COLCHESTER United boss Geraint Williams criticised his side for another sloppy start as they crashed to defeat at the hands of visiting Crystal Palace.
“It's very annoying. We had talked about starting brightly, but once again we weren't positive early on,” admitted Williams.

“The game was won and lost in the first 10 minutes. You can't keep coming back from these knocks, especially when they are all self-inflicted. People keep saying what a fantastic effort to get back into the game, but we must learn from our mistakes, and quickly.
“We go caught out for the first goal. Once again we allowed a player to get behind us too easily to cross, and then an innocuous long ball led to the sending off (of Pat Baldwin). I have no complaints with that decision.

“We created three or four good chances after going down to 10 men, but once again we gave ourselves a mountain to climb with such a poor start.
“We're at Wolves on Wednesday, and there might be changes,” added Williams.
