DAVIES JOY AFTER LATE PEN DENIES THE BUCKS
UNITED were denied a sixth straight home victory thanks to a 94thminute penalty that cancelled out Marcus Dinanga’s strike.
Rob Edwards’ men wasted several first-half chances, however a Ryan Wilson handball handed the Sandgrounders a last-gasp penalty scored by Nathan Lowe.
Bucks could have led in the sixth minute when Henry Cowans’s corner was headed out to Jordan Murphy but his shot flew just wide.
Murphy was then in again, controlling a Wilson cross before blazing over. Cowans’s set pieces again caused problems, floating a cross into the box before Jonathan Royle slid the ball wide.
Telford led after 40 minutes when an interception by Royle set up a counter-attack with Elliot Newby threading Dinanga in to slot home.
Southport’s new manager Kevin Davies saw a much-improved secondhalf performance with Jasbir Singh forced into an early save before Ross Sykes headed over.
Lowe should have equalised after an hour after Brad Jackson played him through inside the box but his shot was over.
Then in the 94th minute referee Thomas Parsons judged that Wilson had handled a cross and Lowe coolly slotted home the resulting penalty. STAR MAN: Jordan Murphy (AFC Telford United) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
