Half-time at the JobServe Community Stadium…

Colchester United 2-0 Southend United

Southend already look down and out as Colchester bossed the opening period.

U’s ahead on the half-hour mark. Oxley spilled Pell’s strike – Folivi on hand to pick-up the pieces.

And it was 2-0 seven minutes later. This time, Pell rifled home after Chilvers’ flag-kick was only half-cleared.

It’s a long way back for Southend – the National League now looming large.
