On This Day: April 18th

Southport sealed promotion back to Division Three on this day in 1973 with a 2-0 mid-week win over Crewe Alexandra.

Entering the game they knew that two points would be enough and even without Alex Russell who was missing through injury they had plenty of fire power to outgun a side battling to escape from the re-election zone.
