Colchester United boss, Tony Humes, was left devastated after his side leaked a last gasp equaliser during this afternoon’s 2-2 draw at Gillingham.
Chris Porter’s 87th minute header appeared to have won it for the U’s, only for Doug Loft to slam home an equaliser in the sixth minute of injury-time.
Earlier, George Moncur’s 63rd minute opener had been cancelled out by Max Ehmer’s equaliser, while U’s left-back Matt Briggs was also sent off in injury time for two bookable offences.
“It feels like a defeat,” rued Humes.
“It was so close, and yet so far, yet again.

“The boys have been fantastic, and yet in the last minute a little bit of naivety and youthful exuberance, when we’ve got to learn how to manage games, has cost us.
“Otherwise, we could have had three fantastic points,” added Humes.
