Colchester United boss, John McGreal, rued his side’s missed changes in today’s 2-1 home defeat to Wycombe Wanderers.
“Their keeper (Scott Brown) played a blinder,” explained McGreal.
“But we’ve got to take it on the chin and just keep it going. We’ve got to keep working hard.
“There were one or to groans when the players came off the pitch at the end, but we’re not too far off. The boys have put in another terrific shift.
“I thought we were unlucky not to get three points, let alone even a point.
“We had about 17 or 18 shots, and their keeper made some wonderful saves.
“We missed some good chances, including Kyel Reid late on when he was free at the back post but fired it wide.
“But to only score one goal is not good enough,” added McGreal.
The U’s suffered their first home league defeat of the season, and only their third home league loss of 2017.
Craig Mackail-Smith netted the winner on 67 minutes, after Brandon Hanlan had marked his full debut with a 43rd minute equaliser, following Nathan Tyson’s 31st minute opener.
