Three all thriller at Colchester

In a lively game in Essex, Brentford recalled David Hunt and Marcus Bean to their starting eleven but were only able to name six substitutes due to a spate of recent injuries.

However the gallant visitors raced into a 2-0 lead in the first half with David Hunt firing home the first and then turned provider - centering for Leon Legge to plunder home from close range.

Hunty then had radar issues as he put the ball into his own net before Colchester equalised through Wordsworth deep into first half stoppage time.

If Brentford had the better of the first half then it is fair to say that Colchester were the dominant side in the second half - however Charlie Macdonald scored an absolute cracker of a goal from a Diagouraga pass to put Brentford back in front. Well worth trying to catch on TV later tonight.

The Bees were unable to hold on for all three points however as U's midfielder David Prutton fired home with fifteen minutes to go. Colchester then pressed heavily for a winner - forcing numerous late corners - but Brentford held out for a useful point which lifts them to 13th in the table on 44 points.

Bees - Chesney, Kev, Legge, Osborne, Wood, Hunt, Bean, Diagouraga, Weston, Mac (Cort 90), Strevens

Subs - Price, Bennett, Foster, Ainsworth, Saunders
