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

    Colchester boosted their survival hopes with an impressive 1-0 win over promotion-chasing Swindon.

    Luke Hannant scored the only goal of the game after 30 minutes when he rose brilliantly to flick a fine header past goalkeeper Sol Brynn from Al-Amin Kazeem's corner.

    Swindon went close early on when Fraser Blake-Tracy's header was tipped over by Colchester keeper Kieran O'Hara.

    But Brynn pulled off a superb save to deny Noah Chilvers and Hannant's follow-up effort was blocked by Remeao Hutton at the near post.

    Swindon had a penalty claim rejected after half-time when substitute Rushian Hepburn-Murphy's cross appeared to strike Tommy Smith's hand in the area.

    Tyrese Shade was denied on the hour by O'Hara, who also made a fantastic stop to foil substitute Jacob Wakeling's header from point-blank range.

    But Brynn pulled off a double save to keep out Hannant and then Kazeem, and the Swindon stopper also made a good save from Samson Tovide.
