A sluggish start cost Colchester United dear as two early goals enabled Oldham Athletic to ease to their third victory on the trot, at the Jobserve Stadium on Saturday.

Goals inside the first quarter-of-an-hour from defender Alex Iacovitti and striker Callum Lang really punished the lack-lustre U’s.

It was the U’s third home defeat on the bounce, following previous home losses to Forest Green Rovers and Tranmere Rovers, and it has put a dent in their play-off hopess.
