COLCHESTER United pulled off one of the biggest cup shocks in their history last night with a superb win at Premier League side Crystal Palace.

John McGreal's side triumphed 5-4 on penalties at Selhurst Park, after the Carabao Cup second-round tie had finished 0-0 after 90 minutes.

More than 1,300 U's fans were estimated to have been at the game to cheer their side on.

U's photographer Richard Blaxall captured all of the action and emotion for the Gazette, following a memorable night in South London.
