shares

TWO goals in the last 15 minutes from Jabo Ibehre and Freddie Sears brought Colchester’s dismal losing streak to an end.

After a goaless first half, Ibehre struck after good work by Sears, who then netted the second after George Porter’s fine cross.

It brings an end Colchester’s nine-game losing run and takes the U’s out of the bottom four.
