Colchester had to settle for a point in their final game of the season after Paul Hayes' second-half brace brought Scunthorpe level in an entertaining draw.

Hayes hauled the Iron back into the game after Nigel Adkins' side conceded two goals in the first three minutes of the second half to leave them trailing the U's 3-1.

Kevin McLeod had given the visitors the lead after 11 minutes but Jonathan Forte equalised just three minutes later.

Scott Vernon's overhead kick and McLeod's second of the game after the break had looked like consigning the Glanford Park side to defeat before Hayes pulled one back after 67 minutes.

The 23-year-old then completed the comeback eight minutes from time when he lashed home his eighth of the season to share the spoils in what will be a League One fixture next season.
