The Hillmen showed impressive resilience as they recovered from the blow of losing their goalkeeper to a red card just before the half hour mark to keep their net intact and secure an unlikely point with ten men against their local rivals.

Russ Saunders became the second GNE keeper sent off in five games when he was adjudged to have handled a short headed pass-back on 27 minutes. There’s no doubt that he was outside of the area, but there was a question as to whether the ball was kick onto his hand rather than move his hand to the ball. Nevertheless, the linesman signalled the foul and was in no doubt, Saunders had to go.
By that point Hyde should probably have been in front, with former Glossop man Karl Jones guilty of missing two glorious opportunities in the 8 th and 9 th minutes. Firstly his swivelled shot from Jack Stockdill’s cross was ballooned over from 6 yards, and then from a similar distance he placed a shot from another left sided cross wide.
Jason Hill and Ben Deegan had headed wide for GNE before Saunders’ dismissal changed the game’s flow. Deegan was forced to take the gloves, as he had been 9 days earlier, and it changed into a rear-guard action. Glossop did well to keep Hyde to one good chance before the break, Jones again missing after beautifully controlling a high ball.
Glossop’s determination did not wane in the second half, no more exemplified than in the 55th minute when from a Hyde corner Richardson and Stockdill had shots blocked by flying GNE bodies. Meanwhile, Deegan was forced to make an impressive save from Jones. Deegan looked comfortable, and was only troubled by a Tom Pratt shot that he could only parry upwards on his line,and had to scramble to try and catch or clear the loose ball, eventually drawing a foul.
GNE were trying to get forward, particularly after the introduction of Jude Oyibo whose pace gave the Hyde back line something to think about, but it was mostly about keeping Hyde out, and the stout defending saw the Tigers forward line run out of inspiration towards the end.
There was a potential lift for Hyde as injury time approached as Matthew Williams was shown a yellow then red card, to possibly put Glossop down to 9. However, Williams had not been shown a first yellow card – the referee had made an error in his notetaking. He consulted with both his assistants before admitting his error. So for spectators of this game they at least now have an answer to the age old question asked at games over the world – ‘when did you ever see a referee change his mind?’. Note the date for future reference!
