COLCHESTER United boss Aidy Boothroyd admits he didn't foresee his side's stoppage time winner at Hereford this afternoon.

The U's are in the third round FA Cup draw following John-Joe O'Toole's 93rd minute goal - the on loan Watford midfielder scoring with virtually the last kick of the game.

The goal was harsh on the League Two side hosts who more than matched their Essex visitors.

“My mind was turning to Tuesday night with about 20 minutes to go,” admits Boothroyd, whose side travel to Brentford in midweek.

“I thought it was going to be one of those days. The cameras were here, the rain was coming down and I was thinking Hereford were going to have another Ronnie Radford moment.

“I'm pleased with how professional we were. We played right to the end and that's a mark of a good team.”
