Welling United 0-1 Southport

Dino Maamria
Dino Maamria is Southport's seventh manager since April 2013

Mike Phenix's goal helped Southport earn a National League victory at Welling in Dino Maamria's first game as Sandgrounders boss.

The visitors started strongly, and Phenix was unlucky not to score when his shot was cleared off the line.

Welling struggled to create chances, with Xavier Vidal's second-half effort their only attempt on target.

Phenix fired home to round off a swift counter-attack late on and earn his side their first win in four games.
