Chilvers fires Colchester past Forest Eco-friendly

Colchester returned to winning methods with a hard-earned 1-0 Sky Wager League Two victory to end Woodland Green’s unbeaten league record on the JobServe Community Stadium.

The visitors will be disappointed ahead away empty-handed, having dominated a lot of the possession but having absolutely nothing to show for their efforts.

Colchester’s winner came after simply 69 seconds when midfielder Noah Chilvers nodded in defender Mls Welch-Hayes’ cross unmarked from near range.

Forest Eco-friendly almost levelled after 13 mins through Odin Bailey’s close-range header from Scott Wagstaff’s cross which usually hit the crossbar.

Ebou Adams drove a low chance just wide of the far blog post soon after and the first half had been an open affair that ebbed plus flowed.

Forest Eco-friendly started the second half well plus nearly equalised when Bailey’s free-kick deflected off the Colchester wall plus flew inches wide.

And the visitors came even nearer to scoring when Jamille Matt’s close-range header from Josh March’s combination was saved by U’s goalkeeper Dean Gerken.

Alternative Jake Young came close just for Forest Green late on yet Colchester held out for a thin win.
