Southport FC are still waiting for their first win of the season after they suffered their second defeat in a week going down 3-0 at home to high flying Tamworth.

The Sandgrounders were two goals down at the break after a terrible first-half performance and they conceded another goal early in the second period.

Tamworth dominated the match and they had an early chance when Tom Marshall headed the ball wide of the Southport goal.

Adam Cunningham put Tamworth ahead from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Louis Barnes and he tucked away the penalty.

The visitors had a great chance to score again when Charlie Collins was unmarked in the area but he fired the ball wide.

Collins put Tamworth 2-0 up in first-half injury time when he fire a low shot home from 18 yards.

Tamworth made sure of the three points when Tommy Wright tapped the ball in from close range after Southport failed to deal with Tom Marshall’s cross.

Southport hardly had a chance in the game and Michael Bakere missed the best chance when his shot clipped the crossbar.
