‘We should have won it’ – so says Gavin Massey

COLCHESTER United’s latest arrival, or rather re-arrival, Gavin Massey, believed that the U’s should have beaten Huddersfield on Saturday.

Winger Massey, back for another loan spell from Watford, was a second-half substitute during the 1-1 draw against the Terriers, who grabbed an equaliser via Magnus Okuonghae’s 94th minute own goal.

Massey said: “We should have won it. Huddersfield were getting leggy late on, and the game started stretching out.

“We missed a penalty and then a mistake at the back cost us, but you can see that we are going in the right direction.”

Meanwhile, skipper Kem Izzet enthused: “Our fans have been really good of late, which shows just what can be achieved.

“There can be no criticism for Anthony Wordsworth (missed penalty), because he has been brilliant for us all season.

“Steven Gillespie’s goal is typical of how the team has been playing, with choosing when to run and when to close down opponents.”

Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson admitted: “This point feels like a win, whereas over the past couple of weeks the draws have felt like defeats. This could prove a vital point come the end of the season.”
