Brentford 1-1 Colchester
Colchester goalkeeper Ben Williams was the hero as his side held Brentford to a draw.
The U's took the lead when Steven Gillespie's mis-hit shot was headed in by Ian Henderson.
Brentford piled on the pressure but Williams was on hand to block Myles Weston's header and tip over Karleigh Osborne's effort.
But the Bees' persistence paid off when Sam Saunders curled in a neat free-kick to earn them a point.
