‘We did not deserve to win’ – Wordsworth

ANTHONY Wordsworth admits that Colchester United did not deserve to beat bottom club Leyton Orient on Saturday.

ANTHONY Wordsworth has admitted that Colchester United did not deserve to beat bottom club Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Despite the blow of conceding an injury-time equaliser, Wordsworth had no complaints with the 1-1 home draw. He had earlier netted his fourth goal of the season.

“Everyone was disappointed with the way we conceded the goal at the end but, in general, I don’t think we deserved to win the game,” confessed Wordsworth.

“We were the better side in the first half but they came at us after the break and I don’t think we were good enough on the ball.

“We certainly did not play as we have done previously, especially at home, so overall I think it was a fair result.

“I hit the shot for the goal and then someone bumped into my back so I did not see it hit the net but I went and celebrated anyway.”
