JOHN Ward was happy with his side’s one point as Steven Gillespie’s 74th minute equaliser secured a 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe this afternoon.

Colchester United boss Ward explained: “I thought the point was better than the performance today.

“We have just come to a side that last year was playing in the Championship, and this was the latest in a number of tough games after Charlton and Preston as well.

“We haven’t played very well, but on days away from home when we were castigated last season, you can’t do that this season. You can be disappointed with the performance, but pleased with the result.
