Watford started well as Adam Johnson scored after just four minutes, but Clive Platt levelled for the visitors in the 20th minute.
Colchester went ahead a minute after the break as Kevin Lisbie drilled home from 12 yards and the Hornets wasted a golden opportunity to pull level after 61 minutes when Marlon King´s penalty was brilliantly kept out by Dean Gerken.
