COLCHESTER United manager Geraint Williams wonders what his side have to do to win a game!
The U's took just a solitary point from a 1-1 draw against Cardiff City, in a game that they dominated. Johnnie Jackson's 71st minute bullet cancelled out Paul Parry's 11th minute opener.
Williams said: “I thought my players were magnificent from the first whistle to the last. We created so many good openings.

“I'm disappointed for the players that we didn't get the win that they deserved. I'm sure the results will turn around, with all this effort put in and the good football played.
“But it does make you wonder what we have to do to win a game! We had so much possession, and really dominated. I thought we were going to nick it at the end.

“We were on top even before they were reduced to ten men,” added Williams.
The U's boss thought that Bluebirds striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was unlucky to be dismissed for violent conduct, following his high boot in the face of keeper Dean Gerken.
Williams admitted: “I thought it was a bit harsh. There was no malice in the challenge. Dean has a bang on the head, but he's a tough lad. You expect that in football.
“We've been competitive for most of this season, but we haven't been successful in enough games. That was the case again today, because we created more openings than Cardiff.”
The U's have just eight games left, with 24 points to play for. But relegation is now a near certainty.
