Preston 0-3 Colchester
Preston's dire start to the season continued as Teddy Sheringham inspired Colchester to an easy win at Deepdale.

North End dominated possession but looked toothless in attack, wasting several chances before Kevin Lisbie grabbed the U's opener with a header.

Man-of-the-match Sheringham made it two from the spot after Darren Carter's inexplicable handball in the box.

And Mark Yeates wrapped up the points with a fabulous 25-yard free-kick to prompt a mass exodus from home fans.

  • Preston manager Paul Simpson:
    "We have a relationship at the club where people can speak their mind and say where it is going wrong. But I want people with positive opinions not those who make things personal and have a hidden agenda.

    "We've got the nucleus of a very, very strong squad who all want the same things but unfortunately there are other players who are trying to cause problems.

    "We've got to make sure that this is the lowest point we get to. This is the most disappointed I've felt in a long, long time."

  • Colchester boss Geraint Williams:
    "To be fair it doesn't get any better than that. Deepdale is always a hard place to come to and to come away with a 3-0 win is an excellent result for us.

    "Teddy is class. He always has been and he always will be and he'll never lose that. He doesn't want anything to be different from any of the other players - he's a model professional.

    "Everybody said he would be when I signed him and that is why he is still out there at 41."
