Nantwich Town v Hyde - header goes wide of the target (1)

Nantwich Town avoided a third consecutive league defeat with a late leveller to draw 1-1 at home to Hyde United.

A late Jamie Lawrie free-kick rescued a point for the Dabbers in a tight contest at the Weaver Stadium.

Despite chances for both teams, neither side was able to break the deadlock in the first period.

Matt Bell went close early in the second half for Nantwich, his stinging shot well saved.

And moments later the visitors took the lead in the 50th minute, Greaves latching on to a rebound to fire the ball in to the corner from close in.

Nantwich dominated possession and pressed for a leveller throughout the second half.

Craig Lindfield went close before Lawrie had a shot well saved on 73 minutes.

Nantwich earned their reward in the 90th minute when Lawrie’s free-kick evaded a host of bodies and the keeper to find its way into the net.
