National League: Southport 3-2 Wrexham

Louis Almond's double took his tally up to nine goals for the season so far

Southport claimed a sixth consecutive National League win as they came from behind to beat Wrexham.

Wes York put Wrexham ahead from close range before Louis Almond's deflected shot saw the hosts level at the break.

Luke Foster headed Southport in front after half-time before substitutes James Gray poked in for the visitors from a corner to make it 2-2.

But Jamal Fyfield brought Almond down in the box and the striker stepped up to score from the spot to win the game.

Wrexham have now lost three games in a row, a run which started with defeat at home to Southport in the reverse fixture on Boxing Day.

Wrexham manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio Wales: "A couple of decisions could have changed the game but ultimately we've conceded three goals.

"We're not keeping clean sheets and it's costing us. We've come away from home and scored two goals but ended up losing the game.

"We cannot continue to defend and concede goals like we are doing. The two goals we conceded in the second half were very poor and cost us the game."
