Joe Cole scores one and makes one as West Ham United beat Colchester United 2-1 to record their fourth consecutive pre-season win.

West Ham United have won their fourth consecutive pre-season friendly by recording a comfortable 2-1 victory at Colchester United.

The Hammers have now racked up wins against Cork City, Boreham Wood and Bournemouth in the last 10 days.

Joe Cole opened the scoring on seven minutes courtesy of a poor clearance from Colchester goalkeeper Mark Cousins.

The shot-stopper's poor kick hit Cole on the back and then spun into the bottom left corner of the net.

Cole was involved again as the Premier League outfit doubled their lead on 50 minutes.

The England international's corner found James Collins, who guided a precise header just inside the far corner.

Despite the visitors' dominance, Jabo Ibehre managed to head home a consolation goal for Colchester in second-half stoppage time.
