League 1 - U's 2-3 Crewe
Weston Homes Community Stadium
The Colchester survival bid in league 1 took a crushing blow at the weekend with a good run ended against relegation rivals Crewe who edged us out in a five-goal thriller.
A half time lead was lost with Crewe roaring back into the game with a blistering three-goal burst inside of 15-minutes to see them, ultimately, to the three-two win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday....
With both sides having first half chances, with none taking, it was looking as though it would be a goalless first half until Porter (45+1) collected a Briggs pass to fire home in first half injury-time.
A Crewe revival was threatened but after Porter went close to doubling our lead Jones (68) made it one-one at the midway point of the second half, five minutes later Ajose (73), heavily involved in the equaliser, made it two-one with Grant (81) scoring the decisive third in the final 10-minutes.
Ipswich loanee Marriott (84) came off the bench to pull a goal back three-minutes later but it wasn't enough with Crewe going home with a three-two win.
