Colchester United’s nine-game unbeaten run in League Two came to a halt at St James Park on Saturday, as a buoyant Exeter City side, inspired by the outstanding Ollie Watkins, scored two late goals to seal a 3-0 win.

Colchester United boss John McGreal described today’s 1-1 draw at bottom club Newport County as a “hard-earned point.”
