Stephen Warnock impressed with Southport’s performance v Derby County in FA Cup

Leeds United defender Stephen Warnock enjoyed Southport’s performance against Derby County in the FA Cup on Saturday.

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.

Leeds are in FA Cup action on Sunday when they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
