Leeds United   2 - 0   Colchester

Leeds 2-0 Colchester

Leeds 2-0 Colchester

Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford scored a goal in each half to end a run of three league games without a win.

Colchester had two penalty shouts turned down before Leeds were awarded a spot-kick after their former defender Matt Heath fouled Luciano Becchio.

Beckford converted it and added his second, and 24th of the season, after Jonathan Howson's shot hit the post.

An offside flag denied Beckford his hat-trick before Leigh Bromby hit Colchester's bar with a late header.


Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"I think in the end, there wasn't any doubt about the result, I think Leeds deserved it on the day.

"We had enough in that dressing room to come and win at a place like Elland Road. Although we worked we didn't do anything with the ball.

"We are a better team than we showed today."
