9:44pm

James Hanson and Kyle Bennett earned City a vital and richly-deserved victory at Colchester tonight.
Hanson, back after missing the Brentford defeat, announced his return with a trademark header from Matty Dolan’s corner.
And Bennett scored the first goal of his loan spell from Doncaster with a fine finish early in the second half.
Aaron Mclean had his best game in a City shirt and should have broken his own duck but fired wide just before the break.
Andrew Davies also headed narrowly wide as the Bantams cruised past their toothless hosts to ease fears of being dragged into the fight at the wrong end of League One.

9:39pm

That's it and City have three big points!

9:36pm

One more Colchester corner... again defended with the minimum of fuss

9:35pm

And Mclean joins him in Dean Whitestone's book...

9:34pm

A late booking for a late tackle from Gilbey

9:31pm

Fourth official says "four more minutes"

9:30pm

Mclean furious to be given offside as he breaks clear. Clearly feels he was in his own half

9:28pm

Colchester's first shot on target rolls into McLaughlin. It's taken 84 minutes

9:27pm

Sub number two for City - McHugh for Drury

9:26pm

Not to be left out, Davies heads away a Colchester throw with snow on it...

9:23pm

And a thumping header out from McArdle that you could hear in Chelmsford...

9:22pm

Colchester corner...

9:21pm

Here comes that City change. Bennett deserves the cheers and song from the away fans as Thompson replaces him

9:20pm

Colchester now playing three up front

9:20pm

Thompson ready to come on for the Bantams. 12 minutes left

9:16pm

Colchester make a double sub as Bonne and Gilbey replace Bean and Morrison. That goes down well with the locals

9:15pm

Reach has his first shot of the night and Walker saves by his near post

9:14pm

Another corner for Colchester but Watt's shot is blocked by his own man Okuonghae

9:11pm

Scramble in the City box and McLaughlin does well to thwart Bean right in front of goal

9:10pm

Darby gets booked for trip on Watt.

9:05pm

Dolan puts Davies in trouble by passing back to him when the defender's on the ground in the penalty area. But he thuds the ball away in a tackle

9:05pm

Colchester finally applying some pressure on the City goal and win their first corner. But the visitors comfortably see it off

9:03pm

Colchester have the ball in the net .... but it's ruled out for hand ball against Bean.

8:58pm

It's been coming and City are finally 2-0 up! BENNETT bursts through from a throw-in and slams home his first goal for the club from a tight angle

8:56pm

Sears lifts the home fans after nicking possession away from Davies and then Reach. Doyle clears up the danger on the edge of the City box

8:54pm

Mclean again threatening to get in behind the home back four. City not sitting on their lead

8:53pm

The crowd is 2,605 - Colchester's third lowest in the league this season - with 281 from City

8:51pm

Colchester continue to live on their nerves at the back as Mclean nearly picks off a wayward backpass from Eastman

8:48pm

Another big chance for City as Davies heads wide from McArdle free-kick. Should have hit the target

8:47pm

No changes from either side as Colchester restart proceedings...

8:32pm

HT and City lead 1-0. Well worth their advantage but how costly could that Mclean miss prove to be?

8:30pm

One minute of stoppage time

8:28pm

Bennett robs Dickson and sets up Mclean for clear shot on goal. He has to score....

 

He fires wide!!!

8:27pm

Important back-tracking from Davies to nick the ball away from Massey as he chases Morrison's flick-on

8:25pm

Watt goes down under Davies' challenge in the box but there are only half-hearted shouts for a Colchester penalty

8:23pm

Sorry bout the break but Wifi briefly dropped. In that time, Mclean had a shot over the bar

8:21pm

Mclean again with a shot on the turn that Walker smothers

8:19pm

Mclean again with a shot on the turn which Walker smothers. City playing very well

8:18pm

Thumping shot from Mclean plucked out the air by Walker. That ball was travelling...

8:15pm

Bennett drifts inside from the right wing and attempts curler with his left foot that flies well wide...

8:14pm

8:13pm

Drinks break as Doyle gets some treatment from Matt Barrass. Hot chocolate would be nice.... it's getting nippy here!

8:10pm

Drury hangs another deep cross under the bar and Walker needs two takes as Hanson lurks

8:08pm

City first to the 50/50 balls, confidence seems to have drained from the home side

8:06pm

Amazing the difference a goal makes... City have a bit of swagger in their play and Colchester suddenly looking sloppy

8:01pm

And City have the lead... as HANSON thumps his far-post header beyond Walker!

7:59pm

Now City win a corner

7:59pm

Doyle thunderbolt from edge of the box is superbly saved by Walker. That came out of nothing from the City midfielder

7:58pm

Sears has another pop after the ball was well shielded by Morrison. Again it's too high to worry McLaughlin

7:56pm

Surging run from Sears towards the City back four but he lofts shot over from the edge of the box.

7:56pm

A first song from the home fans. We're only 11 minutes in

7:52pm

Neat passing move started by Dickson ends with the one-time Bantam heading wide from Watt's cross.

7:48pm

Nice skill from former Leeds winger Sanchez Watt to bring the ball down from out the sky. The pitch, as Phil Parkinson predicted, is not the best...

