Colchester United boss Joe Dunne was delighted with his side’s point in a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United this afternoon.
Dunne enthused: “I thought it was a fair result and a decent point for us.
“The onus was on Sheffield United to come at us in the second half, being the home team, and we showed our resilience.
“It was always going to be a good challenge for us, conceding the goal just before half-time, and we didn’t collapse.
“The previous two seasons we were beaten 3-0 here, but we stayed in the game today,” added Dunne.

“Our goal was a quality goal,” continued Dunne.

“It was a good break from Sanchez (Watt). He seemed to take an eternity to pass it, but that’s the sign of his quality, and it was a quality finish from Sanchez.
“It was a shame we conceded the goal when we did, because we were in control of the game.
“It was a mistake, but I’m not going to criticise Sam (Walker). He has been fantastic for us, and was a big reason why we stayed up last season.”
