Managerless Colchester United put the loss of Paul Lambert behind them tonight with a 2-1 win over Gillingham.

The U's, who were led by caretaker boss Joe Dunne, came from behind to claim a third successive league victory to stay top of Coca-Cola League One on goal difference.

Curtis Weston gave Gillingham the lead after 11 minutes, at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

However, Scott Vernon fired in an equaliser, seven minutes before the break, after being set up by Lisbie.

And Vernon repaid the compliment midway through the second half, inviting Lisbie to fire home an impressive winner.
