Southport 4-3 Eastleigh

Struggling Southport survived the 12th-minute dismissal of Liam Hynes to claim victory over an Eastleigh side who finished the match with nine men.

The hosts went in front in the fourth minute through Andrai Jones, but eight minutes later were reduced to 10 men when Hynes was dismissed for a late lunge on Sam Togwell.

Eastleigh's numerical advantage did not last long as Joe Partington saw red in the 23rd minute and Southport doubled their lead on the half-hour mark through Liam Nolan's finish from a tight angle.

Reda Johnson got one back for Eastleigh two minutes later, but Declan Weeks' fine finish shortly after half-time made it 3-1.

James Constable got a second for Eastleigh, but they had another man sent off in the 69th minute when Hakeem Odoffin was dismissed.

Jamie Allen added a fourth for Southport from the spot six minutes later, but the hosts still had to survive an anxious finish, with Constable grabbing his second of the game four minutes from time.
