COLCHESTER United boss Joe Dunne was disappointed with the way his side ended the game, but he still thought the final score-line was harsh at Bramall Lane this afternoon.
The U’s fell behind to a fourth minute penalty by Barry Robson, before conceding second-half goals to Kevin McDonald (73) and Dave Kitson (injury-time).
“I was disappointed with our last 10 minutes of the match,” admitted Dunne.
“I thought we lost a bit of belief in ourselves.
“However, I felt it wasn’t easy going down, to a penalty, straight away.

“But after the first goal we got into the game really well. We got into some good attacking positions, but our end product wasn’t as good as of late.
“Generally, I was quite pleased at half-time, and in the end I think 3-0 is harsh,” added Dunne.
The U’s stay 20th in League One, one place and two points ahead of Oldham, who didn’t have a league game today.
Preston pulled six points clear of the U’s, by beating Bournemouth, but fellow strugglers Scunthorpe were beaten by Yeovil.
