Hyde FC picked up their first league win since April last night away to Welling, but is there hope for the Conference side?

Hyde sit rock bottom of the league, only picking up seven points in their last 28 matches, but four of these points have come in the last two games.

Welling were beaten 2-0 by the part-timers yesterday and they secured a 1-1 draw away at Southport last weekend.

Goals from Louis Almond and Connor Hughes in the second half meant travelling fans came away from Welling happy. 

Hyde have only scored five times in the last seven matches and have a tough run of fixtures in the coming months.

The Greater Manchester club survived relegation by five points last season but will need to win most of their remaining games to pull that off again. They are currently 19-points off safety, but recent performances have shown they are going to continue to fight.

There are 18 games remaining for Hyde to secure their safety.

Hyde face Forest Green Rovers on Saturday and will hope to avoid an 8-0 drubbing, which they received on the opening day of the season.

Scott McNiven's side had led in 10 of their games this season without holding on to the win before they went to Welling.

Hyde's victory means they will not be the first team in the 35 years of the Conference league to go without a win all season long.

Since January, Hyde have picked up more points than they did from August to December last year and will be looking to pick up some more wins.
