Watt strike secures U's victory
Sanchez Watt grabbed the winner as Colchester United beat Stevenage 1-0 this afternoon to end their unbeaten league record.
Gavin Massey was denied by Stevenage keeper Steve Arnold early on, while at the other end Mark Cousins palmed away a Filipe Morais long-range effort.
Colchester finished the first half strongly and Jabo Ibehre went close twice before half-time.
Stevenage were reduced to ten men soon after the break when their former Southend midfielder Anthony Grant was sent off after picking up a second booking for a foul on Watt.
And Watt put the U's ahead three minutes later with a superb left-foot strike which flew past Arnold and into the far corner.
Colchester had their chances to add to their lead after that, with Arnold denying both Ibehre and Massey, while Anthony Wordsworth clipped the bar with a free-kick.
Stevenage defender Bondz N'Gala hit the woodwork with a spectacular effort late on but Colchester claimed their third victory in four league games under new boss Joe Dunne.
