Good performance & point in ugly game


Trafford were short of a couple of their usual starting eleven, but the squad are sitting in 3rd place for a reason, and this was a tough test for the improving Hyde boys.

Hyde set up in a 3-5-2 playing against a Trafford side who looked to hit them on the break.

The game was ugly. I cant admit to enjoying any part of the first 45 minutes with the ball spending a lot of the time in the air, pumped forward by Trafford and won by the three Hyde centre halfs of Burke, Miller and Coates.

With 45 minutes on the clock, James Burke dived in to give away a free kick level with the left hand edge of the box, and the in swinging ball was half cleared and fired home from 8 yards. 1-0 Trafford. 2 minutes into first half injury time Trafford won another free kick and as the players lined up on the edge of the box, the Trafford #5 pawed at James Burkes face and the referee showed him a straight red.


Hyde came out with a spring in their step, knowing that they were a goal down but a man up.Trafford managed to hold back any advantage this may have given, by making the game as difficult as possible and delivering the ball quickly into the Hyde defensive third.

on 55 minutes, the extra man started to to allow Hyde to get on the ball and to get some joy. On 60 minutes a lovely ball into the box was flicked on the Matty beadle and fired home from Jamal Branker. 1-1

2 minutes later and Jamal Branker was off after going over on his ankle, to be replaced by Ayrton Bevins. The game was now all Hyde. Big replaced Dempsey on 65 minutes with Oliver Ford was on for Ryan Ellison on 70 minutes. Hyde created several good half chances, with Oliver Ford firing across the face of goal on 85 minutes just beyond Big Khamsuks left boot, and Bevins forcing an excellent save from the Trafford keeper in second half injury time.

FT 1-1

Another point gained against a good side, showing the progression of the side over the past couple of months. Hyde are now moving relentlessly in the right direction, and the coming group of five games give them the chance to progress into the semi final of the Cup against Altrincham on Tuesday 14th February, followed by four winnable games where we should look to gain 12 points against Kendal (Saturday 18th) Burscough (Saturday 25th) Farsley (Saturday 4th) and Ramsbottom (Tuesday 14th).

This would have Hyde on 49 points and within touching distance of a top 8 finish. It is some time since we have been able to think in those terms.

Well done to Darren and his staff as well as the excellent group of players we now have at the club.
