From being behind at the break, Mossley bounced back to beat Premier Divison neighbours Hyde United 4-2 in an entertaining contest under the new Seel Park lights on Tuesday evening.

It was in all an excellent performance by the Lilywhites who had the chances to win by an even wider margin after completely dominating the second half.

The first half was very much an end to end affair. Lartham was called into action making a fine save in the opening minutes before Hartshorne went close at the other end.

Hyde took the lead on 13 minutes. Tongue's shot was too hot for Latham to hold and Ally Brown followed up to tap home from close range.

The Mossley number one made up for the spill moments later making a great save from a diving header before the Lilywhites found an equaliser in the 24th minute. White's under hit back pass was pounced upon by Oumar Camara who drove forward to calmly slot the ball past Hyde keeper Bellagambi.

Hyde regained the lead five minutes before the break when when the ball broke to Liam Tongue who smashed an unstoppable shot past Latham from 20 yards.

Mossley were immediately on the offensive after the break and rarely let up their assault thereafter. Banister, Fawns and Dickin all went close before the Lilywhites equalised for the second time on 69 minutes.

Fawns recycled the ball brilliantly with a back heel that freed the livewire Jack Banister who drove home superbly from a narrow angle.

A by now rare Hyde foray forward saw Latham make another outstanding save but the Lilywhites were in the ascendancy and it was no real surprise when they took the lead on 75 minutes. Grundy's header box found Jack Banister who smashed home a peach of a volley from the edge of the box.

Mossley completed the scoring three minutes from time. Superb play by Louie Potts saw his low cross turned into his own net by Hyde defender Harry Ditchfield.

The otherwise faultless Banister had a great chance to complete a hat-trick in the final seconds but blazed over the bar from the edge of the box.
