Tiverton v Hereford

Football - Southern League Premier - 24 Oct 19:45

Tiverton 7th (W8-D1-L5 = 25 points).
Scored 20, conceded 17. Hereford 5th (W9-D2-L2 = 29 points). Scored 30, conceded 11.

I deliberated over this one for a little while and have come to the conclusion that Hereford are too big of a price here, despite the home side having some claims. Tiverton have started life in this higher division very well, largely off the back of their home form which has seen them pick up 5 wins in 6 games.

Their 3 away wins have come at Bishops Stortford, Frome and St Ives (17th, 18th and 23rd) - so none of the top sides in the division, although they did claim home wins over Weymouth and Hitchin earlier on in the season. Much of this good form however, came a while ago now. They've lost 4 of their 6 games now and perhaps crucially their last home game against St Neots (11th). They've played 3 games since that win (all away) and although they've won two of them they were against Gosport (24th on 1 point) and Bishops Stortford who are in the lower echelons of the division.

Hereford are a very good side. They lost at home to Farnborough when I tipped them last but a red card stopped them in their tracks and I felt they were a touch unlucky. They've won their last 7 away games (drawing their opener) which includes mightily impressive victories at Weymouth and National League side Eastleigh in the FA Cup as standout results.

Hereford showed no signs of a hangover from that defeat to Farnborough when bouncing back against Kings Langley in a 3-0 win at the weekend. They are the bookies favourites to win this division and I share those sentiments (although Slough and Kettering might have a thing or two to say about that) but I just think they'll be too strong for Tiverton, and at a good price.
