Colchester United manager, Kevin Keen, was pleased with his side’s strong defensive performance in today’s 0-0 draw against play-off chasing Millwall.

The U’s produced a gutsy display, even though Millwall finished the stronger and looked the more likely winners.

But the one point might not be enough, in the final analysis, with the U’s perhaps needing to win all six of their remaining matches to stay up.

“As much as we need to win football matches, you have to look at the last four or five performances,” insisted Keen.

“The club as a whole is going in the right direction, and the players are playing their part and they’re playing for the fans.
