JOHN Ward admitted that his Colchester United team were second best during this afternoon’s 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United.

The U’s boss had no complaints as two early goals from Ched Evans and Chris Porter, followed by a second-half strike from Stephen Quinn, wrapped up an easy win for the Blades.

“It was terribly disappointing, but we have played a team who have gone joint top of the league,” explained Ward.

“We talked to the players on Thursday and Friday and I don’t think I frightened them by saying it was a great place to come and play. It’s a great arena to come and put yourself on show.

“They know that we have probably’ been a bit easy to beat, and we know that we have to do better than that, even against the better teams,” added Ward.
