Hyde United 2 – 2 Grantham Town

Hyde United and Grantham Town share the points in a feisty and entertaining game from Ewen Fields.

By Andrew Marshall (Non League Paper)

A late Ellis Humble goal for the visitors repeated Lee Ndlovu's earlier equaliser after an Ayrton Bevin's brace, to take a deserved point back to Lincolnshire. James Burke also saw red for the hosts.

The Gingerbreads dominated for long periods but found themselves behind after half an hour when Andy Pearson headed down a Ben Jago corner and Bevins was on hand to follow up and finish on his Hyde debut.

Grantham eventually got the equaliser they deserved just after the break, when the very dangerous Ndlovu back heeled on the line after a Danny Meadows headed cross.

Rather than go on to assert their dominance on the game, the visitors were again behind five minutes later when Bevins was played through by Reece Gray, and the winger's power finish into the bottom corner sent the home fans into hysterics.

Following a Burke red card for the Tigers for a second yellow, the visitors struck the bar twice through Lee Beeson and Michael Emmett, before Humble finally broke the home defences from close range, after a spillage in the Mancunians box.

Three years ago these two sides were separated by three divisions, but today they played a fair and even draw.

Star man: Ayrton Bevins
Match rating: 4/5
