Southport 2-3 Morecambe

Play-off hopefuls Morecambe shrugged off their poor away form to complete a festive-season double over Southport despite a late scare.

They were cruising at 3-0, but Southport struck twice to set up a grandstand finish as Morecambe won on the road for only the third time in 13 games.

Morecambe deservedly led after 44 minutes when Danny Carlton pounced from close range, and went 2-0 up just after the break when Stuart Drummond converted a penalty after Lee Elam had been fouled by Chris Lane.

Adriano Rigoglioso, who bagged a brace in the Boxing Day 3-0 win, then looked to have sealed the points with a right-foot shot.

But substitute Paul Edwards' goal was followed by an 85th-minute strike from Peter Thomson, and the visitors held on when goalkeeper Craig Mawson tipped an Edwards header round the post.


Southport: Dickinson, Barry Jones, Clark, Moore, Lane, Pickford, Soley, Gibson, Nolan, Steve Jones, Thomson.
Subs: Whitehall, Edwards, Scott, Winstanley, Welsby.

Morecambe: Mawson, McKearney, Swan, Bentley, Colkin, Elam, Stringfellow, Drummond, Thompson, Rigoglioso, Carlton.
Subs: Murphy, Talbot, Morgan, Rogan, Curtis.

Referee: D Richardson (Halifax).
