Colchester’s League 1 season continued with another win against Gillingham at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday.

A successful week for Colchester saw them end seven-days unbeaten and on a high with a two-one win over table toppers, at kick-off, Gillingham.

Having already seen Gillingham hit the post Massey (4) then put Colchester ahead but Norris (7) swiftly levelled things up.

The U’s were ahead again before the half hour mark when Charlton loanee Harriott (29) scored.

For the second time this week Preston loanee ‘keeper Jones was the hero again when he saved a McDonald to mean Gillingham lost for the first time this season with Colchester winning back to back games.

Sun 20th September 2015
Bradford 2-2 Sheff Utd

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

Colchester, who hadn’t won in League 1 prior to a win at Sheffield United on Tuesday, followed up that three-two win with a two-one win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against a Gillingham side that, going into this game, hasn’t lost in the league and were top of the table!

Against a Shrewsbury side, that had started to find some form, Crewe collected all three-points in a one-nil win at Greenhous Meadow to end the Shrews’ run and also move the Alex off the bottom of League 1.

Depending on what way you look at it Burton’s win at Swindon was possibly the result of the weekend? The Brewers beating Swindon one-nil, as the did at the County Ground, was a good result in itself with this win taking last season’s League 2 Champions to the summit in League 1 for the first time in their history!

Colchester are back in action on Saturday with a game against Swindon at the County Ground.
