Port protests despite 2-0 victory at home to Forest Green Rovers

17th April 2017

Result | Southport 2-0 Forest Green Rovers

Relegated Southport pulled off a stunning 2-0 victory to end the three-game winning run of Forest Green Rovers, whose place in the play-offs had already been confirmed.

It took 32 minutes before the first shot of the game, Southport’s Jamie Allen firing wide with a swerving left-footed effort.

The game finally burst into life in the 62nd minute when a corner fell nicely for home defender Robbie Cundy, who fired home from close range.

The Sandgrounders doubled their lead nine minutes later when Liam Noble’s right-wing cross was converted by Rory McKeown, who later struck the base of a post and Allen blazed over the rebound.
