Braintree Town 0-2 Southport

Substitute Amadou Bakayoko scored a debut goal to wrap up a late victory for Southport at Braintree Town.

Joe Connor went close for the visitors early on, volleying over from 12 yards, and Luke Foster forced a fine save from home goalkeeper Nick Hamann.

Luke George put Southport ahead with 21 minutes left when he struck from the edge of the box.

And Bakayako, who joined on loan from Walsall on Thursday, diverted in Richard Brodie's cross to seal the win.
