Colchester   2 - 1   Gillingham

Colchester shrugged off the loss of manager Paul Lambert to Norwich by coming from behind to beat Gillingham.

Caretaker boss Joe Dunne saw them fall behind early when John Nutter cut the ball back for Curtis Weston to tap in.

Colchester equalised before half-time through Scott Vernon, who swept home confidently from Kevin Lisbie's cross.

The hosts scored the winner midway through the second half when Vernon set up Lisbie to fire home and keep the U's top of the league.


Colchester United's caretaker manager Joe Dunne told BBC Essex:

"Any night when you're top of the league is a great one.

"I thought the fans were fantastic and more importantly I thought the players were excellent - especially in the second half.

"We're top of the league, so we'll take that, but we'll still be humble as there's a long way to go."


Gillingham manager Mark Stimson told BBC Radio Kent:

"We came here to win, we didn't win. It was unfortunate again."

"We scored a great goal first goal - worked the ball well. But then unfortunately we gave them a goal, like we did Saturday, and you can't give teams goal because you're not going to win matches."
