Swindon Town 1-2 Colchester United

Colchester United recorded their third consecutive win in League One with a narrow victory at Swindon Town.

George Moncur gave the U's an early lead from 12 yards, but Wes Thomas fired in a leveller from close range.

United retook the lead as Callum Harriott collected Marvin Sordell's pass and slotted past Ty Belford.

Nicky Ajose hit the post and Raphael Branco had a late header cleared off the line for the Robins, but Colchester clung on to secure the three points.
