COLCHESTER United dominant today's League One clash with promotion rivals Brentford at Layer Road but had to settle for a point.

The visitors took the lead through Jay Tabb's low shot after just six minutes, but the U's equalised in the 31st minute when Chris Iwelumo headed home Karl Duguid's excellent cross.

Although Colchester went on to dominate the remainder of the match they could not find a way through and were unable to close the gap on Brentford who remain three points clear of the U's.
