FC Halifax Town 1 Southport 0

Sandgrounders went down 0-1 to Hailfax at the Shay.

Kevin Holsgrove snatched a dramatic late winner to hand FC Halifax Town all three points.

Town made most of the running as Southport seemed content to sit back and soak up the pressure.

Halifax came closest from set-pieces in the first-half, with Marc Roberts’ bullet header cleared off the line within the opening ten minutes.

Southport rarely troubled the hosts in the opening half, with Matt Glennon only called into action when a wayward cross appeared to be drifting in but for his tip behind.

The second half was much the same but for the late goal.

Halifax: Glennon, Toulson, Roberts, Ainge, McManus, Smith (Lowe 84), Pearson, Maynard, Holsgrove, Wilson (Gardner 58), Gregory (Johnson 65).

Subs not used: Senior, Briggs.

Southport: Hurst, Challoner, Flynn, George, Fitzpatrick, Chalmers, Ledsham (Irie-Bi 66), Brown (Milligan 46), Rutherford (Tames 76), Hattersley, Osawe.

Subs not used: Stevenson, Smith.

Attendance: 1,583

Man of the match: Lois Maynard
