Match ends, Southport 1, Eastleigh 2.
Eastleigh scored two late goals as they came from behind to secure a dramatic victory at lowly Southport.
The Sandgrounders looked to be heading for their first win in six league games after John Marsden nudged in Richard Brodie's knock-down from six yards.
However, Joe Partington levelled when he nodded in Jai Reason's free-kick.
Reason secured all three points for the Spitfires when his deflected effort looped into the net to leave his side three points outside the play-offs.
