Peterborough 2-1 Colchester & Highlights

Peterborough United
2 - 1

London Road


Attendance: 5,339


Colchester's League 1 season continued with a defeat against Peterborough at London Road on Saturday.

This after it had all started so well for Colchester having taken the lead, however within five-minutes that lead had been wiped out and a deficit faced and that, a two-one loss, is how it ended for the U's.

On the half hour Bonne (30) headed a Massey cross into the back of the net to give Colchester the lead but within a minutes Maddison (31) beat U's 'keeper Parish to make it one-one, was it a cross or was it a shot!

There wasn't any doubt about the winner though with Maddison (34) firing home from 20-yards.

These were the match highlights

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Blackpool 0-2 Rochdale
Bradford 1-1 Shrewsbury
Bury 2-2 Swindon
Millwall 0-4 Coventry
Oldham 1-0 Fleetwood

Port Vale 1-1 Gillingham
Scunthorpe 2-0 Crewe
Sheff Utd 2-0 Chesterfld

Sunday 16th August
Wigan 0-0 Doncaster

Looking at these results the stand out one was definitely the Coventry win at Millwall, with Blackpool's misery continuing with Rochdale beating them at Bloomfield Road.

Coventry, who have started the season well, look to have a real goalscorer on their hands with Newcastle teenage loanee striker Armstrong taking his tally up to four-goals for the club in the opening week included two at the Den on Saturday in this four-nil win for the Sky Blues.

All of that after Millwall missed an early penalty chance to take the lead!

Blackpool, even at this stage, look likely to be a stone that continues to sink following Premier League relegation a few years back and Championship relegation last season, just five-years ago they topped the Premier League however it's looking ominous that a place in League 2 next season already awaits them....

Colchester are back at the Weston Homes Community Stadium for more action this midweek with a home game against Oldham on Tuesday.
