Southport 2-1 Barrow

Southport fought back from a goal down to claim their first win of the season against Barrow.

Paul Rutherford put the visitors ahead with a fine 25-yard strike into the bottom corner.

But Tony Gray grabbed the equaliser for Southport with a header from Jonathan Brown's right-wing cross.

And they completed the comeback when good work from Andy Owens, again on the right, set up Kevin Lee for a close-range header.
