Fleetwood Town 2-3 Colchester United

Colchester maintained their slim hopes of League One survival with two goals in the last six minutes at Fleetwood.

George Moncur gave them the lead, but goals by Jamie Proctor and David Ball looked set to confirm relegation with a game to spare.

However, Chris Maxwell misjudged Gavin Massey's cross, then Dion Sembie-Ferris was fouled by Nathan Pond, giving Chris Porter the chance to clinch victory.

The U's are two points from safety and play second-placed Preston next week.
