RETURNING skipper Dean Hammond rescued a point for Colchester at Huddersfield with a fine stoppage time free kick.

The captain, who missed last Saturday's game with a sore hamstring, scored both goals in a game the Essex side were fortunate to seal a point from.

U's led at the break courtesy of a Hammond penalty, scored in the 18th minute following a controversial handball decision. But they were comprehensively outplayed in the second half and a defeat looked to be on the cards following Anthony Pilkington's tap in from close range and a fine Gary Roberts finish.

But the U's hung on and when they were awarded a free kick just outside the box in the first of six added on minutes, Hammond curled home into the top left hand corner to snatch a share of the spoils.
