Luke Prosser made a welcome return to the Colchester United starting line-up on Saturday, but it was an afternoon of mixed emotions for the U’s club captain.

Prosser was introduced as a 75th minute substitute during the 3-1 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers, after a 14-month absence due to a knee injury.

But whereas the 29-year-old centre-half was delighted to finally be back in a U’s shirt, competing on the pitch, he admitted that the overall team display was “poor.”

“It’s been a long time for me, so obviously to get some minutes on the pitch with the boys was good,” said Prosser.

“But it was mixed emotions for me. On a personal note it was good to be out there, but I thought it was a poor performance today.
