Simpson had also been on target in the midweek 4-1 win over South Shields.

The result leaves Hyde 11th in the NPL Premier Division.

Elsewhere on the loan front, Kevin O’Connor played 81 minutes of Crewe’s 1-0 win at Stevenage.

Also in League Two Mathew Hudson was an unused substitute in Bury’s 4-0 win over Notts County, as was Ben Pringle as Grimsby drew 0-0 with Exeter City.

Andy Boyle played the full 90 minutes as Dundee lost 4-0 at Livingston in Jim McIntyre’s first game in charge, a result that leaves them bottom of the Scottish Premiership.

Michael Howard, who like Simpson is playing in the NPL Premier Division, was brought on as a late substitute in Hednesford Town’s 3-3 draw at Matlock Town.
