Southport 3-2 AFC Telford

Matt Nemes saved a last minute penalty to earn Southport a thrilling win over AFC Telford, who almost came from 3-0 down to grab a point.

The home side raced clear thanks to Shaun Whalley's well-placed shot, Dan Walker's low drive and Kevin Lee's header from Andy Owens' centre.

But Telford battled back through a Gregg Mills free kick and Andy Brown's close range finish.

Nemes saved Sean Newton's weak penalty to win it for a relieved Southport.
