Colchester had Lorraine Arthur to thank for several crucial blocks of the corner strike, while at the other end Karen Harris went closest, slotting the ball just wide of the post.

Just as time was running out Colchester were awarded another short corner from which Anna Foley slipped the ball right to Sarah Rose, who played the ball back in for Helen Wall to strike past the keeper and finally give Colchester the lead.

The home side stayed firm and held on to an important victory, pushing them up the league table.
