Colchester United boss Tony Humes admitted that today’s goalless draw at Crawley Town was “two points dropped.”
The U’s hit the woodwork three times in normal time, through George Moncur and Freddie Sears (twice), while Kaspars Gorkss also hit the post in stoppage time.
“The game was there to be won,” rued Humes.
“I thought we did more than enough to win the game, and if we had scored one, then we would probably have scored several.
“We just need to find that end product, which is something we spoke about before the game.
“We did not have enough quality in front of goal, or enough luck, to win the game.
“But we created enough chances to win it, and we controlled most of the match.
