Burnley slipped to their third consecutive home defeat this afternoon, as newly promoted Colchester took a 2-1 win away from Turf Moor.

Quite how that result came to be remains a mystery, as the Clarets put in a dominant performance, only to leave the game with nothing.

Goals from Watson and Iwelumo put Colchester into a two goal lead, before a late Andy Gray goal halved the defecit, but the visitors held on to record their second win of the season.
