Managerless Halifax came from two goals down to rescue a point against fellow strugglers Southport.

Despite being reduced to 10 men midway through the first half as Mike Phenix was sent off for a foul on Connor Hughes, Southport took a two-goal lead.

Matty Brown turned the ball past his own goalkeeper before Cole Stockton finished neatly to make it 2-0.

But Jordan Burrow struck from the penalty spot before his late header secured a point for the hosts.
