Tough to take


Defeat at the Bridge is difficult to take. This was an even contest between two young sides, who looked to play football through the majority of the 90 minutes of the game

The first 15 minutes had Bamber Bridge in control of the ball and looking good in possession across the back four, but it was Hyde with the cutting edge and the chances. Pete Boyle forced a very good save cutting inside and letting fly with his left on 25 minutes. Andy Bishop reacted first to a poor clearance on 35 minutes forcing a double save on the line. Hyde were eventually in front on 44 minutes when Janni Lipka fired home from 8 yards following a corner which Bridge failed to clear.

HT 1-0 Hyde

The second half started with Hyde the quicker out of the blocks, and looking to secure the game. On 60 minutes and excellent ball from Matt Dempsey floated over the head of the centre half into Pete Boyles path, and he clipped the ball forward in the box at the same time as he was cleaned out by the Bridge defender for a clear penalty. The referee had a clear view, but unbelievably looked for help from his linesman, who nervously looked at his feet, and the referee decided to bottle it.

5 minutes later and Hyde invited pressure in the left back position, trying to play when the ball should have been hooked down the line, resulting in a Bridge corner. The ball was delivered into the box, half cleared and eventually fired home at the second attempt from 5 yards.

5 minutes later and Bridge added a second with the ball played over the top to their number 9 who looked a good three yards off side, but the linesman kept his flag down allowing him to cut inside and fire the ball with a deflection under the Hyde keeper into the net.

The remaining 15 minutes were all Hyde, with Bridge dropping deep to protect the points.

FT 1-0 Bamber Bridge

A disappointing result for the decent number of travelling Hyde faithful who watched their side edge the possession and the chances, but fail to secure the points.

At least the teams around us all lost today, but that makes the loss harder because it was the chance to open up a gap. Three very important games coming up against Droylsden, Colwny Bay and Glossop. Hyde need to get 6 points from these to start a positive move up the league.
