Following on from our Talking Bull archive article from April 2008, the next match from the Video Vault covers goal highlights of the vital League Two encounter at Griffin Park that saw Hereford United clinch automatic promotion with a fine 3-0 victory.

Hereford clinched automatic promotion to League One with an emphatic victory over Brentford at Griffin Park.

Gary Hooper rounded Bees keeper Ben Hamer for the first, before Theo Robinson’s cool finish in 36 minutes.

That decisive goal came just a minute after Robinson had been denied from the penalty spot by Ben Hamer after a hotly-disputed foul.

Glenn Poole came close for the Bees, hitting the bar with a superb free-kick before Simon Johnson wrapped it up.
The victory – coupled with a defeat for Stockport – ensures League One football next season.
