Southport FC remain rock bottom of the League
Saturday 28 January 2006

SOUTHPORT FC returned to Haig Avenue after their mini revival in the last three games but succumbed to a sixth home defeat on the trot.Facing blinding sunlight in the first half of the game, the Sandgrounders were forced into defensive errors as they battled manfully to keep pace with the full time outfit of Kidderminster.

However first blood went to Southport after just 4 minutes, Neil Robinson rising to head the ball in from six yards out to make it 1-0.Dickinson in goal for the home side made a point blank save to deny Francis on his debut.

The equaliser arrived on 15 mins, Mark Jackson capitalising on a goal keeping error to put the visitors level.

After 26 mins a Johnny Harkness free kick found Dickinson backpedalling in goal and the shot looped over him to make it 2-1.Ten minutes before half time Iyseden Christie made sure there was no way back for Southport as is low shot from the edge of the area found its way into the net.

The second half proved to be an uphill struggle for Southport as they fell further behind on 58 mins when Simon Russell took advantage of a loose ball in the area to seal the points for Kidderminster.The Sandgrounders had little to offer and the introduction of substitutes to replace tired legs made no impact.

Southport remain anchored to the foot of the league with an interesting run in to the end of the season to avoid what would seem certain relegation.
