‘We did enough to win this game’ – Colchester United manager Joe Dunne

Colchester United boss, Joe Dunne, thought that his side did enough to take all three points from this afternoon’s 0-0 draw at Crewe.

Freddie Sears nearly secured what would have been a valuable away win, when his 66th minute shot cannoned back off a post.

As it is, this goalless draw for the U’s sees them just one point clear of the relegation zone, going into the final two games of the season.

“A draw was possibly the right result, although I thought we did enough to win the game,” insisted Dunne.

“Freddie (Sears) hit the post, which sums up how it’s been going for us lately.

“That was the closest to a goal all game, and I don’t think Sam Walker had even one clear-cut save to make.

“We came with a game plan and we certainly didn’t want to leave ourselves too open at the back, when we were attacking, because we have conceded like that in past games.
