RICHARD Garcia spurned a great chance to grab a late winner for Colchester United in a rather mundane goalless stalemate against Burnley on Saturday.
The Australian attacker headed over from point blank range, following Chris Barker's cross, with just seven minutes remaining at Layer Road.
That miss summed up the U's frustrating afternoon, although they did collect another welcome point to consolidate their top 10 position in the Championship.

“We are in a bit of a lull at the moment (one point from three games), but we are still confident of picking it up again for a good run-in.
“Teams are starting to take notice of us now. They are coming to Layer Road and being wary of what we can do.
“It was a nothing second-half for us. We just couldn't break them down,” added Garcia.
