Follow all the action and reaction as we bring you live coverage of Colchester United’s EFL League Two match against Barnet at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Alex Nicholls grabbed the only goal of the game to secure all three precious points for Graham Westley’s strugglers.
Nicholls controlled John Akinde’s lay-off and kept his composure to sweep home a low shot beyond keeper Sam Walker and in at the far post.
For the second weekend running, John McGreal’s U’s under-performed, just as they had done at Crewe when they again endured a 1-0 loss.
“It was a thoroughly disappointing performance,” said McGreal.
You may also want to watch:
“We tried to build up a tempo from minute one, but it did not work.
“It was very nip-and-tuck, conditions were difficult (very windy) and the pitch was not the best, but it was a very poor performance.”
