Harriers Fight Back For Point: Southport 2-2 Harriers

Harriers fought back from a half-time two-goal deficit to earn a share of the points in a game that both teams finished with ten men.

A strong wind spoiled the game and helped the home team into their lead.  Chris Simm fired them ahead after 16 minutes when the Harriers defence failed to deal with a long ball through the middle of the park and six minutes before the beak Rob Marsh-Evans was left completely unmarked to head in at a free-kick.

Steve Burr changed things around at the break sending on Dave Hankin and Lee Morris.  The change paid quick dividends as Hankin's pass put in Marc Williams who set up Morris to head in his first goal for the club six minutes after the interval.  On 58 minutes home keeper Tony McMillan brought down Morris and was sent off; Chris McPhee firing home the penalty.

Harriers dominated the second half and should have won the game, sub keeper Steve Dickinson saving from Marc Williams on more than one occasion.  Ten minutes from the end Harriers were reduced to ten men when Jack Byrne was sent off for a late challenge on Chris Lever.
