Harrogate Town v Colchester United – Sky Bet League Two – The EnviroVent Stadium – Report

Harrogate Town 1-2 Colchester United

Colchester United came from behind to win by the odd goal in three at Harrogate Town, easing any lingering Sky Bet League Two relegation concerns.

Jack Muldoon handed the Yorkshiremen an early lead. However, the U’s turned the contest on its head before the interval.
