Colchester United keeper, Sam Walker, summed up the mood in the U’s dressing room following this afternoon’s disappointing 2-1 home defeat, at the hands of lowly Crewe.

Walker was beaten twice in the second half, by Chucks Aneke’s shot and then Tom Hitchcock’s header, as Crewe rallied from a goal-down to take all three points, and so clamber off the foot of the League One table.

“It feels at the moment like we get ourselves a good win, and then we let it slip,” rued Walker.

“It’s very frustrating for everyone.

“I felt we were in control at half-time.

“We’ve proved in the past that we can hold out, when teams come at us, but that only makes this doubly disappointing that we allowed Crewe to get back into the game and then ultimately win it,” added the Chelsea loanee.

The U’s, who had taken the lead through Luke Garbutt’s deflected free-kick on 29 minutes, have dropped to 14th in the table. They are now just five points clear of the drop zone.
