Colchester United boss Tony Humes believed that Chries Porter’s penalty miss was the key moment, following this afternoon’s 2-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers.
Striker Porter’s 12th minute penalty miss proved crucial, as Rovers bolstered their play-off hopes with goals from left-back Enda Stevens (40 minutes) and Nathan Tyson (83rd minute penalty).
Humes rued: “I didn’t think there was a lot in the game.
“Possibly Doncaster created a few more chances than us, but the big difference was that they took their chances and we didn’t.
“They took their chance to go 1-0 up, and obviously they scored their penalty and we missed ours.

“We would have backed Chris (Porter) to score from the spot, and if he had scored then it would have been a very different game.
“That’s the disappointing thing, and that’s the frustrating thing,” added Humes.
