Colchester   5 - 1   Exeter

Colchester v Exeter graphic

Colchester 5-1 Exeter

Steven Gillespie scored twice as Colchester routed nine-man Exeter City.

Daniel Nardiello's far-post finish gave the Grecians the lead, but Gillespie made it 1-1 when he flicked in Matt Heath's header from a corner.

Steve Tully and Scott Golbourne were sent off for fouls on Ashley Vincent. Golbourne's resulted in a penalty scored by David Mooney.

Vincent finished from Lloyd James' pass, Gillespie slotted in and Andy Bond made it five from close range.


Colchester United manager John Ward told BBC Essex:
"Absolutely enjoyed it as did the supporters, I think it is a reward for everybody's patience, particularly the team and the supporters.

"Even at 1-0 down it was a test for the team, how were we going to deal with this situation.

"We lifted our game and at halftime we talked about keeping the pace of the game going."

Exeter manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:
"The second red card was the decisive moment, if it wasn't hard enough going 3-1 down and having a man sent off is curtains really.

"It was a bad day although I have very little to complain about with the players - they did a fairly decent job.

"The circumstances left us with nine men for the last 20 minutes and it was very hard for the players."
