ACCRINGTON Stanley finished the season with a bore draw at play-off certainties Hereford.
The Reds wanted to go better than the 10th place they finished last season but they ended up equalling it after failing to get past the promotion-chasing Bulls.
Stanley were restricted to long range efforts with former Hereford striker David Brown trying his luck from long range as did Lee McEvilly.
But Hereford had the best chances just after the interval when makeshift left back Rory Prendergast did well to clear a Craig Stanley goalbound header off the line and Danny Alcock saving a point blank Andy Tretton header.
Neither side could break the deadlock though and it petered out with the teams sharing the spoils.
"It wasn't a classic," said boss John Coleman. "It was more like a pre season friendly although there some good performances from Jonathan Smith, Danny Alcock and Mike Flynn.
"I do think we have improved from last year and now we have to take it a step further. We have the basis of a good squad here to challenge next year."
