Southport will be looking to finish the decade with a victory as they travel to Altrincham for their final game of 2019.

Following the Boxing Day defeat to Chester, Liam Watson will be hoping his side can return to winning ways as they travel to Moss Lane.

Opponents, Alty will have confidence heading into this game after beating Curzon Ashton last time out to claim their first win of the month.

Tom Peers’ second-half goal in that game moved Phil Parkinson’s side up to 17th in the Vanarama National League North table.

The Robins’ form this season has certainly been mixed, with six victories, six draws and six defeats, as they have failed to replicate the form that saw them finish fifth last year.



One of the key players for Altrincham this campaign has been Jordan Hulme, who has nine so far this season.

The Port defence already know what the 29-year-old is capable of, with three goals in his last two games against the club.

When the two sides met in the league at the Pure Stadium back in October, Raul Correia and Kieran Glynn were both on target in a 2-1 victory.

Meanwhile the Robins got their revenge in the Emirates FA Cup, as they knocked the Port out the competition with a 3-1 win.

As the decade comes a close both sides will be wanting to head into the New Year on a positive note.
