Colchester   2 - 1   Southampton

Colchester 2-1 Southampton

Colchester 2-1 Southampton

Colchester saw off Southampton to seal their fourth successive win and move up to joint-third in League One.

The U's took the lead when Kevin Lisbie picked out the on-rushing Anthony Wordsworth, who coolly slotted home.

Substitute Papa Waigo N'Diaye had an effort chalked off for offside before Southampton went further behind when Steven Gillespie struck from 12 yards.

Lambert pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in the 90th minute after Dean Hammond had been fouled.


Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"I'm thrilled as it has been a difficult few days.

"We had Southend away and there was plenty of emotion in that one and we knew this match would be our biggest game.

"But that is a mark of how far we have come, as all our games are big now."

Southampton manager Alan Pardew told BBC Radio Solent:

"We bossed large periods of this game and were the better the side but (conceded) two poor goals on our part... and unfortunately that's been costly for us this season.

"We put a gallant effort in, got a goal right at the death but we deserved more than one.

"We've still got a lot of work to do, we're not a playoff side yet. We've got to make up this difference against teams that are going to win, but we're going to give it a good go."
