Highlights: Southport 0-0 Fleetwood


Southport 0-0 Fleetwood

"They'll do it all again". 

It's goalless on a cold night in Southport meaning a replay will be needed to secure a place in the second round against Shrewsbury.

Full match highlights coming soon...


Southport 0-0 Fleetwood

Last-chance stuff in the dying stages. Fleetwood's Bolger meets the ball at the near post but his header is only hitting the boards.

Bolger's header just wide for Fleetwood


Southport 0-0 Fleetwood

Last chance to be a hero but it's Southport keeper Magnus Norman who takes that mantle.

Devante Cole - son of Andrew - is the man left shaking his head for Fleetwood in the 91st minute.

Southport's Cole denied in 91st minute

Fireworks on the pitch. Literally.

Southport 0-0 Fleetwood

Flare thrown. Yellow smoke fogs up the Fleetwood area. A couple of toilet rolls have been spotted coming from the Jack Carr stand too. The stewards do their job but then another one fires in and lands in the six-yard box. 

Flares thrown on pitch


Southport 0-0 Fleetwood

It looked like the bar did all the work for Southport keeper Magnus Norman but closer inspection shows his fingertips made the difference as Jimmy Ryan's free-kick swung over the wall on its way to the goal. A classy save.

Finally something for the fans to get out of their seats for.

Luton v Yeovil/Solihull Moors

'The gap is getting smaller'

Salford City and former Manchester United forward Danny Webber: "The gap between non league and the league is getting smaller all the time. The only difference is consistency. On any given day teams from the sixth, seventh, eighth tier can win these games."

Dev Wallwein: If Peterborough could pull Cambridge United or Northampton at home that would be the perfect second round tie

Josh Ravenscroft: Vale at home or Macclesfield away would be nice. A local derby; as ours is Accrington at the moment

Shall we do it all with pool balls?

Westfields (Ball 14)

Smallest team left in

Westfields (Ball 14)

The lowest-ranked side left in the competition are Westfields FC, who play in the Midland League Premier Division. That's the NINTH tier.

In the league they may be trailing leaders Alvechurch by eight points - albeit with games in hand - but after a 1-1 draw with Curzon Ashton they are very much in the hat.

'We knew we could do a job'

Macclesfield goalkeeper Craig Ross on BBC Two: "We beat Walsall away from home and you have to back yourselves. We knew we could do a job no matter where it was.

"We played well and got the result."
