Southport 1-2 Wrexham

Joe Anyinsah

Joe Anyinsah scored a late winner as Wrexham hit back to beat Southport in the Conference Premier.

Southport went ahead when Scott Brown headed home following Mark Carrington's poor clearance.

Dave Artell's header from Carrington's corner levelled the score and both sides had further chances in an entertaining first half.

Andy Bishop struck the post and Danny Hurst denied Theo Bailey-Jones before Anyinsah scored from long range.
