Checkatrade Trophy

Southern Group B

Colchester United 2

Southend United 0

Colchester United claimed an Essex derby victory over rivals Southend United in their Checkatrade Trophy clash tonight, prevailing 2-0 at home.

The U’s took the lead after 39 minutes, when Frankie Kent headed home a long throw from Ryan Jackson.

And the home side extended their advantage shortly after the break, when striker Aaron Collins, on loan from Wolves, finished a fine move by sweeping the ball home on 49 minutes.

It was a game the U’s realistically needed to win to stay alive in Southern Group B of the Trophy, having lost to Southampton Under 21s in their first group clash.

The Saints youngsters were soundly beaten 4-0 by Cambridge United in the other game in the group tonight. The results leave all four teams with a win and a loss from their first two games, so there’s all to play for. The U’s travel to Cambridge on Tuesday, November 13.
