Notts County   2 - 0   Colchester

Notts County v Colchester

Notts County 2-0 Colchester

Notts County eased any relegation fears with a comfortable win over Colchester.

The U's David Mooney went close early on as his 25-yard chip beat Magpies goalkeeper Stuart Nelson, only to clip the post and bounce wide.

Notts then wrested control of the game and went ahead when Alan Gow set free Craig Westcarr, who poked the ball past Mark Cousins and tapped home.

It was 2-0 soon afterwards when Nathan Clarke deflected Connor Clifford's corner into his own net.


Notts County assistant manager Alex Rae said:
"We went about our business quite well.

"We put the two new boys in the middle of the park and we obviously got some good movement up front and it worked quite well for us.

"I think on the the night he [Kevin McDonald] dictated the whole match from start to finish."

Colchester United manager John Ward told BBC Essex:
"The second half was the better level, but the first half was disappointing for us.

"We started really well and could have had a couple of goals in the first few minutes.

"At half-time we made a couple of changes and we had more of the ball, but without really hurting the opposition much. We are not clinical enough at times."
