Colchester’s League 1 season continued with another win against Swindon at the County Ground on Saturday.

What a run Colchester are now on! A third win in a row, to extend an unbeaten run to four-matches, was secured at Swindon with a two-one win.

Moncur (3) got Colchester off to a flyer but Thomas (22) made it one-all by the midway point of the second half.

The U’s were ahead again before the break through Charlton loanee Harriott (42), with his second in as many games, with Ajose hitting the post and Branco seeing an effort cleared off the line as Colchester held on to move up to 10th and three-points off the play-offs!

These were the match highlights.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 26th September 2015
Barnsley 2-0 Gillingham
Bradford 0-2 Peterborough
Bury 2-1 Coventry
Chesterfield 1-2 Burton
Fleetwood 1-2 Port Vale
Millwall 3-1 Rochdale
Oldham 1-1 Wigan
Sheff Utd 3-1 Doncaster
Shrewsbury 2-0 Blackpool
Southend 2-1 Scunthorpe
Swindon 1-2 Colchester
Walsall 1-1 Crewe

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Peterborough and Colchester, a few others make you sit up and take interest – even these two weren’t overly surprising as such – but there weren’t really any major surprises as such really?

Graham Westley, who will be under pressure to do a job as his appointment appears to have been made to a ‘mixed response’ at Peterborough, started with a win for Posh! A two-nil win at Bradford saw the home sides unbeaten run ended and not only got Westley off to a winning start but also kept an unbeaten run that Posh had been on going!

I’m not sure we should be ‘surprised’ by another Colchester win really! This win at Swindon makes it three in a row after wins at Sheffield United and the win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against previously unbeaten Gillingham last weekend. This time the U’s saw off the Robins two-one to continue the unbeaten run, which extends to four-matches now.

Colchester are back in action this midweek with another League 1 game against Bradford at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday.
