Macclesfield Town 3-0 Southport

Macclesfield maintained their unbeaten home record this season against poor travellers Southport.

Luke Waterfall put the Silkmen ahead after just nine minutes with a superb volley from a Waide Fairhurst corner.

Paul Turnbull then doubled their advantage from a free-kick and Waterfall added the third with a header just before half-time.

Ross Dyer tested Macclesfield keeper Rhys Taylor with a header but Southport slipped to a third straight defeat.
