Southport 0-3 Hereford United

Hereford picked up their first away win since early August with a comfortable victory at Southport.

The visitors took the lead early on when Dominic Collins headed home Damon Lathrope's left-wing cross.

Frankie Artus' corner was nodded in by Michael Rankine before Ross Dyer sealed all three points when he gathered Sam Smith's pass to coolly slot home.

Southport were looking to avoid a second defeat of the week but were unable to find a consolation.
