Hornchurch saw their FA Cup run and 100 per cent record this season come to an end after conceding two goals in quick succession at Edgar Street.

Urchins made the long trip with 11 successive wins under their belt in Bostik North and cup competitions, but that superb streak ended in their third qualifying round tie.

The visitors forced a couple of early corners, but both were cleared, before Preen and Mills fired chances over at the other end.

Kenzer Lee’s header from a free-kick forced a good save from the Hereford keeper, but the hosts then went close as a downward header bounced over Sam Mott’s crossbar.

Nathan Cooper’s excellent block denied the home side on 28 minutes, before Theo Fairweather-Johnson forced a fine save after stealing possession from a home defender.

But Urchins were thankful to a great double save from Mott on the half-hour mark, before Smith flashed the ball across goal without finding a team-mate.

Fairweather-Johnson’s first-time shot flew over for Hornchurchre before half-time, but Urchins had a let-off just short of the hour mark when a Hereford shot cannoned back off a post.

The respite was brief, though, as Hereford kept the pressure on and broke the deadlock on 60 minutes when a corner was only half-cleared and the ball was sent flying back past Mott by Keyon Reffell.

Urchins fell further behind just four minutes later when one of their players was adjudged to have handled in the box and the penalty was converted by John Mills.

And Mott had to produce a superb save to tip over another effort from point-blank range with 15 minutes remaining as Hereford ensured their place in the next round.

Hornchurch: Mott, Hursit, Porter, Lee, Cooper, Roberts (Fanimo 65), Styles, Chouman, McKenzie, Fairweather-Johnson (Wall 77), Warner. Unused subs: Lambert, Kamara, Tuohy, Hussain.

Attendance: 2,440.
