Southend   1 - 2   Colchester

Southend 1-2 Colchester

Southend 1-2 Colchester

Colchester withstood a fightback by neighbours Southend to secure victory.

Phil Ifil opened the scoring when he headed home Steven Gillespie's cross and Anthony Wordsworth doubled the lead when he curled in a 20-yard free-kick.

Lee Barnard headed in at the far post from Francis Laurent's excellent cross to pull a goal back.

The Shrimpers pressed for an equaliser but saw Barnard beaten by the crossbar and Alan McCormack shoot straight at goalkeeper Ben Williams.


Southend United manager, Steve Tilson told BBC Essex:

"Another game we've lost, we had more chances than them and we gave away two soft goals.

"We keep giving away soft goals and within 11 minutes of the second half we're two goals down. We should have got something out of the game."

Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"It was a hard win and it was a difficult game, we knew that. I emphasised to the players that you have to remain ice-cool and don't get caught up in the excitement of the occasions.

"We are normally quick starters and I thought we did okay, but the second half was terrific."
