Leeds United defender Stephen Warnock has hailed the performance of Southport against Derby County on Saturday.
Conference Premier outfit Southport lost the FA Cup third-round tie at the IPro Stadium, but they have a good account of themselves.
Indeed, it was Chris Martin’s injury-time penalty that proved to be the difference between the two sides, as Derby won 1-0 to progress to the fourth round of the competition.
Warnock was following the match and was impressed with how Southport played against Championship high-flyers Derby.
A great effort by @southport_fc today! Nearly a great result. Hopefully they can take that form into the league.— Stephen Warnock (@StephenWarnock3) January 3, 2015
Leeds are in FA Cup action on Sunday when they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
