Colchester’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday.

A first win as Doncaster boss, at home, was secured by Darren Ferguson when Donny, with Colchester denied before this, scored in either half through Conor Grant (41) and Andy Williams (64) gave them a two-nil win, which saw the U’s drop to 16th and only five-point above the bottom four now.

These were the match highlights.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 31st October
Bury 4-3 Blackpool
Coventry 3-2 Peterborough
Crewe 1-0 Sheff Utd
Doncaster 2-0 Colchester
Fleetwood 0-1 Chesterfield
Millwall 0-0 Bradford
Oldham 0-1 Burton
Port Vale 2-0 Shrewsbury
Scunthorpe 2-0 Barnsley
Southend 2-2 Rochdale
Walsall 3-2 Gillingham
Wigan 1-0 Swindon

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Bury, Crewe and Walsall.

Many would have expected, at least anticipated a Bury win against Blackpool so the outcome isn’t exactly surprising but this was a seven-goal thriller with the Shakers seeing of the Tangerines four-three to get back on track at Gigg Lane.

Crewe wouldn’t have been expected to beat Sheffield United but the bottom side dealt the Blades’ promotion hopes a blow with a surprise one-nil win at Gresty Road, which boosts the Alex’s survival chances.

The result of the weekend saw the top two battle at the Banks’s Stadium with Walsall ending up stunning Gillingham, who had been two-nil up to come back and score a late winner with the Saddlers going top with a three-two win.

Colchester are back in action with an FA Cup tie against Wealdstone at the Vale Stadium on Saturday.
