Colchester United boss Tony Humes was remaining upbeat after his side’s home defeat to Bury this afternoon.
The U’s dominated this game for large chunks, only to suffer a 1-0 loss due to Leon Clarke’s clinical header in the 75th minute.
It was rough luck on the hosts, who missed several chances and were also denied by some fine goalkeeping from Rob Lainton.
“It was a very tight game throughout,” explained Humes.
“There was not much in it, but I thought we dominated the majority of the game, and had most of the chances.

“However, their keeper made three great saves.
“The first goal was always going to win this game, and they’ve nicked it.
