Northampton 1-2 Colchester

Northampton paid the price for a poor first-half display as Colchester denied them a third straight win and claimed their own second win in five days.

Chris Coyne should have put the visitors in front before Clive Platt did, heading in Dean Hammond's cross.

Three minutes later former Northampton player Paul Reid made it 2-0 with a header from Johnnie Jackson's corner.

Danny Jackman's deflected free-kick in the second half gave the home side hope but they failed to find an equaliser.

Booked: Guttridge, Coke.

Goals: Jackman 53.
