Colchester United continued their fine start under Joe Dunne with an impressive 2-0 win at Leyton Orient tonight.

Goals from Anthony Wordsworth and Ian Henderson helped the U's secure their fifth win in six league matches under boss Dunne, at Brisbane Road.

Colchester fully deserved their win over the O's and they played some excellent football in the first half.

Gavin Massey and Brian Wilson went close and although U's keeper Mark Cousins denied Scott Wagstaff and Ryan Brunt, the visitors were the better side.

Colchester took the lead 12 minutes before the break through Wordsworth, who scored from just inside the area after Massey had picked him out in the area.

Craig Eastmond almost doubled the U's lead just before half-time but they scored their second five minutes after the break.

Ian Henderson followed up to score from close range, after the O's keeper Ryan Allsop saved Eastmond's long-range effort.

Cousins saved from Wagstaff again and former U's striker David Mooney also had an effort but the U's almost added a third before the end when Jabo Ibehre fired wide, as Colchester maintained their fine form.
