Ameobi Shines As County Hits Colchester United

…Player Rating

Colchester United were beaten 3-1 by Notts County, on Saturday afternoon.

After Drey Wright had given the U’s an early lead, second-half goals from Jonathan Forte, Shola Ameobi and Richard Duffy gave the Magpies all three points at the Weston Homes Community Stadium and condemned the U’s to a second successive home loss.

The result leaves Colchester six points off the play-off places in League Two with three games to go and John McGreal’s men travel to play eighth-placed Lincoln City, next weekend.
