Stevenage 3-1 Southport
Two late goals sealed a win for 10-man Stevenage and condemned bottom club Southport to a sickening defeat.

Paul Tait put Southport ahead in the 25th minute when he slotted into the bottom corner before Stevenage hit back through Jon Nurse's close-range effort.

The hosts went down to 10 men after 62 minutes when Santos Gaia was dismissed for an awful challenge on Mark Duffy.

Mark Beard's 25-yard thunderbolt secured victory before Mark Birch's own goal completed Southport's misery.
