Saturday 11 February 2017 19:32, UK

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

Colchester boosted their play-off chances with a deserved 2-1 win over Barnet.

The hosts suffered a double injury blow early in the game when Frankie Kent and Lloyd Doyley were both forced off.

But they took an 18th-minute lead through Kurtis Guthrie, who netted with a low 25-yard drive after being found by Denny Johnstone.

Barnet goalkeeper Josh Vickers denied Craig Slater and Alex Wynter also went close, while at the other end Sam Walker produced a fine save to deny Curtis Weston from close range.

Colchester doubled their lead in the 42nd minute when Brennan Dickenson squeezed home his shot.
