COLCHESTER United midfielder, Andy Bond, admitted that Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Notts County was a “missed opportunity” to pull well clear of the League One relegation zone.

And team-mate Drey Wright insisted that the U’s had been in “cruise control,” before leaking two late goals at Meadow Lane.

Bond, who set up the equaliser for Jabo Ibehre, said: “It was a missed opportunity, because we came into the game confident we could win.

“We got the equaliser and then started the second half on top.”

Teenage winger Wright, the U’s man-of-the-match, confirmed: “I thought we were in cruise control in the second half, when we were definitely the better side.

You may also want to watch:

“But the set-piece (second goal by Yoann Arquin) was really disappointing. That killed us, and the third goal was frustrating because goal difference could still be a factor.”

The U’s entertain MK Dons tomorrow evening. Joe Dunne’s men are five points clear of the bottom four, with three games remaining.
