Match Preview: Southport Match Preview: Southport

The Nash return to action this Saturday, as John Flanagan’s side host Southport at the Tameside Stadium.

Curzon head into the game on the back of a 2-1 away defeat to York City, as Joe Guest’s goal wasn’t enough to salvage a point.

Southport recorded a point last time out, drawing 2-2 to bottom of the table North Ferriby United last Saturday.

Despite two defeats in the last two for the Nash, their home form has been somewhat impressive with just two defeats in nine league games at the Tameside Stadium.

After a superb start to the season the visitors have also hit a slump in form with no wins in their last eight league games, after losing just once in their first eight.

It’s John Flanagan’s men who currently sit higher in the National League North table, with the Nash in 11th and Southport in 16th.

Curzon will be without second top goalscorer Max Leonard, as the front man left for fellow National League North club, A.F.C. Telford United in the week.

Saturday’s game sees the return of former Nash man, Dan Cockerline as he currently leads the line for the visitors after moving from Barrow at the beginning of the season.
