Southport gained their first away win of the season with an unexpected 2-1 victory over Woking which lifted them into 21st position in the National League table.

Suspensions and injuries meant the Sandgrounders had only four fit substitutes on the bench.

But they dominated play from the start and within eight minutes they took the lead when Cole Stockton’s 20-yard shot took a slight deflection off Mark Rickettes and caught the keeper off balance. The home side looked distinctly out of sorts and it took only nine minutes for the second goal to arrive.

Louis Almond put across a corner which Luke Foster nodded on, and there was Stockdale again to put the ball into the net.

The introduction of three substitutes galvanised The Cards.

And they hit back in the 78th minute, capitalising on a slip by Will Beesley, who gave away a corner, from which Keiran Murtagh headed in John Goddard’s cross.

In the National League North, AFC Fylde beat AFC Telford United by a single goal from Akil Wright in the 15th minute.

In the FA Trophy preliminary round, Bamber Bridge went down 2-0 at Burscough.

Jonathan Conway (45) and Michael Monaghan (90) got the Linnets’ goals.

Clitheroe’s Scott Bakkor was on target against Stocksbridge Park Steels.

But goals from Scott Ruthuen and Rory Coleman either side of Bakkor’s goal saw Steels progress.

Kendal Town are in the hat for the next round after a 4-0 home win against Scarborough Athletic.

Town’s goals came from Robert Wilson (13), Jordan Connerton (49), Daniel Wilkins 6(6’) and Craig Carney (77).

Lancaster City drew 1-1 with Northwich Vics and must replay in Cheshire on Wednesday night.

Mathew Poole got the Dolly Blues’ equaliser after Iain Howard’s second-minute opener.
