Shaymen claim draw with leaders

Hyde FC 1 Halifax Town 1

Town became just the fifth side this season to get anything from a Blue Square Bet North trip to Hyde

Town were full value for their interval lead although had only a 12th minute strike from James Dean to show for their efforts in the opening 45 minutes.

The second half could hardly have started any worse for Neil Aspin’s side as Chris Worsley levelled from a close range header in the second minute after he restart.

There were chances for both sides as play swung from end to end, but neither team could find a winner.
