THE LNER Community Stadium is one of the biggest draws in National League North - and Southport boss Liam Watson is looking forward to his trip there today.

His side arrive at Monks Cross with the second-worst away record in the division, having failed to pick up a single point from three games on the road this season.

But they are kept off the foot of the away table by the three goals they have scored - two more than AFC Telford United.

Southport are, though, the current bottom side in the division, having yet to register a win of any kind in the league. All three of their home games have ended in draws.

But it would be incredibly dangerous for York to write off their visitors, who are fired up for the occasion.

Watson told the club’s website: “As a player, you want to go to York City. They’ve got a brand-new stadium, big crowd, big-name players.

"It’s a great occasion for us, a learning experience, and we go there to give a proper performance.”

Port come to York still carrying a fair threat. Their nine goals scored is far from the worst record in the division - and just shy of City’s 11 - while their 12 conceded is par for the course in the bottom half of the table.

Marcus Carver and Josh Hmami are doing a decent job in front of goal for the Merseysiders, Carver’s four finishes coming at a goals-per-minute ratio of about one a game.

Both were on target in Southport’s 3-2 loss at Spennymoor Town and in the 3-3 draw against Gateshead at Haig Avenue, with Carver also hitting the back of the net in home games against Gloucester City and Kidderminster.

Where Southport have done well this season is the FA Cup. On Tuesday, they came from 2-1 down to beat 10-man Spennymoor 3-2 in a third round qualifying replay.

They have been landed with a tricky fourth round qualifying tie next weekend, at home to National League outfit Altrincham.
