Southport eased into the second round of the FA Cup with victory over 10-man League Two strugglers Dagenham & Redbridge.

A tight first half ended with the Daggers having Luke Howell dismissed for raising his arms to Luke George.

John Marsden opened the scoring in this first round replay within five minutes of the restart, collecting a Paul Rutherford pass and shooting in.

Danny Hattersley’s penalty made it 2-0 after he was felled by Matt Partridge.

And Port, who will be Eastleigh in the second round on Sunday, 7 December, had little trouble in seeing out a first win against Football League opposition since 2002.
