Dover Athletic 2-2 Southport

Southport twice came from behind to draw at Dover Athletic and move two points away from the relegation zone.

Sean Raggett headed Dover in front after 13 minutes from a Barry Cogan corner, before Southport's George Donnelly hit the post with a shot.

But Daniel Lloyd-Weston set up Richard Brodie for a deserved equaliser, although the hosts restored their lead with Dan Holman's close-range finish.

Southport equalised again as Paul Rutherford converted Donnelly's pass.
