Hyde 1-3 Bradford Park Avenue

Bradford Park Avenue put in a dominate performance to heap more gloom onto the already relegated Tigers

The Tigers put in their worst performance under Gary Lowe, in a game that Avenue dominated from the off. Hyde had a lot of possession in and around their half, and couldn’t capitalise on it throughout the game, with Bradford pressing the Hyde defenders into easy mistakes. It took 25 minutes for the visitors to take the lead when Sam Patterson was through on goal for Bradford and Ed Wilczynski took him down, with the ref pointing to the spot. Richard Marshall stepped up confidently and sent the Hyde number one the wrong way and just two minutes later it was 2-0, when Chib Chilaka was picked out by a Craig King looping cross converting with an excellent thumping finish by the striker.

Bradford were well on top and made sure of all three points before half time when Simon Ainge met a Paul Walker corner with a fantastic bullet header that was cleared on the line by Perry Ng, but the linesman on the near side judged it to be in and the goal was given.
The Tigers came out up for it in the second half after a grilling by Lowe and Booty, although they still couldn’t break down a stern Avenue defence until the 74th minute where King fouled Connor Hughes in the area to give Hyde a penalty and a lifeline, but Andy Pearson’s lacklustre effort was saved by Jon Danby.

Hyde did have something to cheer about in injury time when Erike Sousa snuck in to give the Tigers a consolation goal and it was the Portuguese winger’s first goal for the club too.
