GALLERY: Colchester United edge out Exeter City in dull play-off match
Colchester United were able to edge out and beat Exeter City 1-0 thanks to a Cohen Bramall free-kick.
Colchester and Exeter qualified for the Sky Bet League Two play-offs after the season was ended early due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This was to be the first EFL fixture after all leagues were suspended back in March following on from the Premier League starting last night.
While play-off matches can be exciting due to how much is on the line, this was not one that is going to live long in the memory. Perhaps it was the three-month break and limiting training time before the match or the fact these sides were difficult to separate in the regular season, but it ended up being a rather dull match.
But in the end, Colchester were able to get the lead. They did do most of the attacking but failed to break through the tough Exeter match for most of the game. However, Cohen Bramall had a free kick on the right of the box and his cross-come-shot curled into the net, giving Colchester the advantage.
