Paul Carden has signed left sided defender Ben Davies on loan from Preston North End. Davies joins Port squad for tomorrows trip to Forest Green Rovers.

On Saturday the Port players will be highly motivated to hit the headlines as the first Vanarama National League club to take any points off highflying leaders Forest Green Rovers.

Then on Tuesday September 14th the Port have their own Merseyside derby when Gary Brabin’s Tranmere Rovers arrive at the Merseyrail Community Stadium. The ex Port manager, Gary Brabin left Southport soon after the tremendous FA Cup Third Round  performance at Derby County to move to a “dream job” at Everton before being headhunted to pioneer the Prenton Park club back into the Football League.

Team news: Josh Thompson serves the third match of his suspension on Saturday and will be available for the Tranmere match. Andrai Jones misses both Forest Green Rovers and Tranmere Rovers as he serves a four match ban.
