A goal early in each half, by Sammie Szmodics and Frankie Kent, ensured that Colchester United’s play-off interest will be extended into the final day of the regular season.

The U’s produced a terrific performance to beat the promotion-chasing MK Dons, whose hopes of an automatic promotion spot took a big hit.

Most of the U’s rivals for the final play-off berth also won, but John McGreal’s men will still be in with a shout of snatching a top-seven berth, at champions Lincoln City next weekend.
