Despite ending tonight’s game with 9 men, Gillingham, our opponents next Saturday, managed to do us a big favour in beating Brentford 3-2.

Pouton and Clohessy were sent off in the last 20 minutes of the game and both will serve a suspension when we face them next weekend.

Brent Sancho, who we failed to bring in on loan a few weeks ago opened the scoring for the home side after 9 minutes.

Another club competing in the top 6 played tonight. Colchester only managed a 0-0 draw at Doncaster so Swansea remain in 4th position, just a point behind Brentford in 2nd, who now have just 1 game in hand.

Colchester also have a game in hand and sit a below us in 5th with Barnsley 6th.

Next Tuesday, Brentford travel to MK Dons to play their 1 remaining game in hand. Hopefully the Dons can do us another favour, as they beat Southend 2-1 on Saturday.

Colchester’s game in hand is against Hartlepool on Tuesday 11th April, the same day we play Swindon at home.
