Colchester claimed a first-ever win over Crawley with a deserved victory at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.The U’s took a ninth-minute lead when Sammie Szmodics superbly volleyed home from Ryan Jackson’s cross.And Colchester went further ahead five minutes later when Jackson slammed the ball past goalkeeper Glenn Morris after excellent play by Szmodics had set him up.

The home side made it 3-0 seven minutes before half-time through Mikael Mandron, who nodded in from two yards after Frankie Kent had headed Brandon Comley’s cross back across goal.Tom Eastman and Ryan Inniss combined to clear Panutche Camara’s shot off the line before the break, while Crawley squandered the chance to get back into the game in the 52nd minute when Walker saved Mark Randall’s penalty after debutant Inniss had fouled Josh Yorwerth in the area.Jimmy Smith poked home from a corner in a crowded area midway through the second half to give Crawley hope and Walker denied Smith late on, but it was Colchester’s day.Match report supplied by the Press Association.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsColchester1WalkerBooked at 67mins18Eastman6KentSubstituted forJamesat 45’minutes26Inniss2Jackson4LapslieBooked at 90mins14Comley3KinsellaBooked at 21minsSubstituted forOdelusiat 57’minutes10Szmodics19Mandron15KabambaSubstituted forWrightat 70’minutesSubstitutes7Wright21Hanlan22Vincent-Young23O’Sullivan27Odelusi29Gilmartin35JamesCrawley1Morris2Young22Lelan15Yorwerth19EvinaSubstituted forMeiteat 45’minutes7Boldewijn25RandallSubstituted forDohertyat 64’minutes21Bulman10CoxBooked at 23mins8Smith28CamaraSubstituted forLewisat 45’minutesBooked at 90minsSubstitutes3Doherty5McNerney12Mersin17Djaló20Tajbakhsh24Lewis26MeiteReferee:Graham HorwoodAttendance:2,923Match StatsHome TeamColchesterAway TeamCrawleyPossessionHome42%Away58%ShotsHome16Away11Shots on TargetHome9Away7CornersHome6Away6FoulsHome9Away14Live TextPosted at Match ends, Colchester United 3, Crawley Town 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, Colchester United 3, Crawley Town 1.Posted at 90’+6′ Corner, Colchester United.
