Southport 1-0 Nuneaton Town

Danny Hattersley's late strike earned Southport victory over 10-man Nuneaton, ending a run of seven Conference Premier games without a win.

The visitors started well but Louis Moult's effort was well saved before Richard Brodie went close with a header for the hosts.

Gareth Dean then saw red for Nuneaton after a second yellow card.

The vital goal came when Hattersley connected with Osayamen Osawe's header and found the bottom corner.
