Millwall   2 - 1   Colchester

Millwall 2-1 Colchester

Millwall 2-1 Colchester

Millwall substitute James Henry scored with the last kick of the match to end Colchester's nine-game unbeaten run.

Anthony Wordsworth put Colchester ahead when his free-kick wriggled into the net after taking a deflection off midfielder Marc Laird.

Alan Dunne levelled just after the break with a 30-yard thunderbolt after the visitors failed to clear a corner.

Wordsworth hit the bar in injury time but Henry nicked the points for the home side with a last-gasp free-kick.


Millwall manager Kenny Jackett told BBC London 94.9:

"I thought we were a little slow to get going. Colchester imposed themselves on us quite well particularly in the first half.

"We didn't play our game well enough. It wasn't a massive margin but it was enough to make the difference and, slowly, we clawed it back and put on a bit of a performance in the second half but I still feel we can do better.

"We can certainly start the game better."

Colchester manager, Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"Two very strong teams going at it hammer and tong, both wanted to go and win it. We could have nicked it at the end when Anthony (Wordsworth) hit the crossbar.

"Disappointed, obviously - as we've done all right so far, having won five and drawn four and sometimes you need a good emotional kick to get you going again.

"You look for faults and there wasn't much we could do, we could have won the game in the first 20 minutes, but that's ifs, buts and maybes."
