WE have come such a long way, to feel disappointed at only getting a point from a trip to Hull. That's so far from where everyone expected us to be this season. I think today was two points dropped. In fact, we created enough chances to have won two games! There was only ever one team who was going to win it, and that was us. That's why we're disappointed to only get a share of the points.

We were caught ball-watching for their goal, but that doesn't happen very much with our back four, so we will excuse them that. And you can't argue with Jamie Cureton! He always gets in the positions to score and he hates missing. But he always believes that he will score with his next chance and he usually does. Let's hope that he gets three or four more goals before the end of the season. It was a physical battle out there, but we knew that would be the case because Hull are in a dogfight.

It will be a massive game against Sunderland next weekend. They are looking to wrap up promotion but we don't fear anyone and we will be looking to take the three points off them. We get amongst teams at home. We can't be stopped at Layer Road.”

YOU have to give credit to Colchester. They have had a fantastic season, so it was a backs-to-the-wall display from us. It's still about what we do and we are still out of the bottom three. Maybe it's showing signs of coming down to goal difference. We've still got enough about us to survive and it's not all doom and gloom.

Hull City manager Phil Brown

The players on the fringe of the team have wanted to have a chance and I thought that Hogan (Ephraim) and Jacko (Johnnie Jackson) did well. Jacko likes to play in the middle, even though he has played a lot of games on the left for us. Everyone is champing at the bit to play. They want to get in the team and then make my job difficult to leave them out. I may only have a small squad but I still have to make some difficult decisions.”
