Hyde get over the Cammell hump
The early rounds of the FA Cup are never easy, and all clubs at this level have the ability to win in one off games, so it was important Hyde took the game and the opponents seriously.
Darren set up with a strong squad and gave Cammel Laird the respect they deserved.
Hyde looked good from the start. On a wet pitch, the ball moved briskly and Hyde were able to enjoy long periods of possession in the opening 20 minutes, but it was from a goal kick they managed to open the scoring. A long pass forward by Dylan Forth in the Hyde goal evaded the Cammell centre half and Aryton Bevins ran onto the ball and calm shot across the static keeper into the bottom right of the goal. 1-0 Hyde.
Ten minutes later and James Cadman ran onto a ball in the centre of the field and lashed an excellent shot home from 25 yards.
The remaining 20 minutes had Hyde wasting several very good chances as well as having what appeared to be a good goal ruled out for offside when Pearson was adjudged to be interfering with play for lying on the floor in the box when Adam Jones headed home from 8 yards.
HT 2-0 Hyde
A few words at half time to reinforce the need to keep a good tempo, and Hyde were out of the blocks quickly making it 3-0 when Bevins grabbed his second goal, finishing from 6 yards following an excellent period of play.
Hyde then completely dominated, creating a hat full of chances and should have scored at least three, before an outstanding ball from Pete Boyle was fired home by Amadi in the final minute of normal time.
TF 4-0 Hyde
A pleasing result and performance meaning Hyde can look forward to a home draw against Northwich or Colne once their replay is decided on Tuesday night.
