    Southport’s Buildbase FA Trophy run is over following a 4-1 defeat to Fylde at a windy Mill Farm.

    Last year’s Vanarama National League play-off finalists proved too good for Liam Watson’s side, who’s bad run of form continues.

    From the start, Jim Bentley’s Coasters looked dangerous on the break, as they punished the Port on numerous occasions, securing progress in the competition in the hope of regaining their crown.

    Within six minutes of play, Flyde took the lead as Jordan Williams countered down the left-hand side; slotting the ball past Charlie Albinson into the bottom corner to make it 1-0.

    Liam Watson’s side could only manage half chances in the opening quarter of the match as both David Morgan and Marcus Wood had shots blocked on the edge of the box.

    Soon after the home side were 2-0 up, as Williams broke down the left once again; this time crossing the ball into Dan Bradley who just about tapped the ball past Albinson, who couldn’t stop the ball from crossing the line.

    It was nearly three not so long after, but Southport just about survived, with the ball hitting the cross bar from point blank range.

    With ten minutes remaining of the half, the Port began to find some energy and put the Coasters under pressure.

    First, Zehn Mohammed came close with a header, which just looped over the cross bar; before Morgan tried his luck from distance, forcing the keeper into a good save.

    From the resulting corner, Southport made their chances count, as Jack Sampson rose up to head past Sam Hornby to make it 2-1.

    The Port striker was nearly at it again, but his header this time was easily caught by the keeper.

    Then in the 43rd minute, Fylde re-extended their lead, as Nick Haughton found space on the left side to slot past Albinson to make it 3-1.

    Morgan had a chance to pull one back for Watson’s side, but pulled his effort just past the left post.

    Early on in the second half, Albinson was forced into a save, as he punched away a free kick from close range that was caught in the strong winds on the Fylde coast.

    Despite that, it wasn’t long until Jim Bentley’s side got their fourth, as Haughton shot hit the post and went in, as he bagged his second of the afternoon in the 54th minute.

    Things got worse for Watson’s side, as Marcus Wood left the pitch injured in the 62nd minute, with Devarn Green later departing.

    Fylde could’ve got another, but for an excellent double save by Albinson to deny the Coasters.

    Southport had a few chances to get a consolation, with the best falling to Morgan in the box, forcing Hornby into a good save down to his left.

    After a disappointing afternoon for the Port against higher league opposition, they will be looking for improvements as they return to league action next weekend.

    A board meeting is required to decide the managers future oh! hang on the manager is on the board. Christ as if it wasn't a dictatorship under Clapham it is now.

    Watson has already stated we are a club in transition. He is debunking the delusions of grandeur that prevailed last season with paid staff doing volunteer jobs and the creation of the Chief Executive job.
    Add to that we became, after golden balls departure, a full time club paying part time wages - more fantasy football club.
    Watson knows what's required to escape this league and that job starts when this season ends. The play offs this season are a pipe dream as we'd end up as Chorley mk2 in the National league.
    Patience is required - the core of a half decent team is already in place.
