Colchester United midfielder George Moncur notched his fifth goal of the season in last Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Gillingham, but he was in no mood to celebrate.
The ex-West Ham midfielder had rifled the U’s into a 1-0 lead, just after the hour mark, but in the end a 96th minute goal by Gills skipper Doug Loft denied the U’s a crucial victory. Moncur admitted: “It was devastating not to pick up the three points, and to me it felt like a loss.
“The lads put in such a terrific effort, but now we have to go again.
“When you get a goal up, you do naturally drop back, but we couldn’t manage to hold on.
“A win at Gillingham would have got us right up there. We are down the bottom and we need to get out of it.”

On a personal note, Moncur was happy to bag his fifth goal of the season: “I was pleased to score, and I feel like I’m getting back to where I was before I got ill.
“I was effectively out for a month with flu and then tonsillitis.”
