Southport came back from conceding a goal in the first few seconds to beat Cambridge United


Nathan Blissett gave the visitors the perfect start with a well-taken finish from the edge of the area.


Southport got a goal back early in the second half when Neill Byrne headed home a Karl Ledsham corner.



Once again Shaun Whalley was Southport's savior converting from the spot after he was upended by Harris Dunk.

Southport are now in 13th place in the league on 46 points.
