Colchester United were denied a first away win of the season by substitute Sam Jones’ 89th minute penalty in tonight’s 2-2 draw at Grimsby Town.

However, at least winger Kyel Reid’s sweet brace earned John McGreal’s men a first away point, following four straight defeats on the road.

“We were under a ton of pressure late on, but we were not really being threatened,” explained McGreal.

“I thought we could see the game out, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case.

“But I still see this as a good point for us. The boys have put in another terrific shift.

“Grimsby didn’t really create an awful lot, and we got a good 70 minutes out of Kyel (Reid), which is more than we thought after his recent injury. It’s a shame we could not see the game out, but it’s our first point away from home, and hopefully the first of many for us.”

Grimsby boss Russell Slade said: “I thought we were by far the better side.”
