The thought of losing will spur Hereford on as they look to land a physiological blow against second place King’s Lynn Town at Edgar Street on Saturday.
Pete Beadle’s side sit 10 points above their visitors with a game in hand following Tuesday night’s 4-0 victory at Gosport Borough. However, the visitors stunned Beadle’s side in January coming from two goals down to clinch a last-gasp 3-2 victory.
Since that defeat Hereford have won seven games on the bounce and Beadle says the loss was the best thing to happen to his side.
“It gave us that kick up the back side we probably needed and since then you have seen us be a little bit different, said Beadle following Tuesday night’s victory. Sometimes you need that and it’s the best thing to happen to you.
“When you get beat like that it’s a shock to your nervous system and not how you have been set-up. When it happens it’s not a nice feeling and the boys don’t want that feeling again.
“Saturday won’t be about getting revenge but performing as we have done since then. If somebody said with 12 games to go you would be 10 points clear with a game in hand and all the teams around you have got to come to you as well you would bite their arm off.”
