Colchester United, boss Tony Humes, admitted that Crewe deserved their 3-2 win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium this afternoon.
Chris Porter gave the U’s the lead, on the stroke of half-time, but second-half goals by James Jones, Nicky Ajose and Anthony Grant inflicted a damaging defeat on the U’s, despite a late consolation from Ipswich Town loanee Jack Marriott.
“I thought Crewe were better than us,” confessed Humes.
“Crewe passed the ball better than us, and played the way that we wanted to play. We couldn’t get the ball.
“We defended reasonably well in the first half, and there were not that many opportunities for them, but we’ve go to be better than that, to build on our goal (Porter).
“I thought we defended poorly as a team. There were individual mistakes, and our back four did not defend well enough.
“We shouldn’t be conceding three goals in 15 minutes!” added Humes.
