Jennings’ Fine Brace Is A Double Whammy To Southport Hopes

It wasn’t to be for Southport who miss out on a glamour third round tie with Tottenham Hotspur.

It’s Tranmere Rovers who progress to play the Premier League giants after a professional 2-0 victory at Haig Avenue.

The National League North club gave a good account of themselves but they miss out on a game potentially worth over £200,000.

Connor Jennings’ first half double did for Liam Watson’s team in a match live on BT Sport.

His first was an incredible volley which the home side could do very little about.

He was at it again towards the end of the first half, this time from inside the box he found the net and it was a tall order from there for the Port.

They battled valiantly but couldn’t find the goal which could have created a grand stand finish.

Where next?
