Colchester United end losing streak with deserved draw

Colchester United 0 Rotherham United 0
Colchester United halted a run of three straight defeats, by holding in-form Rotherham to a deserved share of the spoils at the Weston Homes Community Stadium tonight.
In fact, the U’s were just a whisker away from celebrating what would have been a first win in six matches, when Sanchez Watt’s 64th minute cracker cannoned back off the bar.
Watt had also had a goal disallowed in the first half. The ex-Arsenal winger swept a loose ball into an unguarded net, only for referee Brendan Malone to rule out the goal for a foul on keeper Adam Collin by Clinton Morrison.
Rotherham had won five of their previous six matches, but they were certainly made to work for their point in Essex.
