Blue Square Bet North: Worcester City 2-2 Hyde FC

Worcester City

Worcester City midfielder Tom Thorley twice scored from the spot to earn his side a draw against visiting Hyde FC.

David Poole put Hyde ahead but then each side was reduced to 10 men when City's Martin Naylor and Hyde's Chris Worsley were sent off.

Thorley levelled for the hosts but Andy Pearson headed Hyde back in front three minutes later.

Hyde's David Birch was sent off for bringing down Mike Symons and Thorley's second penalty earned City a point.


Worcester manager Carl Heeley told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"I thought that once we got level for the second time with around 20 minutes to go there was only going to be one winner.

"We had a lot of possession but to be fair to them they were quite resolute and they defended well.

"On the balance of the game a draw was about right but if we had nicked it at the end I don't think anybody could have argued."
