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

A tight first-round replay turned in Port's favour before the break when the Daggers had Luke Howell dismissed for raising his arms to Luke George.

John Marsden opened the scoring 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 fouled by Matt Partridge.

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

The hosts are only one place above the Conference Premier relegation zone, but have found some form in recent weeks, winning two and drawing three league games, as well as holding the Daggers to a goalless draw in the original tie at Victoria Road.

However, the visitors edged the first period until Howell's 44th-minute red card, with striker Rhys Murphy hitting the side netting with an early diving header and goalkeeper David Raya Martin having to pull off a fine save to keep out Jamie Cureton's shot.

But Howell's push in the face on George after being riled by a challenge by the home player cost the Londoners, who are 22nd in League Two, dear.

Marsden's deflected shot put Port in command and Hattersley wrapped up a memorable victory when he sent away goalkeeper Mark Cousins the wrong way from the spot.
