Goals from Connor Woods and Dylan Vassallo gave Southport a 2-1 win in their second pre-season warm up game at Runcorn on Tuesday.

A very entertaining end to end game with a number of chances for both sides and plenty of positives for manager Liam Watson to ponder over as he takes stock of his squad for 2021-22.

Runcorn took the lead in the 23rd minute through Ryan Brooke before Connor Woods, who had an excellent evening, playing for the full 90 minutes equalised with good low shot.

Southport made seven changes for the second half and posed more of a threat but it took until the 86th minute to break down a strong Runcorn defence when after some great build up play Dylan Vassallo scored with a lovely finish.

Southport have added a home friendly against Marine to the pre-season schedule.
