Colchester United beat non-league Histon 1-0, despite failing to shine once again.
In a goalless first-half, recent acquisition Joel Thomas came close once or twice, as the U’s looked for a break-through.
The U’s tested the Histon back-line regularly during the second-period but it wasn’t until the 82nd minute that a goal arrived.
Substitute Anthony Wordsworth curled a delicate left-footed effort over the wall and into the top-corner to win it fit the U’s.
U’s: Cousins (Williams 46), Maybury, Okuonghae, Baldwin, Tierney, Hackney, Perkins (Wordsworth 61), Hammond (Fox 61), Vincent (Izzet 61), Vernon, Thomas (Platt 46)
Subs Not Used: Holt, Heath, Corcoran, Malton
So what do you think of the U’s pre-season so far?
