Lancaster City travel to Hyde United hoping to extend unbeaten run

Lancaster City can make it six games unbeaten this weekend when they take on Hyde United.

On Saturday (September 9), City will play their eighth game of the season proper, which only started four weeks ago, and they have had a good start to the campaign.

The Dollies travel to the Project Solar Stadium having lost just once so far this season – against current league leaders Radcliffe, who have won all six league games, in a 4-2 defeat on August 15.

Some very strong performances have followed in the subsequent games, with a 3-0 victory over Macclesfield being a particular highlight.

They currently sit fourth in the NPL Premier Division at this relatively early stage of the season.

Mark Fell’s side’s last game was a 2-1 victory in the FA Cup First Qualifying Round against Witton Albion last Saturday (September 2).

Their opponents this Saturday, Hyde United, are fifteenth, having won two, drawn one and lost three of their six league games.

Just like Lancaster, their first few fixtures have seen them come up against some very strong opponents who are expected to be aiming towards the top of the division, such as Marine – who they did beat 2-1 - Radcliffe, and last season’s playoff finalists Bamber Bridge, who beat them 2-0.

Lancaster City are unbeaten in their last five games against Hyde United and have won in their two most recent visits to their ground.

Dollies manager Fell spoke to Beyond Radio after his side’s 2-1 win over Witton Albion and previewed the trip to Greater Manchester.

“Hyde is a place where we traditionally play quite well, to be honest," he said.

"They’ve had a decent start but if we can carry that momentum [from recent results] and pick up a positive result, it gives us a nice platform for the games that follow.”

Hyde United v Lancaster City kicks off at the Project Solar Stadium on Saturday at 3pm.
