Colchester United beat Leeds United at Elland Road for the first time in their history, after coming from behind to win this afternoon.

The U's won 2-1 against ten-man Leeds to bounce back immediately from their home defeat at the hands of Hereford United last weekend.

Colchester fell behind ten minutes before the break. Goalkeeper David Lucas' long kick evaded the U's defence and Robert Snodgrass ran on to shoot low past Jimmy Walker from 12 yards.

But Colchester were back on level terms on the stroke of half-time, in controversial circumstances.

Leeds defender Rui Marques was ordered to leave the field after getting blood on his shirt and while he was off the field of play, Dean Hammond headed in Mark Yeates' corner.

Leeds midfielder David Prutton was sent off midway through the second half for a second booking.

And seconds later, Yeates curled a delightful free-kick past Lucas to seal an impressive three points for Colchester.
