Kevin Holsgrove's late goal helped FC Halifax maintain their impressive start to the season against Southport.

Osayamen Osawe and David Fitzpatrick went close for Southport from the edge of the box, while Lee Gregory saw Danny Hurst turn his goalbound strike away.

Hurst denied Holsgrove midway through the second half with another good save.

But it was only a temporary reprieve for Southport, as Holsgrove won the game on 86 minutes with a superb strike from 12 yards.
