Hereford retain Everton hope after FA Cup draw with Cheltenham


Everton will have to wait another week to see who they will meet in the FA Cup third round after League Two Cheltenham and impoverished non-League Hereford drew 1-1 at Whaddon Road last night.

Cheltenham dominated the opening stages and the pressure finally paid off on 16 minutes when a slick pass from Marlon Pack found Jermaine McGlashan down the right and his low cross was neatly flicked over the line by Shaun Harrad.

However, Hereford levelled with their first attack of the game four minutes later. Ryan Bowman's cross found Josh O'Keefe and although his initial header was pushed out by keeper Scott Brown, O'Keefe powered in the rebound.

The second half was more even with both sides having chances to snatch the game but the tie goes to a replay at Edgar Street.
