Nuneaton Town 2-3 Southport

Amadou Bakayoko stepped off the bench to score the winner as Southport edged a five-goal thriller at Nuneaton.

The visitors stormed into a two-goal lead as John Marsden fired home before Richard Brodie scored from close range.

Onome Sodje pulled one back for Nuneaton, then James Hogarth-Wren saved Brodie's penalty following a foul on Paul Rutherford.

Ryan Smith equalised for Nuneaton with a right-foot shot, but Bakayoko headed home to earn victory for Southport.
