Colchester United boss, John McGreal, was satisfied with his side’s performance, despite this afternoon’s 2-0 defeat at high-flying Carlisle.
Second-half goals by Jason Kennedy and former U’s striker Jabo Ibehre condemned McGreal’s men to defeat at Brunton Park, making it just two points gathered from a possible 12 in their last four matches.
McGreal said: “It’s not all doom and gloom, no way.
“We played well, and again it was a game of fine margins.
“We’re just not taking our chances at the moment, and on another day Sammie (Szmodics) would have stuck away his chance. I’m sure he will soon be going on a run of goals.
