Colchester 1-6 Stevenage

Stevenage recorded their biggest win of the season as they thrashed Colchester.

Robin Shroot put the visitors ahead with a tap-in before Chris Beardsley's 25-yarder made it 2-0.

The U's scored through Ian Henderson's header but Michael Bostwick's 30-yard effort and Scott Laird's chipped finish put Stevenage in total control.

Boro substitute Luke Freeman got the fifth with a powerful close-range strike and Joel Bryom finished off the rout after a fine individual run.
