Colchester United boss, John McGreal, was very disappointed with his side’s display in today’s 2-1 home defeat to Accrington Stanley.
Drey Wright’s seventh minute opener was wiped out by second-half goals from Frenchman Romuald Boco and Billy Kee.
“There was nothing going on in the game, and we had the ball in the top corner, when they broke to score,” rued McGreal, with reference to Boco’s solo goal equaliser on 58 minutes.
“We had time to regroup, and even when they got their second goal, there was still 20 minutes for us to get back into the game.
“We should still have got something out of the game, and if we want to be a good team, we need to be seeing these games out, or at least getting a point from it.

“It’s something we have got to improve on. We were 1-0 up at half-time and we should have seen out the game.
“We didn’t really create anything in the second-half,” added McGreal.

Accrington manager John Coleman said: “It was certainly a game of two halves.
“Colchester were comfortably the better team in the first half. They passed the ball better and they should perhaps have been more than 1-0 up, if I’m being honest.
“But we responded well in the second half.”
