South Shields produced a second half turnaround to run out 2-1 winners in a close affair against Hyde United, to remain top of the Northern Premier League.
The tigers found an opener on 8 minutes for a set piece. Liam Tongue swung the corner in to the front post and Ross missed out, leaving Sherratt on hand to find the back of the net.
From there on in, it was the visitors who dominated possession and chances, as Hyde sat back against the full time outfit looking to hold onto the lead.
On 25 minutes came the first big chance for the Mariners as Osei was played in behind the Hyde defence and he was one on one with keeper Green but he flashed the shot wide of goal.
Shields made changes in the second half and they managed to finally get their goal on their 65 minutes. A high corner was floated into the box and Ross managed to get onto the end of it to find the bottom corner.
They then found the lead around 5 minutes later, as the ball wasn’t cleared by the Hyde defence and the physical man Osei was there to stab the ball home to complete the turnaround.
A young Hyde side battled well and had a late opportunity to snatch a point, when a cross into the box by Roscoe found the head of Candlin. His header was directed goalwards but keeper Boney dived to his left with a strong hand to keep the ball out of the net and seal the win for South Shields.
