Hyde 1-2 Chester

Craig Lindfield

Hyde's winless start to the Conference Premier season continued as they lost at home to fellow strugglers Chester.

Hyde made a dream start when a neat Louis Almond finish beat John Danby, and they went close again as Scott Spencer's header forced a good save.

Chester equalised as Craig Lindfield nodded in a Craig Mahon cross from six yards out.

Mahon then bagged the winner as he beat the offside trap and lobbed Hyde keeper Lawrence Vigoroux.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Chester manager Neil Young told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"I think we got a little bit nervous after conceding in the last minute last week.

"It's great credit to the groundsman here that this game has carried on, and great credit to both sides for playing out such an entertaining game.

"I've got to give the lads credit for coming from 1-0 down in difficult conditions and winning 2-1."
