Eastleigh 2-1 Southport

Eastleigh snatched a last-gasp victory over Southport thanks to a Dominic Collins own goal.

Jai Reason opened the scoring for the hosts after the break when he curled in a sublime 25-yard free-kick.

Southport were gifted their equaliser when Jamie Collins allowed Joe Connor to nip in and slot past Ross Flitney.

But Eastleigh stole all three points deep into injury time when Collins inadvertently headed into his own net from a Stuart Fleetwood free-kick.
