ANDY Milne's first-half dismissal turned the tide against Tadcaster Albion in a 4-1 defeat to Hyde United at Ewen Fields.

Aiden Savory put the Brewers ahead after just four minutes before the 35th-minute dismissal of Milne was quickly followed by Paddy Miller equalising for Hyde United.

Karl Jones nudged them ahead on the hour before goals from Matt Beadle and James Burke added gloss to the victory.

Albion manager Michael Morton made one change to the starting line-up for the Evo-Stik League division one north clash after the draw against Trafford, as Savory passed a fitness test.

The former Farsley Celtic striker had gone a couple of months without a goal after a potent start to the campaign but was back on target again inside five minutes.

Seconds after Milne recovered to deal with a dangerous back pass from Chris Howarth, the ball was in Hyde's net.

Corey Roper's sweeping ball behind the United defence led to keeper Pete Crook rushing off his line, but this only caused confusion, which allowed Savory to slide the ball into an empty net.

In a frantic start, ten minutes hadn't passed when Beadle rounded Michael Ingham and went to ground seeking a penalty, only for the referee to award a goal kick.

Hyde continued to put pressure on Taddy but they rode that mini wave and threatened to extend their lead shortly after the half-hour as Savory's strike from outside of the box was tipped wide by Crook.

The turning point came two minutes later as skipper Milne was shown a red card.

The defender was adamant that Tom Pratt was offside as the ball was played through but the flag didn't come and Milne brought down the attacker.

The versatile Savory then move into the back four to partner Josh Barrett.

The impressive Janni Lipka sent a fierce strike into the side-netting as Tad looked to have made it to the interval with their lead intact.

However, former Brewer Miller levelled on the stroke of half-time as he flicked the ball onto his weaker right foot before his drive deflected in off the underside of the crossbar.

Taddy came out in the second half and put bodies behind the ball, and this was worked for the first 15 minutes as United were reduced to long-range strikes.

However as the clock flicked over the hour, the home side nudged in front.

First-half substitute Karl Jones somehow got beyond Laurence Hunter and Cam Murray before sneaking a shot into the bottom corner.

When Albion did regain possession, they had very few options going forward, although Greening cleverly tried to catch Crook off guard by going for a spectacular flick-up and volley from 35 yards, which didn't quite have enough loop on it.

But United rubber-stamped victory with 14 minutes remaining, creating an overload down Albion's right side for Beadle to turn home a low cross at the near post.

Darren Kelly's side grabbed a fourth in the final minute as Dominic Marie's miscued shot dropped kindly for Burke to tap in from a couple of yards.
