COLCHESTER United manager Geraint Williams believes that a victory and a clean-sheet are just around the corner, after his team were good value for a point in a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

“Once again, the lads have come off the pitch disappointed that they have not won the game,” explained Williams.

“It was the same against Sheffield United the previous weekend. Today, I felt that we created the three best chances in the first-half, and were very unlucky to go in only drawing 1-1.

“One slight mistake (from Chris Coyne) fell to the wrong man (Andy Cole), and we were punished. But our heads didn't go down.

“The lads know that they are in a relegation fight, and they are not hiding from it. Over the last month, I think that we have been defending very, very well, and I'm sure that a clean sheet is just around the corner,” added Williams.
