Southport 2-1 Luton

Southport boosted their Blue Square Bet Premier survival hopes by defeating fading Luton Town with two late goals.

The visitors, who remain in third place but have only one win in five games, took the lead in the 74th minute with Matthew Barnes-Homer's sweet strike.

But eight minutes later Alan Moogan headed in Shaun Whalley's cross for the equaliser.

Kevin Lee completed the turnaround with a close-range header into the bottom corner of the net.
