Big Match Review - Colchester 3 Swindon 0

League One
Colchester United 3-0 Swindon Town
Saturday April 10, Weston Homes Community Stadium, (Att: 5,111)

A second half brace from Anthony Wordsworth helped Colchester restore their top six ambitions as they upset the form book to see off second placed Swindon.

The visitors, buoyed by their recent good run, started brightly, but it was the Essex club who got the first goal after 24 minutes.

Ashley Vincent firing in from an acute angle at the third attempt after twice being thwarted by Town keeper David Lucas.

Aidy Boothroyd's men began to take hold of the game, and extended their advantage in the second half.

Anthony Wordsworth making the most of time and space in midfield to curl home a beautiful strike past Lucas from 25 yards.

That was with twenty minutes remaining on the clock, and there was just seconds left when the young midfielder doubled his tally for the afternoon.

Direct running for Kevin Lisbie split the Swindon defence, and Wordsworth was on hand to stroke home the striker's square ball.

A damaging result for the Robins therefore, who slip to fourth after this loss, but Boothroyd's men are firmly back in the play-off race.
