COLCHESTER United boss John Ward remained in an upbeat mood, despite his side dropping two points in a 1-1 home draw against Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.

Ashley Vincent’s 25th minute strike was cancelled out by Scott Rendell’s penalty, just after the hour mark, by which time Vincent had already been stretchered off with a twisted knee.

Ward enthused: “There were a lot of good things to come from this football match, as there were over the previous two games.

“We have been toe-to-toe with Wycombe today, and we had a fantastic first half. We have to respect what Wycombe have done in the second period, because they made life more difficult for us.
