Whilst the Bees did pull one back, Freddie Sears' second ensured that the U's were on the brink of safety before the final day on what was one of the best home games since the move to the stadium.

And, in front of a nervous yet expectant crowd, the U's grabbed a quick fire treble to put themselves in a great position and start the party atmosphere at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

They faced the already promoted Bees knowing that a victory would go a long way to keeping the U's in League One.

As the season wound to a close, a couple of home defeats had left the U's needing to secure safety with two games to go.
U's 4-1 Brentford, April 26th

Sanchez Watt grabbed his first goal since signing permanently for the club, but it wasn't until the dying stages that the U's got the goals their performances deserved. Clinton Morrison flicked home the U's second and Freddie Sears the third to secure victory.

The U's were in the midst of their best run of form of the season when the Gills came to town and the home team swept aside their Kent visitors to record a memorable double. U's 3-0 Gillingham, January 11th

They were given a helping hand in the early stages by two Chris Day mistakes, but they capitalised on that to run out comfortable winners as Craig Eastmond grabbed a brace.

Two years previously, Stevenage inflicted the club's heaviest ever home defeat when they ran out 6-1 winners on Boxing Day 2011. Since then, however, the U's have held the upper hand and they made it four wins in a row against Boro in an impressive display in front of a festive audience. U's 4-0 Stevenage, December 26th

A goal early in the second half for the visitors put on the pressure for the U's, but it was that man Macauley Bonne who popped up to score another great goal to secure the points.

However, the Dons own Tuesday night hoodoo - they had struggled to win away from home in midweek games in the past couple of seasons - came back to haunt them as they were two down at the break.

The Dons had become one of the U's bogey teams over the years and they came to Colchester looking to keep pace with the play-off spots. U's 3-1 MK Dons, November 26th

It was a fairytale afternoon for striker Macauley Bonne who, having made his debut four days earlier, came off the bench to power home a header and give the U's a dramatic victory on his eighteenth birthday.

But few would have been able to tell that the U's were on that kind of streak, as they took their visitors to task and put in a fine display in front of a decent crowd at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The U's came into this match without a win in eleven and having been beaten heavily in the Capital One Cup by the Posh. U's 1-0 Peterborough United, October 26th
