ON the day that Teddy Sheringham announced he was going to retire at the end of this season, Colchester United slithered deeper into the relegation mire following a 1-0 home defeat by Wolves.

Manager Geraint Williams paid tribute to Sheringham, and also had words of encouragement for his team, despite this latest home reverse.

“I was annoyed after the Bristol City defeat (2-1) last weekend, but I was happier with my players today. We were beaten with our heads still up.

“I thought the game summed up our season so far in a nutshell. Wolves were clinical with the one chance that they had in the first half, while we failed to take our chances.

“We perhaps did not put Wolves under enough pressure in the second-half, but then you have to give them some credit - Wolves keep more clean-sheets than anyone else in this division.

“We tried to stay positive, and we certainly won't be moaning and moping around. We will be giving it a real go at Plymouth on Tuesday,” added Williams.

The U's boss said of Sheringham's decision to retire in a couple of months' time: “I can't see speak highly enough of Teddy. He has always had the will to win, which you can't just instil in a player.

“His professionalism has been legendary throughout his career. We respect his decision.”
