Colchester 0-1 Plymouth
Plymouth midfielder Luke Summerfield marked his first start for the club with the winner against Colchester.

Summerfield powered in a 25-yard shot after a poor clearance, although the goal came against the run of play.

The home side had seen Richard Garcia thunder a 25-yard half-volley against the crossbar before Karl Duguid's volley was cleared by Barry Hayles.

Johnnie Jackson went close to an equaliser with a 20-yard shot but Plymouth held on for a hard-fought win.

  • Colchester boss Geraint Williams:
    "I thought we played well, but we just didn't make the most of our chances.

    "We created enough opportunities but just didn't finish them off.

    "We've just got to keep believing. I couldn't fault the effort, we just have to work on our finishing and learn how to go cold in front of goal."

  • Plymouth boss Ian Holloway:
    "When you think how far the fans have come to watch a Tuesday night game it doesn't really make sense and I'd like to thank them all.

    "I was delighted with the win. Colchester have a right to be in this division and they have done well.

    "The boys defended very well and it was a fantastic strike to win it for us."
