In the first few minutes it was Prince Moncrieffe who had the best chance for Hyde. The striker, making his first appearance of the season was put clean through but fluffed his shot straight into Campbell's hands. Spennymoor took the lead on 10 minutes when they were allowed to shoot from 30 yards, the ball struck the post but fell kindly for Craig Powel to tap home. Neil Hall flicked a ball through to Yeo who blasted over when he should have done better. Brenchley had a long range effort on goal which had the goalkeeper flying through the air but the shot went just over the top. A quick throw from Yeo played in Rodwell who delivered a super ball for Scott Brenchley to glance a header into the far corner to equal things up on 40 minutes. Brenchley went close just after half time when he headed a Yeo cross wide. Spennymoor were almost gifted a goal by some poor defending but Graham Bennett made a good block. The ball fell to Paul Taylor who played in Simon Yeo who forced the Spennymoor keeper to kick the ball against the striker who just blasted into an empty goal from inches on 52 minutes. A couple of Spennymoor corners worried the Hyde back line. Firstly, a good ball in resulted in a scramble with Kojoe Taylor blocking a goal-bound effort and secondly, the big center half connected with a cross but his header went just past the post. George Switzer then gifted Spennymoor a real chance when his header didn't reach Bennett and Bowes got between the two, the striker was kicking himself though when he pulled his shot wide. Steve Haw and Jody Banim came on as subs and looked lively, keeping the visitors on the back foot until the final whistle.
