COLCHESTER United boss Geraint Williams praised his team for a spirited performance at Ashton Gate, even though his side dropped to the bottom of the Championship.
The U's were good value for their 1-1 draw at Bristol City, although Williams felt that his side should have been awarded a last gasp penalty for a foul on Kevin Lisbie by Tamas Vaskos.
Williams said: “I felt that it was a blatant penalty, and Kevin (Lisbie) certainly thinks that it was! Bristol had a couple of penalty shouts themselves, so I'm not complaining too much, although I thought that ours was more blatant.
“I'm proud of my players for their performance, but we're disappointed not to get the victory. Bristol City are a good footballing side, and we had to dig deep and stay committed.

“We were very positive early on, and Kevin (Lisbie) took his goal well. It was all about his first touch. We knew that we would have to weather a storm, and so it proved,” added Williams.
