Hyde produced a much improved performance on Monday night, but contrived to concede a sucker goal in injury time to lose a game they should have won by some margin.

The Tigers welcomed back Kevin Holsgrove on a 3 month loan from Altrincham and he was instrumental in everything positive Hyde did. Apart from scoring a well worked goal on 55 minutes, he hit the post a minute later and then in the dying seconds saw his goal bound shot deflected with the goalkeeper beaten.

After a pretty dull first period, the game livened up after the break once Hyde had gone ahead. Dale Johnson thought he had grabbed a second after the goalkeeper fumbled a Holsgrove shot, but the assistant ruled him offside. It was a close call and probably had a bearing on the result.

Within a minute Hyde had given away a needless free kick and then didnít react when it was taken quickly and Adam Muller had the simple task of side-footing home. Substitute Andy Todd hit a post for Eastwood with ten minutes remaining when it seemed easier to score but it was still Hyde calling the shots but they just couldnít convert the chances they created.

Holsgrove was inches wide with a screamer, substitute Scott Mooney had a couple of chances and then a defender got in the way when Holsgrove looked to score.

Then into injury time with Hyde pushing forward for a winner, the visitors broke clear. Panic in the Tigers defence and Lee Stevenson was on hand to break Hyde hearts with an undeserved winner for Eastwood. It was a killer goal with no way back for the demoralised Tigers and be-leagued boss, Neil Tolson, whose birthday had been wrecked with such a cruel late blow.
