The match will kick-off at 7.45pm at the Pure Stadium and a live stream of the match is available from Southport’s website by clicking here.

A victory for the Mariners would see them match their run in the FA Cup from three seasons ago, when they defeated the likes of Darlington and York City before falling at the hands of Hartlepool United.

They know they are in for a difficult encounter with National League North side Southport, though, who knocked them out of the Buildbase FA Trophy last season.

After a 2-2 draw between the teams at 1st Cloud Arena, Southport prevailed 3-1 in the replay to claim their place in the next round.

Shields duo Jason Gilchrist and Nathan Lowe are both former Southport players, although the latter is unavailable for this game because of a knee injury.

Should the scores be level after 90 minutes, the tie will go directly to a penalty shootout, with no replay to be held.
