Lisbie Lands 12-Yard Thunder - Twice!


Kevin Lisbie showed some true tenacity in firing home a super penalty salvo to seal a 2-0 victory against Hartlepool United.

The striker put in a confident performance as makeshift winger because Aidy Boothroyd paired powerhouse duo Clive Platt and dangerous-looking new signing, Kayode Odejayi up front.

Colchester were awarded a hat-trick of penalties, all taken by Lisbie, which helped them on their way to a win during Boothroyd`s home bow.

Having missed the first with thirty-eight minutes gone, he converted when given the chance to atone for his error five minutes later. Lightening Lisbie also struck again from twelve yards out when another spot-kick came their way.

Two good first-half saves from goalie Ben Williams also ensured he kept a clean sheet.

There was a rousing minuet`s applause before kick-off, too, in respect of the efforts made by the town`s troops away in Afghanistan.

A full match report will follow later on Vital Colchester...

Top stuff from Lis! Certainly takes a brave man to step up minutes after missing. . .

I agree. Can see what he was trying to do with the first one, though!
