COLCHESTER United's under-23s slid to a 1-0 defeat in their Professional Development League match at Millwall today.

The Lions scored the only goal nine minutes from time, in the behind-closed-doors encounter at Calmont Road.

Isaac Oloafe steered the ball into the back of the net, securing all three points and maintaining Millwall's unbeaten start to December.
