Colchester   1 - 0   Oldham

Colchester 1-0 Oldham

Colchester 1-0 Oldham

Danny Batth scored the winning goal as Colchester underlined their promotion credentials at Oldham's expense.

Batth nodded home David Prutton's corner just after the hour to claim his first professional goal and stretch the U's unbeaten league run to five games.

The Latics had earlier come close to breaking the deadlock when Jason Price struck a post with a solid header.

U's keeper Ben Williams denied Pawel Abbott while Price's deflected shot hit the bar, but Colchester held firm.


Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"It was a tight one and this is our biggest win of our season for me because I thought Oldham were really good today.

"To have to make four enforced changes, everything we did during the week went out the window and it was just about putting it together today.

"Danny Batth scored his goal and was absolutely superb, Phil Ifil I thought was exceptional today and I thought everybody pulled together today and that's what you need."
