Wordsworth celebrates his opener

Midfielder Anthony Wordsworth scored in either half to give Colchester a 2-0 victory over rivals Southend in the Essex derby.

On a poor playing surface at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, Colchester took a third-minute lead in bizarre circumstances.

Wordsworth met Clive Platt's cross at the far post and the midfielder's scuffed low shot was missed by Southend skipper Adam Barrett on his own goal-line and the ball rolled in.

Scott Spencer and Francis Laurent went close for Southend before half-time but Colchester doubled their lead in the 63rd minute.

The Blues failed to clear David Prutton's corner and after Kayode Odejayi had headed back across goal, Wordsworth tapped in from close range.

Colchester goalkeeper Ben Williams saved from both Southend substitute Matt Paterson and Frank Moussa before Barrett had a goal chalked off, as the Us took the bragging rights.
