson acknowledged the support as he came over to the fans straight away at the end of the game.

It was another win for the magnificent County, and it is now five straight wins and five straight clean sheets.

Mansfield at home, and then Accrington away! Two very juicy games and I can’t wait!

  • It is indeed mate! Especially with our home form! Tuesday night, I’m hoping for a big crowd please! 🙂

  • It’s getting very difficult not to get overexcited, especially because with Swindon and Walsall tripping up today, it looks like all three automatic spots are open again.

    Two more victories together and we’ll equal the club record for most consecutive wins, set way back in the 1927-28 season.

  • We haven’t won 5 on the bounce since the 20th September to the 11th October 1997 in which we beat Huddersfield, Birmingham, Charlton, Portsmouth and Oxford that’s 9 years, 3 months and 23 days ago

  • I will second that. Thanks for you time here Steve. Good luck with Wolves. I am going to mosey on over to Vital Wolves and make sure they know they have a gem.
