League 1 - Sheffield United 4-1 U's

Sheffield United
4 - 1

Bramall Lane

10/02/15; 7:45pm

Attendance: 17,162


Colchester's league 1 survival bid, which had been revived, was derailed at the weekend when we lost at the WHCS against Crewe and we suffered defeat against in midweek against Sheffield Wednesday.

A chance to 'get back on track' is what we hoped to do but came away from Bramall Lane having been beaten four-one on Tuesday....

Sheffield United got off to a flyer with Baxter (8) putting them ahead early on but only after Szmodics was denied by a fine save by Sheffield United 'keeper Turner.

Porter, against his former side, was also denied by a Turner save when he did well to keep our his effort before Done (37) beat Walker to end a find move to give the hosts a two-goal lead at the break.

The home side sealed it when McEveley (59) made it three before Szmodics got his goal, but this was nothing but a consolation....

Sheffield United had the final saw when Briggs fouled Coutts in the area to gave them a penalty - Baxter (80) confirmed the points beyond doubt when he made it four-one.

Attention now moves away from this game and turns to our next one against Oldham and we are looking for your view on what way this will go?

Select the option that you want from the list in the poll to your right, but why not also share your thoughts with us on your thinking for that game, and this game itself, with some views below....

This site is looking for an editor (at least a contributor or blogger), so if you're a fan that can offer us a genuine opinion we would love to share it with the masses!
