Fleetwood Town 2-0 Southport

Fleetwood eased to a comfortable victory against struggling Southport.

The visitors fought back strongly but Matty McNeil saw his effort blocked as they chased an equaliser.

Any hopes of a Sandgrounders comeback were dashed when Steven Connors's excellent run and cross was finished off superbly by Shaun Beeley.
