Olly Marx at Southport: After Saturday's set-back against Alfreton, Southport made the trip to York on Tuesday evening for a rearranged fixture due to bad weather looking to bounce back. 

Olly lined up against the Minstermen from the start for this Vanarama National League North game and completed the full 90 minutes. 

First half goals from City's Alex Kempster and Aiden Connolly saw the Sandgrounders trail 2-0 at the break but the second half saw Port fight back.

First Jason Gilchrist fired home a rebound from a saved penalty before Elliott Osborne fired Southport level with a superb strike from 30-yards in the 87th minute.

Southport would be forgiven for thinking that they had secured a point but York were not done scoring yet.

A low ball following a 90th minute corner by Connolly found subsititue James Gray who fired home to secure the points for City.

Southport dropped to 12th in defeat and are now 5 points behind 7th placed side Stockport County while York remain 5th.

Four former reds were in the York squad, Gray, Adriano Moke, Hamza Bencherif and Sean Newton.

Olly's Southport are back in action on Saturday when they travel to Darlington then they'll entertain leaders Salford City on Easter Monday.
