Colchester United boss Joe Dunne felt hard done by after his side suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat at promotion contenders Leyton Orient this afternoon.
Marcus Bean looked to have secured a deserved point for the U’s, by heading home an equaliser in the 80th minute, only for Moses Odubajo to grab the winner just four minutes later on the break.
Earlier, David Mooney had broken the deadlock against his old club with a deadly finish in the 21st minute.
Dunne said: “Overall, anyone who was here today would have thought the better team lost.
“I think we at least deserved a draw. We did all the attacking, probably out-shot them and made their keeper (Eldin Jakupovic) work.

“Two switch-off moments have cost us, but unfortunately that’s I suppose what you get when they are top of the league, and when we are near the bottom.
“But overall I am very pleased with the performances of late.

“As we were saying in the dressing room afterwards, it’s got to turn soon. We can’t keep playing the way we are at the moment and not pick up points and not pick up wins,” added Dunne.
Only goal difference is keeping the U’s out of the bottom four now, as results largely went against them today.
