Colchester United 4-0 Stevenage

Colchester cruised to an impressive victory which increased Stevenage's League One relegation fears.

Colchester's Blair Turgott struck from close range early in the first half before Jabo Ibehre volleyed home.

Craig Eastmond side-footed in the home side's third minutes later before notching his second of the match late into proceedings from a tap in.

Stevenage improved after the break and hit the bar through Luke Jones but could not find a consolation.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:

"It's probably as low a point as I can remember having as Stevenage manager.

"The first 45 minutes, where we were lame at 3-0, was very difficult to accept. When you watch a performance you think, it's just not a team of mine out there.

"What really upset me was the way that the team almost rounded on Daysie (Stevenage goal keeper Chris Day) looking for an excuse. That isn't the togetherness that's the Stevenage togetherness, that's not the togetherness that wins you anything.

"You've got to make sure you get winning people with winning attitudes together. There's plenty of them here, but unfortunately they're not necessarily the stronger characters."
