Colchester United placed themselves back into the heart of the League Two promotion race with a stunning 4-0 win at Northampton Town.

Strikes from Frank Nouble, new boy Abo Eisa, Kane Vincent-Young and Sammie Szmodics came in a clinical attacking display on the road as Colchester closed up once more on the play-off positions.

Photographer Richard Blaxall was on hand to capture all of the action from an uplifting afternoon for John McGreal's side.
