‘It could have been worse’ - Joe Dunne
COLCHESTER United boss Joe Dunne was not a happy man after seeing his side surrender a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Shrewsbury Town this afternoon.
Goals from the Arsenal loanee duo of Craig Eastmond (three minutes) and Sanchez Watt (52 minutes) put the U’s in the driving seat.
But Dunne’s men then leaked two late headers, from corners, both netted by substitute Asa Hall (79 and 81 minutes).
Both sides could then have won it during a breathtaking finale.
Dunne rued: “A mad three minutes has cost us two points, and it feels like a defeat.

“We are not good enough to sit off teams, which I thought we did after scoring our second goal.
“Let’s be honest. I thought it could have been worse. Shrewsbury could have had a penalty at the end and they missed a couple of good chances to make it 3-2.

“So we brought it upon ourselves, conceding goals from set pieces where nobody was marking.
“We are disappointed with drawing, but it could have been worse,” added Dunne.
