James Mulley scored one and created the other as Braintree squeezed past Hyde.

The visitors started well as Alex Woodyard stung David Carnell's palms before Ben Wright's precise pass allowed Mulley to score from 12 yards.

Roles were reversed for Braintree's second just before the break as Mulley played in Wright to fire home.

Hyde grabbed a lifeline thanks to Jamie Milligan's unstoppable low drive but mid-table Braintree held on as Hyde remain four points above the drop zone.
