Barnet 4-0 Southport

John Akinde scored his 24th goal of the season against Southport

John Akinde scored his 24th goal of the season as Conference leaders Barnet comfortably beat strugglers Southport.

Charlie MacDonald sent a volley past Callum Burton to give the Bees the lead midway through the first half.

Despite Burton's best efforts, Luisma Villa found the bottom corner to go 2-0 up in the 82nd minute.

Akinde's fine finish to Curtis Weston's cross and Sam Muggleton's injury-time header consigned Southport to their fifth defeat in six games.
