Southport 1-4 Barrow

Byron Harrison continued his impressive form in front of goal as Barrow thumped lowly Southport.

Harrison struck twice in the opening half, the second from the penalty spot, to improve his tally to five goals in five games.

Barrow have been unbeaten during the 29-year-old striker's rich run of form - taking 11 points from a possible 15 - and are now on the brink of the play-off places.

Richie Bennett and Liam Hughes added their names to the scoresheet before second-from-bottom Southport got a late consolation through James Caton.
