U's join Tigers in knockout stages after 2-1 win over their opponents

Colchester United joined Hull City in the knockout stages after beating the Tigers 2-1 at Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The U’s recovered from going behind as Ben Hinchliffe flicked in the opener for Hull at the near post, but the home side levelled two minutes later through Femi Akinwande.

Colchester scored the winner on the hour-mark, with Joshua Pollard heading in from a corner. That means they finished second in Group C on 10 points, behind Hull on goal difference.

Manchester City and Derby County were both three points adrift.
