Southport 0-1 Guiseley

Guiseley condemned National League bottom side Southport to a ninth defeat in 11 games with a narrow victory at Haig Avenue.

Rory McKeown's cross-shot hit the bar as Southport made a confident start, but after the break the visitors took control.

Kevan Hurst tested Craig King's handling with a decent effort just after the break, but there was little the Southport goalkeeper could do to deny the 31-year-old's superb volley with 18 minutes remaining.

The victory, which ended a three-match winless run for Guiseley, leaves Southport 10 points off safety with only six matches to play.
