Colchester United boss Tony Humes believed that his side could have nicked a point, during tonight’s 3-2 defeat at Barnsley.

Manager Humes said: “It’s disappointing and frustrating to score two goals away from home and yet still lose the game.

“It’s a shame because I thought it was a good performance again tonight. But we keep giving ourselves a mountain to climb, concding a goal very early doors in the first half which gave us something to really work at.

“And the two goals at the start of the second half made it really difficult for us.

“But you’ve got to commend the players because they again showed good character to get back into the game, and I thought we could have nicked an equaliser and so get a point at the end.

“The players kept going and they didn’t get disheartened about it. We kept creating chances,” added Humes.”

Sanchez Watt (15 minutes) and Freddie Sears (75) were on target for the U’s, but in the end without reward.
