BBC match report –

A Paul Buckle goal proved enough for Exeter to secure a narrow victory.

Buckle's stunning right-foot 25-yard drive from wide on the right after 60 minutes extended Exeter's unbeaten Conference run to four matches.

And they almost doubled their advantage 10 minutes later, but Adam Stansfield's left-footed shot flew wide.

Southport went close late on when Liam Blakeman connected superbly with James Olsen's inswinging corner but his effort did not find the net.
