Southport 0-2 Barnet

John Akinde
Akinde's goal sealed all three points for Barnet

Two first-half goals lifted Barnet to the top of the Conference as they earned a comfortable win at Southport.

Lee Cook scored a superb opener, beating two defenders before firing a shot over home keeper Daniel Lloyd-Weston that dipped under the bar.

John Akinde added the second before half-time, with a curler just inside the right-hand post.

Charlie MacDonald was a constant threat for the Bees as Barnet held onto their lead at a rain-soaked Haig Avenue.
