While Colchester United recorded a solid win 3-0 against Hereford last night, several ex-U`s players were in action across the other games in the League Cup First Road...
Goalie Dean Gerken, selected in goal for Bristol City after England arrival David James was rested, endured a torrid time. The formally popular U`s stopper conceded three goals in Essex back at the club, Southend, where he first played youth football.
Forward Clive Platt, starting for Coventry on his full debut after Saturday`s substitute cameo against Portsmouth, also had a dismal night but by accounts was simply unlucky not to have opened his Sky Blue account. Aidy Boothroyd`s new charges slipped up against Morecombe, succumbing 2-0.
Midfielder Hogan Ephriam started for Queen`s Park Rangers but also ended the night on the losing side as his XI went down 3-1 at the first hurdle of the competition, losing 3-1.
One-time Colchester and Notts County man, Johnnie Jackson, was an used sub for Phil Parkinson`s Charlton. They faced Shrewsbury in an exciting 4-3 encounter, as the visiting Addicts surrendered four goals and flounced out despite seemingly to have amassed an unassailable lead.
A non-featuring role also befell another unused player, Jamie Cureton. The former cult-hero sharpshooter is currently Exeter`s number twelve and attempting to win permanent terms with the club, following his summertime release by Norwich City. He watched his new side suffer at the hands of Ipswich, who triumphed after extra time, 2-3.
Defender Adam Virgo also played in a narrow loss, as his new side for this season Yeovil lost by a single goal against Crystal Palace.
There was though a winning result for Paul Lambert and Norwich, however, as Gillingham capitulated 4-1. The creative David Fox, who was booked, played more than three-quarters of the tie before coming off as a second-half substitute.
