Mossley gave their best performance of pre season so far in beating Premier Division neighbours Hyde United at Seel Park on Tuesday evening.

The Lilywhites created most of the clear cut chances against a near full strength Hyde side. Mitch Bryant went close on a couple of occasions before giving the home side a deserved lead on 38 minutes. Bryant caught Spencer Harris in possession on the left edge of the Hyde box before calmly finishing in the far corner beyond the stranded Josh Ollerenshaw.

Hyde's only real attempt of the half saw former Macclesfield graduate Big Khamsuk strike a great shot against Will Jones' right hand post.

Mossley lost Ryan Hibbert with a head wound just before the break with James Blair the first substitute used.

The second half saw Mossley dominant for long spells with some swift and tidy approach play and the Lilywhites continued to create the best chances throughout the half with Tom Pratt twice denied by great Ollerenshaw saves while John Buceto and substitutes Brian Matthews, Dave Short and Rhys Nevins all went close to increasing the lead. At the other end Mossley defended solidly to deny the visitors any clear sights of goal with the few shots they mustered going high and wide.

Mossley fully deserved their win. A wider margin of victory would not have been unjustified had the Lilywhites finishing matched their lively approach play.
