Southport 1-0 Boreham Wood

Southport moved off the bottom of the National League table with Liam Nolan's late goal in the 1-0 home win over Boreham Wood.

The visitors' goalkeeper Grant Smith denied Southport the opener twice in the space of five minutes in the first half, firstly saving Louis Almond's shot from the edge of the area 22 minutes into the game.

Smith then denied Ryan Higgins when he stopped his free-kick on the goal line as the home side pushed to break the deadlock.

Boreham Wood finally carved out a threat after half an hour but Southport's Craig King tipped over following a corner.

The game looked to be heading for a draw but Southport grabbed a vital victory to lift them above North Ferriby when Nolan finally broke the deadlock with nine minutes to go.
