Southport 2-2 Tranmere Rovers

Goals from Jay Harris and James Norwood saw Tranmere come from behind to earn a point against 10-man Southport.

Gary Jones put the hosts ahead when he fired home from the edge of the area.

Loanee Mike Phenix doubled the lead five minutes later with a neat turn and finish before Andy Mangan's free-kick crashed onto the crossbar for Rovers.

Harris tapped in for 2-1 and Norwood powered home from 12 yards before Luke Foster saw red for a foul on Marlon Jackson 26 minutes from time.
