Former Fulham reserve striker Richard Peniket hit his first two goals for Tamworth as they recovered from three straight defeats to beat Southport.

Tamworth led on 12 minutes through Richie Baker's penalty after Matt Flynn had fouled Lateef Elford-Alliyu.

Osayamen Osawe headed the visitors level from Aaron Chalmers' cross.

Elford-Alliyu's shot deflected off Luke George for an own goal to restore the Lambs' lead before two left-foot strikes from Peniket sealed victory.
