John Ward gives the case for the defence
COLCHESTER United boss John Ward praised his team after keeping their fourth clean-sheet in five games at Wycombe this afternoon.
The U’s secured a goalless draw at Adams Park to move up a place to ninth in League One.
Ward said: “We have had to work very hard for this clean-sheet,
“There were a lot of long throws coming into our penalty box. Wycombe were quite direct opponents, but effective, and we had to deal with that.
“My back four and my goalkeeper (Ben WIlliams) were once again very strong and very solid,” added Ward.
