Colchester recorded an impressive opening day win at Preston on Saturday.

Wordsworth (12) scored early on to give the visitors a half-time lead – it was the 2nd half when most the goals came.

Henderson (49) extended the lead early in the 2nd half, although on the hour Mellor (60) brought Preston back into the game. A second from Henderson (65) minutes later extended The U’s advantage again before Coutts (70) reduced the deficit again!

Victory was secured when Odejayi (76) completed the scoring to give Colchester a 4-2 win at Deepdale.
