Highlights of the Sky Bet League Two match between Colchester and Exeter.

Exeter extended their unbeaten run to four matches with a deserved 2-1 win at struggling Colchester.

Exeter took a 27th-minute lead through Robbie Willmott, who tapped home Josh Key's low cross from inside the six-yard box to round off a polished move.

Colchester goalkeeper Dean Gerken made two good reflex saves to deny Pierce Sweeney and Joel Randall in quick succession, as Exeter threatened to double their lead.

Frank Nouble headed inches wide for Colchester just before half-time but soon after the break, Matt Jay curled a shot narrowly wide and forced Gerken into another save soon after, before whipping in a free-kick which saw Tom Parkes' glancing header clip the outside of a post.

Exeter doubled their lead in the 64th minute through Ben Seymour, who brilliantly headed home from Key's right-wing cross.
