Woking 1-2 Southport

Southport ended Woking's run of three straight home wins with a hard-earned win at the Kingfield Stadium.

The visitors led early on through Charlie Joyce's header and Dom Collins doubled their lead after half time.

The defender headed David Fitzpatrick's cross in from a tight angle for his first Southport goal before substitute Giuseppe Sole fired in for Woking.

Southport's first win in four league games moves them four points above the relegation zone.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Woking v Southport

"It was a very disappointing first 45 minutes. We never turned up and they scored with their first opportunity and punished us.

"At the moment we're not good enough in both boxes and we're not taking our chances.

"We're not defending well enough at the back and you can't look for excuses. You can't give away the goals we did today.

"They are an average team but all credit to Gary Brabin - they've got them working hard and got them organised.

"No complaints for me but we do have players who can't do it on a consistent basis at the moment and it's shown in the last six weeks."
