Phil Jevons' hat-trick hammered Hereford United to end Hyde's seven-match winless run and lift them off the bottom of the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Hyde came from behind following Ryan Bowman's early header to lead 3-1 thanks to strikes from Scott Spencer, Alex Brown and Jevons.

Former Carlisle striker Bowman nodded in a second following Samuel Clucas' cross to reduce the deficit to one.

However Jevons fired home twice in four minutes late on to secure his treble.

Hyde's victory lifted them off the bottom - two points clear of Kidderminster Harriers.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Bulls manager Martin Foyle told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"The mistakes have cost us big time today, so I have got no excuses.

"I hold my hands up. Did I select the right side and did I select the right formation?

"I will certainly have a good look at myself, but I hope the players have a good look too.

"I thought we pulled out of a lot of tackles and challenges today. We looked quite weak."
