COLCHESTER United boss, Geraint Williams, hailed his side's 2-2 draw at league leaders Watford as a “terrific team performance.”

It was a big boost going into the fortnight's break for internationals, and it was no more than the U's deserved.

“I have felt that a bit of negativity outside the club was beginning to creep in, but we have always remained very positive,” insisted Williams.

“To come back from conceding a goal in the first minute at the league leaders says a lot for the character of the team. Many sides would have gone under today, but not us.

“Everyone at the club has to work hard to put ourselves in with a chance of winning games, and it could have gone either way. We withstood the pressure and had chances ourselves.

“All the individuals did the best that they could. It was a good team performance, and I'm very proud of my players.

“Dean (Gerken) has always been a good keeper, and I'm delighted that he saved a penalty today. We were conceding a lot of goals at the start of the season, and it was affecting his confidence. But he has showed what a good keeper he is.

“This division is very tight. Most games are being decided on one bit of skill or a slice of luck,” added Williams.

Strikers Clive Platt (20 minutes) and Kevin Lisbie (46) were on target for the U's. It was their third draw on the trot.
