U’s and Dale can’t find a goal between them

COLCHESTER and Rochdale played out a dull goalless draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium this afternoon.

COLCHESTER and Rochdale played out a dull goalless draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium this afternoon.

The U’s had the better of the first half and in home-debuting Freddie Sears had the liveliest player on show.

But defences ruled as the game wore on in this game and neither side possessed a player with enough quality to unlock the other’s defence.

For improving Rochdale it was a vital point to aid their relegation fears. But for U’s, although their endeavour cannot be faulted, this was a very average performance and a few boos rang out at the final whistle from home fans.
