U's thrash Stevenage to secure biggest win of the season
Colchester United secured a convincing 4-0 win over Stevenage to make it back to back wins in League One.
Two goals from Craig Eastmond and strikes from Jabo Ibehre and Blair Turgott helped the U's register back to back wins.
Turgott gave the U's a tenth-minute lead after Stevenage keeper Chris Day dropped Brian Wilson's cross, under pressure from Jabo Ibehre.
And it was 2-0 less than three minutes later when Ibehre acrobatically volleyed home, after Day had once again struggled to deal with a cross, this time from Luke Garbutt.
Eastmond scored Colchester's third goal midway through the first half when he converted from Turgott's delivery.
And although U's keeper Sam Walker denied Luke Freeman and Luke Jones hit the bar with a header for Stevenage, the U's wrapped up a fine win with 13 minutes to go when Eastmond tapped in a pass from substitute Sanchez Watt, who made his first appearance since August after recovering from injury.
