Altrincham 2-0 Southport

Altrincham scored a goal in each half to end their four-game winless home run in a 2-0 victory against Southport.

Nicky Clee's goal from 12 yards out came against the run of play after Stuart Coburn had denied Connor McCarthy and Steven Hewitt.

Southport were unbeaten in six and Coburn had to be at his best again to deny Charlie Joyce.

Jordan Sinnott made sure of the points when his 20-yard free-kick flew past Tony Thompson on 71 minutes.
