RESULT Southport 3 Nuneaton Town 1

Southport extended Nuneaton’s dismal run of form with a comprehensive win in the Blue Square Bet Premier.

Nuneaton, who have not won in six games, went behind when Chris Lever scored from the spot after Ben Ford handled in the box.

Simon Grand doubled the lead, volleying in Shaun Walley’s cross, before Chris Almond struck sweetly from 18 yards.

Adam Walker’s late effort from close range was no more than consolation for Boro, who now lie 22nd in the table.
