COLCHESTER United moved back to third place in the table thanks to Kayode Odejayi's first half winner.

Playing on a heavy Huish Park pitch - the venue where the U's memorably secured to the Championship on the final day of the 2005/6 season - this was by no means a classic.

However, Odejayi's fine 38th minute drive proved enough to send Yeovil to only their fourth home league defeat of the season.
