Manchester FA Premier Cup holders Mossley lost their grip on the trophy they have held for four of the last five seasons when going down 2-1 at Ewen Fields in Tuesday’s replayed 1st Round tie.

Mossley were without the injured Mike Fish while recent signing Mason Duffy was named amongst the substitutes.

The Lilywhites opened the brighter, moving the ball around Hyde’s artificial surface with great pace and movement and took a 7th minute lead. Andy Keogh and Tom Pratt worked a move around the box before Damase Kiwanda whipped in a great shot from the edge of the box that beat ex Mossley keeper Russ Saunders at his right hand post.

Mossley continued to press and Kiwanda was denied as his powerful header was tipped away for a corner by Saunders.

Hyde gradually started to get a grip of the game and equalised in the 20th minute. A long ball from defence saw Danny McDonnell stumble and Dan Pilkington was able to set up Joe Pugh who’s shot at the far post somehow squirmed past Liam Flynn at his near post.

The game flew at high tempo from end to end but Hyde were becoming the more threatening and the home side went ahead on 37 minutes when Harry Coates 20 yard angled drive flew across Flynn and into the far corner.

Unfortunately, Mossley lost their way after the break and were unable to break down a well organised home defence. Other than a few pot shots from distance by both sides there was little in the way of entertainment and Hyde did just about enough to earn a home 2nd round tie against Salford City.
