Colchester   3 - 0   Swindon

Colchester 3-0 Swindon

Colchester 3-0 Swindon

Anthony Wordsworth's double strike boosted Colchester's play-off challenge and dealt a blow to Swindon's hopes of automatic promotion.

The home side took the lead through Ashley Vincent, who fired in at the third attempt from David Prutton's fine pass after shrugging off Alan Sheehan.

Wordsworth swept home from the edge of the box after Kevin Lisbie's pass.

And Wordsworth added his second in stoppage time when he played a one-two with Lisbie before finishing coolly.


Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"It's about hanging on in there when you're in a slump and afterwards the relief and delight amongst the players was fantastic and plain to see.

"So we going into our next game full of confidence and we definitely feel that we're back.

"It's a huge result for us, it really is a massive result."
