“It was some game!” – admits Colchester United star Darren Ambrose

Darren Ambrose may have scored his second goal for the club, to put the U’s 4-3 up on their way to a 4-4 draw against Walsall on Saturday, but the ex-Ipswich attacker was feeling disappointed rather than contented at the final whistle.
“If you had said at half-time – ‘would you take a draw?’ – then we would have,” said Ambrose. The U’s were trailing 2-0 at the interval.
Ambrose continued: “It shows the character that we have in the team, during that second half, for us to end up being disappointed.
“It was a quiet dressing room at the end there, because we felt it was two points dropped.
“I don’t think it should have been 2-0 to them at half-time, because it was an even game.

“We were unlucky to be 2-0 down. It shows just how far we have come, to end up being disappointed.
“But it was some game!” added Ambrose.

The U’s were 2-0 down at half-time, conceding goals to Romaine Sawyers (11) and Milan Lalkovic (30).
But they came storming back to 2-2, through George Moncur (49) and Marvin Sordell (52), goals both set up by Ambrose.
George Evans restored Walsall’s lead, only for Owen Garvan (59) and Ambrose (79) to put the U’s 4-3 ahead, until defender James O’Connor grabbed an injury-time equaliser for the second-placed Saddlers.
