Stockport 1-2 Colchester

Clive Platt's well-taken late strike secured a win for Colchester in Paul Lambert's first game in charge.

Stephen Gillespie missed a chance after just 10 seconds, but the U's went in front after 20 minutes when Platt crossed for Perkins to side-foot home.

But Leon McSweeney crossed for Matty McNeil - later stretchered off with a head injury - to nod home an equaliser.

But Platt pounced from close range after latching on to a neat flick from David Perkins to sink Stockport.
