Southport 2-0 Guiseley

Southport edged towards National League safety as they extended Guiseley's winless run to eight league games.

The away side are just three points above the relegation zone, while Southport's first win since 1 March moved them up to 16th place.

Jonny Margetts opened the scoring in the first half with a close-range finish before Craig Westcarr's long-range lob beat goalkeeper Dan Atkinson.

Guiseley's Emile Sinclair went close to scoring when he hit the crossbar.
