Alex Fisher is Yeovil's match-winner at Colchester

Alex Fisher's first-half strike secured Yeovil Town their first victory in five league matches with a 1-0 win at Colchester United.
Colchester squandered a great chance to take an eighth-minute lead when Sammie Szmodics' penalty was saved low to his left by keeper Stuart Nelson, after Ryan Dickson had been adjudged to have fouled Kane Vincent-Young just inside the area.
Szmodics dragged a low shot wide of the target soon after but Yeovil took a 21st-minute lead through Fisher, who slotted in from close range from Francois Zoko's assist after Omar Sowunmi had flicked on Dickson's long throw.
Nelson denied Colchester striker Kurtis Guthrie but Fisher was foiled on the stroke of half-time by keeper Sam Walker, who pushed his shot away.
Colchester went in search of an equaliser in the second half and on the hour mark, Nelson made a fine flying one-handed save to push away Liam Mandeville's curling free-kick for a corner.
Nelson also denied both Olamide Shodipo and Frankie Kent late on but the Glovers claimed victory.
