Bamber Bridge kept their play off hopes alive after a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Hyde United at the Project Solar Stadium, with the home side looking guilty of having one eye on Monday’s cup final.
The first goal came on 7 minutes, the referee playing advantage and allowing Thompson to be found through on goal and he slotted in the bottom corner past Green.
The visitors got their second on 26 minutes, a cross into the box was only half cleared at the far post, and Bamber kept the ball alive, Sinclair pounced onto the loose ball and found the back of the net with a good strike inside the box.
The tigers regrouped after the break and started brightly, substitute Harry Pratt with the best chances, using his size and strength to turn and shoot forcing 2 good saves from Aspinall minutes apart.
With 5 minutes left to play, a corner taken short was not picked up by Hyde, and Carney fired a shot across the box, and it found the bottom corner, Green claiming he was unsighted in goal.
The visitors wrapped up their well earned three points in injury time. Daniels was on hand to capitalise after a poor touch from Roscoe and found the back of the net.
