Colchester United hosted Grimsby Town in League Two on Good Friday and we had live updates and all the best reaction in our matchday blog from the Jobserve Community Stadium.
Colchester United breathed new life into their flagging play-off bid, with a home victory over Grimsby Town on Good Friday.
The U’s had slipped to five points adrift of the top seven, following a run of five defeats in six outings.
But Frank Nouble’s 25th minute winner against the Mariners, combined with a surprise 3-1 home defeat for seventh-placed Exeter City at the hands of Crawley Town, saw the deficit cut to just two points, with three fixtures remaining.
In truth, the U’s should have scored three or four goals, not just the one bagged by Nouble. But it was enough to keep their season alive.
