CENTRE-half Magnus Okuonghae summed up the mood in the Colchester United dressing room, following the failure to beat Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

A 0-0 home draw was not enough to guarantee the U’s League One safety, due to Scunthorpe’s 1-0 win at MK Dons, so the season stays alive until the final day.

The U’s need a point, from their last day trip to Carlisle, to be sure of avoiding relegation.

“We are disappointed, but on the other hand it is still in our hands,” explained Okuonghae.

“We haven’t got time to cry about it. We huffed and puffed, but we never really got going, that was the most frustrating thing.

You may also want to watch:

“I think it is the manner in which we drew the game that hurts. I think we could have had a lot of more energy.

“These things happen, but we will be working hard to do at Carlisle what we should have done today,” added Okuonghae.
