Macclesfield Town 0-0 Southport

Southport were denied a first National League win of the season after failing to overcome 10-man Macclesfield.

Macclesfield goalkeeper Shwan Jalal produced a superb save to keep out Gary Jones' penalty for Southport after Neil Byrne's foul on Luke Foster.

Byrne then saw a goalbound header cleared off the line by Matty Challoner.

Andy Halls was dismissed on the hour for a second bookable offence before Jones struck both posts for Southport with a shot 12 minutes from time.
