Szmodics and Thompson on target in Colchester United draw at Dover
Dover Athletic 2 Colchester United 2
Colchester United were held to a draw at Conference club Dover Athletic in their latest pre-season game tonight.
The U’s fell behind after just four minutes, with Stone on target for the Kent hosts, who had clinched promotion to the fifth tier last season.
But Sammie Szmodics levelled by converting Gavin Massey’s cross, at the second attempt, and Josh Thompson then headed home George Moncur’s corner, just before half-time, to give the U’s 2-1 lead.
However, the visitors were denied victory when Elder slotted home a 78th minute equaliser.
