Colchester’s League 1 season continued with another defeat, one-nil against Gillingham, at the Priestfield Stadium on Monday.

A ninth successive league defeat means Colchester will end the year rock bottom of League 1 and look to be heading towards a serious relegation battle in the second half of the season again.

The game was won by Gillingham’s Dominic Samuel, and obviously lost by the U’s, when he scored a simple goal with 20-minutes left.

These were the other results.

Monday 28th December 2015
Southend 0-4 Millwall
Barnsley 4-2 Blackpool
Burton 1-0 Swindon
Chesterfield 1-1 Coventry
Crewe 1-2 Shrewsbury
Fleetwood 1-3 Wigan
Gillingham 1-0 Colchester
Oldham 1-2 Doncaster
Port Vale 1-0 Bury
Scunthorpe 1-1 Rochdale
Sheff Utd 3-1 Bradford
Walsall 2-0 Peterborough

We see some good wins as the festive season continued with the most impressive being the Millwall win at Southend when they won four-nil at Roots Hall!

Burton, Gillingham and Walsall all kept up their promotion bids with wins over Swindon, Colchester (as we know) and Peterborough respectively.

Whereas at the other end of the table Barnsley and Shrewsbury ended the year on a high with four-two and two-one wins over Blackpool and Crewe.

Colchester are back in action at the weekend at Oldham.
