Stones of National League South welcome Southern Premier side Bulls on Saturday

Wealdstone know they will have to be wary of the threat posed by Hereford when they host the Southern League Premier side in the FA Trophy second round on Saturday.

National League South outfit Stones sit 11 places above the Bulls in the English football pyramid.

Bobby Wilkinson’s team, though, will come up against a Hereford side who have certainly punched above their weight in the cups this term.

After taking Fleetwood Town of League One to an replay in the second round of the FA Cup, the Bulls knocked Dagenham & Redbridge of the National League out of the Trophy in the previous round.

Stones will be playing their first game since New Year’s Day this weekend after their league trip to Havant & Waterlooville was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

This week also saw Wilkinson lose one of his key players, with defender Ciaron Brown joining Championship high-flyers Cardiff City.

The Grosvenor Vale club will hope they can cope without Brown this weekend, and at home to Hampton & Richmond Borough in the Middlesex Senior Cup on Tuesday.
