Colchester United boss Tony Humes left “gutted” by his team’s defending

The U’s manager was dismayed with the way that his side defended, in terms of the Cobblers three goals, which wiped out a brace from teenage striker Macauley Bonne.
“I’m gutted with this defeat,” rued Humes, following his side’s latest disappointment – they have failed to win any of their first seven league and cup games at the start of this season.
Humes added: “I’m especially disappointed with the manner in which we conceded the goals.
