Colchester 1-0 Peterborough - highlights

George Moncur booked Colchester's place in the third round of the FA Cup with a dramatic last-minute winner against Peterborough.

Posh had a great chance to win a game of few chances when Michael Bostwick was fouled by Sanchez Watt in the area.

But Sam Walker kept out Aaron Mclean's penalty and within moments the U's broke for Moncur to coolly slot home.

The U's gave a debut to Kaspars Gorkss and he made a fine block to deny Mclean before the late drama.
