Sean Murray scored one goal and made another as Colchester ran out winners over visitors Mansfield.Mikael Mandron and Brandon Hanlan both went close for the Us early on, while at the other end, Will Atkinson’s diving header sailed just wide. Colchester took the lead just before the half hour through Murray, who slotted home a low 20-yard shot after Kyel Reid had laid a free-kick off to him.

And the hosts went further ahead five minutes later through Mandron, who brilliantly glanced home Murray’s delightful ball at the far post.Mansfield pressed hard for a route back into the game, with Danny Rose’s spectacular diving header flying just over and Sam Walker pushing away Alex McDonald’s powerful effort.With the clock ticking down, Murray was denied by Conrad Logan and sliced wide from a good position late on as Colchester claimed a notable victory.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsColchester1Walker2Jackson26Inniss6Kent22Vincent-YoungSubstituted forEastmanat 20’minutes7Wright8Loft16Murray17ReidSubstituted forComleyat 55’minutes19MandronBooked at 71mins21HanlanSubstituted forKabambaat 81’minutesSubstitutes14Comley15Kabamba18Eastman24Slater27Odelusi28Guthrie29GilmartinMansfield1Logan10AndersonBooked at 61minsSubstituted forMellisat 64’minutes5Pearce18Mirfin19Hunt7MacDonald24Butcher11AtkinsonBooked at 65mins21Sterling-JamesSubstituted forBennettat 45’minutes32Rose23HemmingsSubstituted forAngolat 65’minutesSubstitutes2Bennett4Digby8Mellis9Angol12Olejnik15Spencer22HamiltonReferee:John BusbyAttendance:3,262Match StatsHome TeamColchesterAway TeamMansfieldPossessionHome51%Away49%ShotsHome9Away14Shots on TargetHome3Away5CornersHome4Away3FoulsHome16Away9Live TextPosted at Match ends, Colchester United 2, Mansfield Town 0.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Colchester United 2, Mansfield Town 0.Posted at 90’+1′ Attempt saved.
