Braintree Town 1-0 Southport

Braintree made it back-to-back wins as they overcame struggling Southport at the Amlin Stadium.

The hosts made a bright start and were ahead inside half an hour as Dan Sparkes nestled a low drive into the bottom corner past Andy Coughlin.

Alex Woodyard and Jamie Allen both wasted chances to extend the lead in a convincing Braintree display.

Southport failed to register a shot on target and have now lost four of their opening five games.
