West Brom 2 Colchester 1

JAMIE Guy scored his first ever senior goal, but it wasn't enough to prevent Colchester United from sliding to another defeat in the Championship.

Guy appeared as an 82nd minute substitute, and he halved the deficit just a few seconds later. The teenage striker pounced onto Kevin Watson's cross to smash home a glorious shot from eight yards out.
