AFC Telford United 3-3 Southport

Mike Phenix's late goal earned a point for AFC Telford against Bucks boss Liam Watson's former club Southport.

Johnny Gorman's 20-yard free-kick put the visitors ahead only for Phenix to level after an Andy Owens' set-piece.

Richard Brodie put the visitors back in front before Telford's Godfrey Poku was sent off for lashing out at Brodie.

Tony Gray then levelled once more, before Brodie fired home his second to restore Southport's lead but Phenix grabbed a point a minute from time.

Telford, who came from behind three times to earn only their second point of the season, had five former Sandgrounders on show against their old club.

After losing their first two games, Martin Foyle's Southport are now unbeaten in three matches.
