Captain Alan Moogan urges Southport to keep believing

Southport captain Alan Moogan says his side need to keep believing they can get out of relegation trouble in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

The Sandgrounders sit 22nd in the table, one point from safety, following Tuesday's 2-0 defeat to York City.

"We've got to start putting our chances away," he told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"We're in a bad bit of form at the moment, we've just got to keep believing in ourselves and sticking together and we can get out of it."

Southport have gone seven league games without a win, their last victory coming in a 2-1 triumph over Tamworth on 2 October, but skipper Moogan says the team is not playing as badly as the table and recent results suggest.

"At the beginning of the season we did start well," Moogan continued. "I don't think we've played too bad at times, but we need to put our chances away when we get them - that's the difference.

"We need a little bit of luck and one will go in and hopefully it will change in the near future. We want to create more in open play but we're strong from set-plays.

"We've got some big lads in our team and we are strong from set-pieces, but we've got to mix our game up."
