COLCHESTER United crashed 5-1 tonight to promotion-chasing Derby County at Pride Park.

The U's trailed 3-0 after 30 minutes through goals by David Jones, Arturo Lupoli and Giles Barnes.

They threatened an unlikely second-half comeback when Johnnie Jackson headed home a Karl Duguid cross, but a Steve Howard penalty and a Chris Barker own goal sealed the U's biggest defeat of the season.
