For the Colchester View :ColUOnline

The home side looked the more likely to score in the opening exchanges, and it was no surprise when Barry Conlon gave them the lead by heading home a Gavin Johnson corner in the 19th minute. Kemi Izzet should have scored a minute earlier but his shot hit the inside of the post and stayed out.

Bracing his Conlon
No Pish taking of his name PLEASE 😉
