Southport 0-4 Braintree Town
Braintree moved to within a point of the Conference Premier play-off places after cruising to victory at Southport.
Sean Marks prodded home Daniel Sparkes' corner early on, while Dan Holman coolly finished for the second.
James Mulley headed in from the far post for Braintree's third just before Southport's Luke George was sent off for a second yellow card.
Holman completed the scoring as he impressively shot into the top-right corner from the edge of the box.
