Jason Walker's brace gave Southport a crucial win against already-relegated Tamworth.

Kevin Thornton and Richie Baker nearly put the visitors into an early lead but both were denied by Danny Hurst.

Walker put the hosts ahead from close range after the break before doubling their lead with a cool finish.

The Lambs' relegation from the Conference Premier was confirmed by losing to Luton while Southport are now four points clear of the bottom four.
