Colchester United manager Geraint Williams was left furious with his defence after they capitulated in the second half at Layer Road today.
He said: “We said at half-time they (Coventry) were not creating much but our defence was simply woeful in the second half.
You may also want to watch:
“We have lost the points at the back. Their first goal was just a long punt forward and our two centre halves had just one man to mark. And yet he has managed to get his shot in and score and after that the rot set in.
“I could have made changes at the back in the second half but I decided they should continue to suffer just like me and the fans had to.”
