Two late goals from Anthony Malbon, what a super strike?, and Ryan Rowe came in addition to the first half goal from Michael Gash that had given us a somewhat fortuitous lead. Southport equalised early in the second half with a superb strike from Danny Hattersley but come the ninetieth minute it was game over, in our favour, and the lead at the summit extended by three points.
We should be at full strength for the visit of Woking tomorrow in this game that has been re-arranged from January when it became our only home game to fall foul of the proper winter weather. This March winter also made this game a possible cancellation too but the slow signs of a thaw have now appeared and the game should go ahead if temperatures continue to rise has they have been this evening.
Woking will also be at full strength too following the extra breathing space given to them following the cancellation of their game at Nuneaton on Saturday afternoon. That game has now been re-arranged for this Thursday coming.
They should have Lee Sawyer available for selection following the completion of his two-match ban while Billy Knott has now recovered from injury. Sawyer scored the first goal in the 2-2 draw at Kingfield back in November but we hit back with two goals from Nathan Blissett, now on loan at Cambridge Utd, before Bradley Bubb bought the game back level.
That night was the last time we drew a game and since then we have only lost three games but won twenty. An impressive record by any stretch of the imagination.
I think we'll be continuing that enviable run at Aggborough tomorrow evening and at the same time keeping an eye on the other important games also being played. Newport are at Southport and we saw on Saturday that the home side are very useful and long overdue a win that I think they'll get.
Grimsby are at Hartlepool to play Gateshead and that could also go in favour of the 'home' side.
Lastly Mansfield may be entertaining Nuneaton but the game looks to be in doubt due to heavy snow in the Nottingham area. If it does go ahead I have to say that Mansfield are favourites to win but Nuneatons form has improved since we beat them the other week and they have yet to lose any of the five games played since. They could battle it out for a share of the points.
So there we have it. One point for Mansfield, no points for both Newport and Grimsby and magic for the Harriers.
