Colchester United centre-half, Frankie Kent, bemoaned the bad luck of his team-mate Drey Wright following Saturday’s 0-0 home draw against lowly Morecambe.
The U’s stay in the top half of the League Two table, and have now lost just one of their last nine league games, but they so nearly claimed all three points when substitute Wright’s thunderous 25-yard shot thudded back off the bar in the 87th minute.
“We have given him (Wright) a bit of stick, and a bit of banter, saying about how he has not scored as many goals as he should,” explained Kent, who helped the U’s to keep a clean-sheet for a fifth time in those last nine games.
Kent continued: “Drey’s been really unlucky with the strikes that he has put in, hitting the post and bar several times this season.
“I can think of a few of them and obviously today was another of them. Just an inch lower and he would have been a hero today, but that’s the way it goes.
