Macclesfield Town 2-2 Southport

Connor Jennings (right) scores Macclesfield's first goal

Jamie Milligan converted a 90th-minute penalty as Southport twice came from behind to earn a point at Macclesfield.

Connor Jennings put Town ahead from a Danny Whitaker cross for his seventh goal in as many matches but substitute Danny Hattersley equalised from 20 yards, two minutes after coming on.

Jennings restored Town's lead from a tight angle but Southport, with Nathan Ellington making his debut, kept going.

They were rewarded when Milligan struck after a foul by Joe Connor.
