Port look to hit back.

Byline: SIMON CUTLER

SOUTHPORT boss Phil Wilson is hoping his side can bounce back and deliver the goods at Yeovil tonight in the Conference.

The Sandgrounders sunk to their fifth successive defeat away to Doncaster on Saturday thanks to Paul Barnes' 64th-minute strike.

The Seasiders have now lost eight of their last nine matches with a point at Morecambe their only reward. Fourth-placed Yeovil represent stiff opposition as Port look to win their final two games.

"We have had a lot of tough games recently, " said boss Wilson.

"A lot of the top sides have been in a rich vein of form coming up against us. We have got to try and get a bit of form back before the end of the season."

Wilson was pleased with his side's performance away to Doncaster, despite the result.

"We played reasonably on Saturday without getting any luck.

"It looked like it was going to be a draw when they scored and, when we tried to get back in the game, we didn't take our chances."

Wilson is sweating on the fitness of Chris Lane (ankle) and Steve Jones (hamstring) before naming his team to face the Somerset side.

The Sandgrounders' boss has been left disappointed with his side's results over the past month which has seen them plummet down the league into 17th position.

"I am extremely disappointed but it shows that we need to improve. Players have got complacent and we've gone off the boil."

Wilson has hinted that a major shake-up over the summer, saying:

"I am upset with the way we have finished and we will be doing something in the summer to remedy that."