7:47pm

The City fans are making themselves heard already

7:46pm

.... and straight away there's a shot from Mclean which forces a save. That's one more shot than he had on Saturday

7:45pm

Parkinson gets generous applause before City get us underway...

7:44pm

Mark Yeates's name among the subs gets a clap from some home fans, who remember him for scoring the first competitive goal at this stadium in 2008

7:43pm

The teams are out and lining up for the hand shakes...

7:37pm

Colchester name the same side that beat Coventry on Saturday - their first win in seven games.

Left back Ryan Dickson lines up against the side where he spent a brief loan last season before ankle surgery forced him out.

They are expected to line up 4-2-3-1 with Sanchez Watt and Gavin Massey on the flanks and Freddie Sears supporting Clinton Morrison up front.

COLCHESTER: Walker, Wilson, Okuonghae, Eastman, Dickson, Wright, Bean, Massey, Sears, Watt, Morrison. Subs: Cousins, Eastmond, Gilbey, Olufemi, Vose, Sesay, Bonne.

7:15pm

7:12pm

Hearing that five Colchester players have only just got here after horrendous traffic problems on the A12 near Chelmsford...

6:54pm

6:53pm

And more importantly... we have power again!!

6:52pm

James Hanson and Andrew Davies are both fit to play for City tonight.

But there is no Gary Jones, who is laid low with a virus. Stephen Darby will captain the side in his absence.

Adam Drury makes his debut at left back and Matty Dolan comes in to replace Gary Jones.

Arron Jameson is left out to meet the five loanee quota so youth-team keeper Jack Bentley is on the bench.

 CITY: McLaughlin, Darby, McArdle, Davies, Drury, Bennett, Doyle, Dolan, Reach, Hanson, Mclean. Subs: Bentley, Gray, Thompson, Yeates, McHugh, Bates, Atkinson.

6:36pm

Phil Parkinson is having a good chat with Colchester boss Joe Dunne in the tunnel. Dunne was his youth-team coach when Parkinson was in charge of the U's

6:34pm

... and Twitter is down as well for maintenance. It seems the end of the world is nigh

6:33pm

Slightly worryingly the power has gone down in the press box. Hopefully some bright sparky might be able to get it sorted - otherwise it could get interesting on here late in the game!

6:31pm

Good evening and welcome from the Weston Homes Community Stadium in Colchester as City look to bounce back from two defeats.

It's been a lovely sunny day in Essex but it's going to be a chilly one tonight for the hardy supporters who have made the long journey south.

His all round play is awesome and he is getting closer. Don't be so negative. Hanson went 15 or 16 without scoring last season and look how it ended. Soon as he gets his first the rest will come. Very good player

unbelievable. City win and all some want to do is search out something negative to say. That's three wins in five matches for a manager who doesn't understand football and can't sign players; a team with no ability to play football or score etc etc.

Well done City. Let's back it up on Saturday and start planning for next season.

Hanson for England....

I listened to the match on the radio and it sounded like a different team. They were dominant from start to finish and played an excellent passing game which benefitted many players, in particular McLean. Seems PP got his tactics spot on for this game. McLean did everything but score. Dolan played well and provided the corner for Hans goal. Drury had an excellent game and perfectly delivered the balance to the defence that we have been missing since merediths injury. Hopefully an unchanged team on saturday!

thanks for that report Stevie-C , maybe we went better in mid-field with Jones missing, hope for the same team on Sat, could be 2 in a row, win's that is.

A good win. I think a mid table finish for a newly promoted side, who lost their leading scorer midway through, would represent a pretty respectable season.

Yes another 3 points would be nice, obviously. As for the rest of your comment .... people used to have a go at Hanson when he wasn't scoring but his play opened up the game for others, now he's scoring as well. Not sure how you can have a go at McLean's performance when by your own admission you weren't there tonight?

Any one who actually made the superb effort of going care to say how he played? I would be surprised if any say he's utter garbage and a waste of money. He'll get a bag full in the future.

Replacing a goal scorer like Nakhi with the opposite is not good enough, I know we got the 3 pts last night which is great but mclean was bought to put the ball in the back of the net, simple

I did go to the game and Mclean played well but should have scored. He was a handful for their defence and almost got through a couple of times with some good running. He just needs to smarten up in front of goal. The entire team were outstanding - the attitude was spot on right from the start and at the end of the day it was a comfortable win.
Colchester were very poor but we made it happen and punished them - much quicker to the ball and we could very easily have won by a bigger margin.
Let's hope we can take this forward into the next game.

The only thing that is simple is you.

Well done, you have a new scapegoat in the team. Someone that can be the focus of your ill-educated bile, even if you only judge based on what you "see" on the Pulse....

mackall smith did all his work.
like i said before, when we win its ok but he needs to score soon.
great result though!
Wow, so when he was at Peterborough you managed to get to all of their games so that you can make an informed judgement on how he managed to score so many.

Please explain where this "entitlement" to criticise any professional comes from. Are you a God? Does Aaron McClean not have any "entitlement" to be treated with respect given the obvious effort that he has put in so far. Three wins in Five matches....and you still find something to moan about.

Don't be so negative. Hanson went 15 or 16 without scoring last season and look how it ended. Soon as he gets his first the rest will come.
